Additional QT keyboard tips for editing
Authored by: rusto on Apr 17, '07 10:14:40AM

1) Start your movie in QT (or you could just drag the playhead to where you want to begin the clip)

2) Set start of section you wish to copy out by typing shift-right arrow (this will bring both edit markers to the playhead position). Play will stop at this point.

3) Restart playback by tapping space bar and set end of clip you wish to copy by typing shift-right arrow again.

OR

4) Drag right edit marker to where you want to end the clip.

5) If you nailed it, copy and paste the section to a new movie.

6) If you wish to tweak the start and end edit marker positions, move the playhead to the marker you want to nudge by typing either option-right arrow or option-left arrow and then nudge them by holding the shift key down and tapping either the right or left arrow.

NOTE: if you CLICK on an edit marker (it will turn black), shift-right/left arrow will only move that selected marker. To deselect an edit marker, click on the playhead (making it black).

Additional QT keyboard tips for editing

Hi,

It would be much easier to use SimpleMovieX.
Not only is this app designed to deal with long movies (search by thumbnails, zoomable timeline, keyframe indicator), but it also has a "Split" fonction that does it in one shot once you've placed chapter marks at the edit points.
And it can be used for free.

Note: I'm the developer of this app...

Nice app. I like the ability to to zoom in on the timeline to place playhead or set edit markers! Keyboard hints just above the timeline are nice too.

Can chapter markers be moved once placed?
