How to Do an Add Edit in Adobe Premiere Pro

Adobe Premiere Pro CS5001

I keep hearing from folks who are looking for the Add Edit tool in Adobe Premiere Pro. It's there, just under a different name. As you edit in the timeline, you may want to change the length of a shot. Here are a few quick editing techniques you should know:

  • Razor – Press Cmd+K (Ctrl+K) to split a clip at the playhead.
  • Razor All Tracks – Press Shift+Cmd+K (Shift+Ctrl+K) to split all tracks at the playhead.
  • Clear – Press the Forward Delete key to remove a selected segment and leave a hole behind.
  • Ripple Delete – Press Shift + Forward Delete to remove a selected segment and close the gap in the sequence.
