My friend Zack McTee shared this workflow for pulling selects with me awhile back and now has graciously made it available to the public. This has made pulling selects in Premiere so much faster for me when I’m editing. Just like a recipe for cooking you can adjust this to your personal preferences. I tweaked this slightly but now I am flying.
My tweak: Since “H’ is to the left of “J” and I never use the hand tool I mapped the Overwrite shortcut to “H”. Now I can drink coffee and pull selects at the exact same time.
