Default Sync audio clip to timeline cursor position?

I'm stuck trying to do what must be a simple task in Pro Tools but I haven't been able to work it out so advice from more experienced operators would be gratefully received.

I want to sync a sound effect audio clip to a specific video frame, for example an explosion. I have a video track with burnt in timecode, aligned with timecode in the main timeline counter. I've first marked a sync point on the audio clip and have then scrubbed the timeline so that the playback cursor is at the timecode position and the video frame I'm trying to sync to is showing in the video window. How then to I snap the audio clip to the playback cursor?

I know in SPOT MODE I can double click on the clip to open the spot dialog box and enter a timecode position manually but that seems very slow.

This must be bread and butter for postproduction so is there a standard workflow for this, for example some command that would "move sync point of audio clip to current timecode position in timeline" or some other method.

Thanks for any input

Default Re: Sync audio clip to timeline cursor position?

Sorry to waste time and space on the forum but I've got it.

I can click on the audio clip with the grabber tool holding down the modifiers


to move the front, back and sync point position of the clip to the cursor position.
