Some other notable things


To Skim Press and then hold Shift+Alt. Scrub or seek through content by moving the mouse cursor up and downwards without clicking and dragging.


  • Whilst adjusting a shot or trimming, hold down the Alt option on MacOS to momentarily disable snapping. On Linux, if you press Alt before dragging, it typically shifts the application window; therefore, ensure you press Alt after initiating the drag.
  • To skim through content without clicking and dragging, press and hold Shift+Alt while using the horizontal position of the mouse cursor.
  • Click twice on a fade in/out control (circle) to switch it between a duration of one second and no duration.
  • Press and hold the Ctrl key on MacOS as you drag one side of a marker to adjust its duration.

Multiple Selection in Playlist and Timeline

  • To choose a sequence of clips (several consecutive clips), simply click on the initial (or final) clip, then hold down the Shift key and click on the last (or initial) clip.
  • To choose or unselect several clips one by one, press and hold the Ctrl key on MacOS while clicking on the clips.

Numeric Fields

Numeric fields can be increased or decreased by scrolling the mouse wheel when the cursor is positioned over them. In certain versions, holding the Ctrl key Command on macOS accelerates the increment and decrement actions, multiplying them by a factor of 10 compared to the usual rate, depending on the number of decimal digits involved.

Entering Time Values

Timecode fields, like the one displayed prominently at the bottom of the player, don’t always necessitate entering a complete timecode value. There are abbreviated methods for inputting time values.

Firstly, entering a number without colons (e.g., 100) denotes a frame number. It’s essential to note that standard numerals start at 0, so 100 directs to the 101st structure. If a colon (:) is formed, it’s diagnosed as either a timecode (HH:MM:SS: FF, where FF represents frames) or a watch value (HH:MM: SS.MS, where MS signifies milliseconds or any trace of a second).

The distinction lies in the delimiter used in the final field, which could be a colon or a decimal point (or comma in some regions). Additionally, not every field of the time value needs to be specified. For instance, entering “::1.0” represents one second.

However, it’s not necessary to include all separators; they’re interpreted from right to left. Hence, in our example, “1:” indicates one second. Similarly, “:1.0” or “:1.” also represents one second, whereas “1.0” does not because it lacks a colon. “:1.5” signifies one and a half seconds. “1::” represents one minute, while “1:30:” stands for one minute and thirty seconds. Lastly, “1:::” denotes one hour.
