    I ignore the picture to get the right sound.

    Try this: close your eyes and listen-you can prolly tell what’s going on.

    Now, turn off yer speakers and watch…What’s happening?

    I rest my case.

    Much more useful for quick sound editing:

    -Default transitions: 2 frames
    -Apply default transition: highlight the cut, then Shift-D (none of this 3-key nonsense) applies the default.
    -map the Timeline Zoom function to Shift-Z (this is the FCP7 default, which I prefer to PPro’s Backslash default). Now you can quickly shrink the timeline, select the next edit, then Zoom in to work.

    And this setup gives both of your hands something to do (left is keyboarding while the right is mousing/selecting). The 2f dissolve (and it’s one frame cousin) is a godsend for smoothing those too-tight edits producers will ALWAYS find in a transcript, and works well for upcutting music as well.
