Default command-/alt-plus/minus extends clip to wrong length

Hi,

I've just posted this because it has been bugging me for years. Would be great if AVID could change this behavior. It's not logical and would be more helpful if it worked as posted here:

http://protools.ideascale.com/a/dtd/...79?submitted=1

This feature comes very handy when fixing B/Gs after conformalizing to re-create 1 frame cross-fades in an A/B tracklay.

Ultimately it would be even better if "preserve fades" finally worked as it hasn't since it's advent in PT7.2 (I think) and now we're almost at PT11. As long as it doesn't I use the above constantly to work around the issue. But that forces me to constantly switch my nudge-grid back and forth.

See here for details:

Cheers,

Frank.

Have I maybe found a solution?

If you make the selection beyond the region, press command + and then keep holding command and press -, the roll out returns to the selected length.

I was able to make this work multiple times.

This isn't a shortcut I'd heard of before though so maybe It wouldn't work in all cases?

Nice catch! Although I'd still vote for changing it to something less weird. Would cut the number of necessary keystrokes in half as well.

Thanks for the shortcut Frank, I wasn't aware of that one, I usually just drag stuff out.

I can see some good uses for it.

I agree it should work first time and not need an extra key press, I voted for it too.

Cheers

Martin

It works on lots of things. You can extend/shorten selections with it too, not just clips. Saves a lot of mousing around.
Having said that, I now see the conflict because that short-cut "obeys" the nudge value. It's just that it seem to add the nudge value to the selected length when extending beyond the end of the clip. Would be great if they could prevent the nudge-value from being added to the selection.

Isn´t "Edit - Trim Clip - End to Fill Selection" doing that? (extend just to the end insertion and not plus the nudge value)
Does not have a shortcut assigned, but may be customized.
