On upgrade to 10.0.6 this avenue of pleasure seemed to have been denied us, but today I accidentally discovered how to do it . . .

I found that if I Shift+Click where I want the 'In' point, that works perfectly. The problem was, finding how to mark the 'Out' point. If I used the Shift key, it just moved the 'In' point - untll I reached the halfway point along the clip, and then Shift+Click brought in the 'Out' point to where I clicked.


After some trial and error, I discovered that you can progressively bring in the 'Out' point by Shift+Clicking further and further to the left, until it's where you want it.


Unfortunately, it won't let me select several clips from one file at once, but at least, we're back to the original function, and the bonus is that the previous clip from a file remains highlighted with a thin white line.


Anyone else have any input on this? I'd love to hear if there's a better way to import from Firewire HD.
