GOM Mix Max's basic shortcut keys are similar to other programs. 



Let me introduce some of the important ones here. 


Before using the keys, of course you have to create a project first. 


Then, to load specific media (video/images) onto the timeline, simply press Ctrl+I


Do you want to duplicate a single clip? Press Ctrl+D, and each time you press it, it will duplicate. Give it a try! 


After creating all your videos, try pressing Ctrl+E to export them as media (videos). 


(* If you've tried video editing with any other programs, you might be familiar with Ctrl+M, so don't get confused!) 



So far, these are the most commonly used general shortcut keys.

And use Shift+V to add video tracks and Shift+A for audio tracks.  


Now you don’t have to right-click at all!

Transition property editing: Alt + C (for clip transition) or Alt + T (for track transition).
