Chapter 25. Regions > Shortening Regions I

25.6. Shortening Regions I

You don't have to use Apple's canned loops in their entirety. By shortening a region from its right end, you can isolate only a favorite first portion of it.

Shortening a region is simple enough: Drag the end inward, as detailed at bottom in Figure 25-4. You'll know you've grabbed the right spot when the cursor changes to a vertical bar with a rightward arrow. (Contrast with the curly cursor that appears when you make a loop repeat.) If you've used iMovie, this movement should feel distinctly familiar. It's exactly the same cropping motion you can use on clips in the Movie Track.
