Splitting Clips

Sometimes you need to cut a clip in the timeline into two or more pieces. You may want to apply an effect to one part of a shot but not to another, for example. When you split a clip, each piece becomes an independent program clip or clip instance. When you split a linked clip, both the video and audio tracks are split.

To split a clip with the razor:

1.
In the toolbox of the Timeline window, select the razor tool (Figure 6.69).

Figure 6.69. In the toolbox of the Timeline window, select the razor tool.


2.
Click a clip in the timeline at the point where you want to split it (Figure 6.70).

Figure 6.70. Click a clip in the timeline at the point where you want to split it. Here, the razor is positioned at marker #1 in the clip.


The clip is split into two individual clips at that point (Figure 6.71).
