Hi,

I'm regularly breaking down interviews into favourites , I hate to take my hands off the keyboard but find myself pressing F to favourite, then having to mouse click the star to name it.. ( I press enter rather than double click to activate the name field.. ) Is there a way to do it with just keyboard?

You have to do this in list mode. Toggle between filmstrip mode and list mode with OPT+CMD+2.

In list mode you must first have all disclosure triangles opened up. To do this OPT+click on the top-level one. I don't know a shortcut for that.

Once opened, just use up/down arrow keys to go to prev/next clips. Mark the range with I and O. Then press TAB twice to rename the favorite.

A totally different way is don't use favorites but use keywords tied to specific shortcut keys. This can be done in filmstrip mode. For a complete description see MacBreak Studio #223 "Warp Speed Keywording":

TAB twice, that's the secret.. thank you so much :)
You may know this already but it's possible to open all the disclosure triangles by hitting apple A ( select all ), then the right arrow opens everything, left closes...
