Hold Shift and click to select contiguous clips. For example, to select three contiguous clips, click the first clip, then hold Shift and click the third clip. All three clips are selected.
Hold Command/Control and click to select discontiguous clips. Hold Command/Control and click a selected clip to deselect it.
Click and drag on an empty area in the Clips view to draw a selection rectangle. This selects all clips that intersect the rectangle. Hold down Shift while drawing the selection rectangle to add clips to the current selection.
You can also select clips with the Timeline Playhead. Right-click the Timeline Playhead on the timeline above the Clips view and choose a selection option.
