    A simple one - start of clip button

    Just a simple question here.  I'm sure I'm overlooking something basic.  When I did the upgrade from Express to MC, I notice that whenever I use the "Goto begining of clip" button, it takes me to the start of the clip and puts me into Trim mode.  In express, it would leave me in the mode I was in, when I used the function.

    Anyone know how I can change this back so that when I want to move the CTI to the top of a clip on the timeline, it doesn't force me into Trim mode???

     

    Many thanks.

    Map FF and REW in place of next or previous edit. That will snap you to the an edit point without going into trim.

    Use the FF and RW buttons (I think they're on "1" and "2" keys).

    You can also go into the settings and choose whether you want them to stop on head or tail frames, and whether to follow or ignore the highlighted track selections.

    These buttons were in  Xpress as well, but the "goto beginning of clip" buttons had their functionality removed so they were the same as FF/RW, and lots of people got used to using those ones instead. Once you get used to the MC settings you'll find it's great to have the option to jump to an edit and automatically go into trim mode. But of course, you don't need that all the time!

    cheers

    And when in the effects mode, FF and REW will snap to next and previous keyframes.

    Re: A simple one - start of clip button

    Thanks guys.  FF/REW totally did it for me.  In fact, I didn't have those mapped to anything on the keyboard.  I've been cutting Avid for about 7 years and I've been on MC for about 6 months now and I LOVE it.  That was one of the last things bugging me about the switch though.  I'm going to NAB in April.  Hoping to see something cool from Avid.
