Add transform effect to selected image and movie strips. Auto centers images
For each strip in the selection:
- Filters the selection down to image and movie strips
- Centers the pivot point of image strips
- Adds a transform effect and sets it to ALPHA_OVER
Align two similar audios
Attempt alignment between the selected audio strip to the active audio strip. The better the correlation, the better the result.
This operator requires ffmpeg and scipy to work. Audio must be converted to WAV data prior to analyzing, so longer strips may take longer to align. To mitigate this issue, analysis will be limited to the first 15 minutes of audio at most.
Channel OffsetMove selected strip to the nearest open channel above/down
|Alt ↑||Move to Open Channel Above|
|Alt ↓||Move to Open Channel Below|
Remove space between strips
Concatenates selected strips in a channel, i.e. removes the gap between them. If a single strip is selected, either the next strip in the channel will be concatenated, or all strips in the channel will be concatenated depending on which shortcut is used.
|C||Concatenate selected strips in channel, or concatenate & select next strip in channel if only 1 strip selected|
|Shift C||Concatenate all strips in selected channels|
|Alt C||Concatenate selected strips in channel towards the right, or concatenate and select the previous strip in the channel if only 1 strip selected|
|Alt Shift C||Shift Alt C; Concatenate all strips in channel towards the right|

Copy Selected Sequences
Copy/cut strips without offset from current time indicator
Copies the selected sequences without frame offset and optionally deletes the selection to give a cut to clipboard effect. This operator overrides the default Blender copy method which includes cursor offset when pasting, which is atypical of copy/paste methods.
|Ctrl C||Copy Selected Strips|
|Ctrl X||Cut Selected Strips|
Adds cross fade between selected sequence and the closest sequence to its right
Based on the active strip, finds the closest next sequence of a similar type, moves it so it overlaps the active strip, and adds a gamma cross effect between them. Works with MOVIE, IMAGE and META strips
|Ctrl Alt C||Add Crossfade|
Adjust the location of the crossfade between 2 strips
Selects the handles of both inputs of a crossfade strip’s input and calls the grab operator. Allows you to quickly change the location of a fade transition between two strips.
Crossfade RemoveDelete a crossfade strip and moves the handles of the input strips to form a cut again
Delete DirectDelete without confirmation. Replaces default Blender setting
Deselect All Strips Left Or RightDeselects all the strips at the left or right of the time cursor, based on the position of the mouse
|Alt Q||Deselect all strips to the left of the time cursor|
|Alt E||Deselect all strips to the right of the time cursor|
Deselect Handles And GrabDeselect the handles of all selected strips and call the Sequence Slide operator
Duplicate MoveAuto selects the strip under the mouse if nothing is selected, and calls Blender’s Duplicate Move function
|Shift D||Duplicate Move|
Adds or updates a fade animation for either visual or audio strips.
- In, Out, In and Out create a fade animation of the given duration from the start of the sequence, to the end of the sequence, or on boths sides
- From playhead: the fade animation goes from the start of sequences under the playhead to the playhead
- To playhead: the fade animation goes from the playhead to the end of sequences under the playhead
By default, the duration of the fade is 1 second.
|Alt F||Fade Out|
|Ctrl F||Fade In|

Grab and move sequences. Extends Blender’s built-in grab tool
Grab and move sequences. If you have no strips selected, it automatically finds the strip closest to the mouse and selects it. If you only select one or multiple crossfades, selects the handles on either side of the crossfades before moving sequences, using POWER_SEQUENCER_OT_crossfade_edit
Grab Closest Cut
Grab the handles that form the closest cut
Selects and grabs the strip handle or cut closest to the mouse cursor. Hover near a cut and fire this tool to slide it.
|Alt Shift G||Grab closest handle or cut|
Grab Sequence Handles
Grabs the sequence’s handle based on the mouse position

Jump Time Offset
Jump forward or backward in time
Move the time cursor forward or backward, using a duration in seconds.
The equivalent tool in Blender only works with frames, meaning the jump will be different if your project’s framerate is different. This tool fixes that issue.
|Shift →||Jump Forward|
|Shift ←||Jump Backward|
Jump To Cut
Jump to next/previous cut
Jump to the next or the previous cut in the edit. Unlike Blender’s default tool, also works during playback.
|↑||Jump to next cut or keyframe|
|↓||Jump to previous cut or keyframe|
