Swap Clips is a useful automation feature that can help you quickly swap clips in Premiere Pro. This automation allows you to swap the clip at the player head with the clip to its left or right, as specified by the Direction argument. Note that the two clips in question must be on the same track for this automation to work.
By assigning shortcuts to Swap Clips, you can work more efficiently and save time on repetitive tasks. For example, if you want to swap the clip at the player head with the clip to its left, you can assign the Left Direction to a keyboard shortcut, such as Ctrl + Shift + Left Arrow. Similarly, if you want to swap the clip to the right, you can assign the Right Direction to a keyboard shortcut, such as Ctrl + Shift + Right Arrow.
Using Swap Clips can streamline your workflow and improve your productivity, especially if you frequently need to swap clips in your video editing projects. It’s a simple but effective tool that can save you time and help you work more efficiently.
