Building a sequence is only the first step. Once you see how all the clips in the sequence fit together, you will want to refine some of your edit points. There are two ways to approach this. You can trim one edit point at a time, making a clip longer or shorter. This may affect the length of the sequence as a whole. Or you can trim two edit points at the same time, one compensating in length for the other. This will not change the length of the sequence. In this lesson, you will work with different ways to trim just one edit point at a time to fine tune the length or timing of your sequence.
