Solid stuff. Also, I have to disagree with reel2reel. While assuming the user knows everything in the world would definitely make for a shorter tutorial, it would lower it's appeal to only the snobby know-it-all editors. I think mentioning shortcuts when they come up is definitely the right thing to do. A good tutorial that does that teaches more than just the subject of the tutorial.

Again, good job.

I registered just to reply to Reel2Reels thoughtless comment. The tutorials that are provided here are a wonderful learning tool for all, I'm sure; both for "newbies" "noobs" (like myself,) or even the seasoned snob who finds the tutorial too wordy. Disregard him please, and keep doing what you do. I personally thank you.

These tutorials would be much better if they weren't so dumbed down. If a user doesn't know how to shift-i or duplicate a clip, then maybe they should be taking other tutorials. This one could've been a third the length and I've already lost interest when all these newbie tips are cluttering up the flow.

IMO.
