    extract a clip and automatically copy it to 'clipboard'

    I have been editing with the Media Composer 3 (I think) on a PC and there was a great shortcut:

    If I would extract or lift a clip (or sequence), it would automatically be copied to the "memory" of the computer and afterwards holding the ctrl+alt or ctrl+shift I could re-insert this clip at another point.

    Does this still exist in Media Composer 5 on a Mac?

    Thank you!

    Hy Mirja,

    On Mac, alt+c copy the part of the timeline marked in and out and load it in the source monitor.

    Hope it help you.

    Thank you! I have used apple+alt+c so far to do the same thing. Only alt+c makes it somewhat easier.

    Still, the other shortcut was really good, since I wouldn't lose what I had opened in the viewer.

    Right now I am using the clipboard monitor, but I woul still have to do the three steps of copying the clip, deleting the clip and putting it to a different place instead of just deleting it and re-inserting.

    All right, got it. Sort of blind I have been:

    As soon as I cut something out it opens up in the clipboard monitor and I can cut it right back in where I want.

    Guess that's how this monitor works, that I just discovered for me...

    And exactly what I was looking for.
