Video Editing

Use top icon immediately after help menu, change mode to 'video editing'

G to grab and move Hold ctrl to snap K to razor at current time

Can setup static file browser, drag drop single clips to current time

Can drag multiple clips to timeline, but from modal (ie shift-a) only

Issue with maya UI mode, change prefs -> input -> animation -> change frame to left mouse (the default of 'action mouse' won't scrub)

Set overall timeline length in properties

Text edit strip quick, but no font styles, hmm
