If you’ve ever used Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve Speed Editor, you may have noticed that you can’t ripple trim from playhead to the beginning of an edit.
While Blackmagic has designed their keyboard for new workflows, it’s inarguable that the ripple trim from playhead method is the fastest.
Let’s take a look at a creative workaround for how we can ripple trim from playhead to an edit on the Speed Editor.
I have scoured the internet for other methods, looking into programming the hardware keys in Terminal (no success), other programs and alternatives, but Keyboard Maestro has been the only one that has allowed me to intro a whole new array of automations for forcing the Speed Editor to have more functions that it’s shipped with.
You can download Keyboard Maestro here.
Once you do, you’re ready for step 2.
Note: If time is more valuable to you than learning how to do all of this nitty gritty work, you can skip the work and purchase my automation file for Keyboard Maestro here.
If you want to do this yourself and spend less, continue reading to learn how to set this up!
Now that you have Keyboard Maestro installed, it’s time to set up a macro automation that allows us to ripple trim from wherever your playhead is in the timeline.
Skip all the setup work, and avoid paying full price for Keyboard Maestro.
