TimeThis lesson takes approximately 75 minutes to complete.
GoalsTrim two edit points at the same time
 Slip In and Out points
 Roll edit points
 Slide clip placement
 Extend edit points
 Work with the Trim Edit window


As you have just learned, trimming a single In point or Out point changes the length of a clip and may therefore change the length of a sequence. But there are several ways to adjust clips in the Timeline without changing clip or sequence length. Once your sequence duration is set, there are tools that allow you to finesse the actual content of each clip by adjusting two edit points at the same time, each one compensating for the other in duration. To do this, you will use the Slip, Roll, and Slide tools.
