What is Ctrl + L in Premiere Pro?

 Ctrl + L is a keyboard shortcut in Adobe Premiere Pro that links selected clips or items. Linking clips or items allows you to edit them simultaneously. For example, if you link two clips together, any edits you make to one clip, such as trimming or applying effects, will also be applied to the other clip.

How to link clips or items with Ctrl + L

  1. Select the clips or items you want to link.
  2. Press Ctrl + L (Windows) or Cmd + L (macOS).
  3. The clips or items will be linked and will appear together in the Timeline panel.

What happens when clips or items are linked

When clips or items are linked, they will behave as a single unit in the Timeline panel. You can move, resize, and apply effects to linked clips or items just as you would with a single clip or item. Any edits you make to one linked clip or item will also be applied to the other linked clips or items.

Benefits of linking clips or items

There are several benefits to linking clips or items in Premiere Pro:

  • Edit multiple clips simultaneously: Linking clips allows you to edit multiple clips simultaneously, which can save you time and effort. For example, if you have multiple takes of the same scene, you can link them together and then apply the same edits to all of them at once.
  • Keep clips synchronized: Linking clips can help you keep clips synchronized with each other. For example, if you have two clips of a person speaking, you can link them together to make sure that their lips are always in sync with the audio.
  • Create complex sequences: Linking clips can be used to create complex sequences. For example, you can link multiple clips together to create a montage or a music video.

Overall, Ctrl + L is a versatile keyboard shortcut that allows you to quickly link clips or items in Premiere Pro. This can be useful for editing multiple clips simultaneously, keeping clips synchronized, and creating complex sequences.
