I do a TON of jump cuts...

And it would be great if I could position the playhead back one frame, select the clip and delete it all in one shortcut.

Right now, I have to click the left-arrow key, click the C key, then click the Command+X key for this.

Is there a better, faster shortcut for this (and yes, I am using a cheap Bluetooth keyboard)?

I might be wrong (I don’t use a keyboard) but isn’t it easier to just use the screen? Tap on the preceding clip, tap on the delete button. Just two taps.
Having said that I’m all for user automation to reduce taps/clicks!

I didn’t even know there were keyboard shortcuts

https://luma-touch.helpscoutdocs.com/ar ... lumafusion

If software automatically selected the clip at the time, it would save you from having to use the c key.

And don’t you split the clip first? So you really use four keystrokes?

Interesting that you use a keyboard. I’ve found keyboard shortcuts very handy for nested menus but not so handy for well placed menus with a touch system.

Those shortcuts to the specific editors for example which could be multiple taps look more efficient from a keyboard,

Maybe what would make sense is a macro capability in the software.

Perhaps one dedicated macro button on the bottom. You would just tap.

Things like paste which are two clicks could be a macro too.

Hello Purdy,

The keyboard Bluetooth connected would once mastered improve speed by a good 30 %

Really? I’m curious. I’ve always thought a keyboard would be great for touch typing because you don’t have to look at your fingers but when editing are you looking at the screen, often tapping there, and then moving your hands to the keyboard and say selecting ctrl-X without looking at the keyboard? I’m sure I’d be looking down to the keyboard to find the right keys. I guess one hand stays on the keyboard. Is that it?

I dragged out my Bluetooth keyboard and I think a couple of things are faster but

So many of the shortcuts require two keys and the rights hand that I think it is not really a timesaver.

This might be because I have new iPad Pro with Apple Pencil 2.

The exception is using the arrow keys to step back and forth through a clip.

And I think that is because the frame by frame in the preview window was changed since there isn’t a dedicated icon.

I am a touch typist and if the shortcut was a single letter or number on the left hand that would help.

Also, most of the shortcuts are simple single tap commands and with a pencil, it is pretty quick.

Where I find keyboards work really well is of course entering text and with a mouse, and especially with drop down menus.

If on the other hand, a muli tap macro could be assigned to a key, that would be a big productivity boost.

Be interesting to see a video of the workflow with a keyboard.

You know you can move one frame at a time by swiping the preview sideways?

Yes, no comparison.

Try it on a keyboard. You can hold they key down or click it fast.

The swipe is one frame and slow. Oddly, you can hold down the advance to next clip button and it will slowly advance frame by frame

In the edit window you get the frame by frame icon back and you can click it quickly, hold it down and it is slow.

I think it would be nice if the rate was pressure sensitive.

At any rate the keyboard arrow keys are better than the frame by frame features on the screen.

Guys you have to try over time to find out, I’m old school Final Cut, my fingers look at the screen and not at the key board, like a preying mantis finger hovers over space bar and I and O.

With LumaFusion it second nature, except E does not place at the end of the time line and F will not height light the trim line.

Ps tell me more about frame by frame without the keyboard please ?
I use arrows of course when keyboard connected

Regards Rob

I’m guessing most people spend 90% of their time scrubbing and trimming. So making that process efficient is extremely important. As you mention I and O, in and out with playing the space bar.

For single frame without the keyboard, you can of course, simply zoom in (pinch out two fingers) on the timeline so you can see the frame marks and move your finger back and forth on or more frames at a time.

This is in my opinion the single greatest joy of using the iPad to edit video, having your fingers as the jog and zoom control.

You can also swipe left or right inside the preview window this moves the timeline one frame.

You can tap and hold on the arrows on the review window, this moves slowly one frame at a time.

You can tap and hold the play button, this pops up the scrubber and lets you move forward and back at 1, 5 etc. frames per second.

If you want to move 4 frames, say with four clicks on the keyboard, you can’t do that in the preview window. Swiping four times, is slower.

You can however, do that in edit window, since you get more arrows.

After playing with this quite a bit, it is so tantalizingly close to being a phenomenal editor. There are inconsistencies across the windows and if more attention was focused on reducing the number of taps needed for trimming, splitting, slipping, and ordering clips, this would be a simply outstanding product.

I personally would rather see the program tightened up with workflow before adding any new features.
