Chapter 7. Refining the Program > Editing in Trim Mode

Editing in Trim Mode

After you activate trim mode and choose a cut to adjust, you can perform ripple and rolling edits, and switch between the two freely. Preparing for either type of edit involves the same steps.

To prepare to edit in trim mode:

1.
At the bottom of the Timeline window, toggle synch mode on or off:

Synch Mode On— to trim both tracks of linked clips, regardless of the target track (Figure 7.37).

Figure 7.37. Here, synch mode is on, so that linked clips retain their link as they are trimmed.


Synch Mode Off— to trim only clips in selected tracks, and override the link between the audio and video tracks of linked clips. Turn synch mode off to create a split edit (see “Creating Split Edits” later in this chapter).

2.
Cue the current time to or near the cut you want to adjust (Figure 7.38).

Figure 7.38. Cue the current program frame on or near the edit, and activate trim mode by pressing Command-T (Mac) or Control-T (Windows).


3.
In the Monitor window, click the trim mode button , or press - (Mac) or - (Windows).

The Monitor window switches to trim mode.

4.
From the Target video and audio pull-down menus, choose the tracks that you want to affect (Figure 7.39).

Figure 7.39. In trim mode, specify the target tracks that you want to affect. Here, Video 1 is selected.


The following examples trim both the video and audio of linked clips. For details on trimming video and audio separately, see “Creating Split Edits” later in this chapter.
