Insert Time Function (Insert Gap)
Add a feature called "Insert Time" or "Insert Gap"
It would work like this:
Set IN & OUT points in the timeline
Use Insert Time/Gap Function
Everything in the sequence from the IN point onward gets shifted down the timeline to the OUT point, leaving an empty gap in its place
Does not affect tracks with sync lock disabled
Obeys the preference "Shift clips that overlap trim point during ripple trimming" so that we can control if overlapping clips are moved or not
IN/OUT range stays selected afterward

Love this idea. I'd also love a preference for a default gap length so that, say, 5 second gaps could be added with a single shortcut without needing to set in/our points. Basically Avid's 'add filler' shortcut.

Thanks for this, appreciate the 'rules' approach to the request.
