Chapter 7. Refining the Program > Using Edge Viewing

Using Edge Viewing

The left edge of a clip in the timeline is the in point, or head; the right edge is the out point, or tail. In the sections that follow, you’ll learn to use various tools to trim a clip’s edges directly in the timeline. Though the positions of the edges give you an idea of where a clip starts and ends in the timeline, they can’t show you what the frame actually looks like. To see the edge frames in the program view as you trim, activate edge viewing. If you don’t need to see the edge frame as you trim, turn edge viewing off to spare Premiere the work of updating the program view.

To view edges:

  • At the bottom of the timeline, click the edge view button to toggle edge viewing on and off:

    Edge View On— to view the edge (in or out point) in the program view of the Monitor window as you trim it (Figure 7.3).

    Figure 7.3. Turn edge viewing on to see the edge in the program view as you trim.

    Edge View Off— to disable the display of the edge frame as you trim (Figure 7.4).

    Figure 7.4. Turn edge viewing off to prevent the program view from displaying the trimmed edge.
