I had no idea this existed; Question:

I tired this technicque onthe timeline and it put a RED Border either on Left or Right (Depending on what key I selected of course) and when hitting delete it removed the same Event no matter which side.

I wanted to:

S split the Event
Select a Key for LEFT or RIGHT

and have the option of either deleting LEFT of the SPLIT or RIGHT of the SPLIT

Am I missing something here? I am trying to understand.

The "[" and "]" keys set the "editing mode" - that's the reason you saw the red outlines.

When you press "S", it splits and the right side is automatically selected. When you then press "[", it puts the clip on the right side into "edit mode". Pressing "[" again puts next event to the left (i.e. the event to the left of the split) into edit mode - therefore selecting it. That's why this procedure will work.

Alternately, the 7 key on the numpad will also do the same as "[". Do a search in the help file to find out more about editing with the numberpad. You can do all sorts of editing using only the numberpad.

Here is another wish: adopt Photoshop's filter model. Let each filter have its own opacity, mask, and blend mode.

I'm kinda unclear on what you mean: You mean like the ability to fade filters (Edit/Fade)?

Close...I am talking about adjustment layers (speaking of which, there are rumors that the next version is going to have all filters as adjustment layers.)
