Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Four-Point Editing

Four-Point Editing

As you have seen, every edit uses four points, but you need to set only three of them. Premiere always figures out the missing variable to balance out the editing equation. Actively marking all four points forces Premiere to balance the equation in another way. If the source duration differs from the program duration, Premiere asks whether you want to shorten the source clip (alter its out point) or change the speed of the source clip to fit the program duration.

Typically, you use a four-point edit to change the speed of the source to match a defined area of the program. This technique is frequently called fit to fill, because you fit, or change, the duration of the source to fill the duration you specified in the program.
