Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Trimming Clips in the Timeline

Trimming Clips in the Timeline

To perform simple trimming in the timeline, you don’t need to select a special tool. The default tool, the Selection tool, automatically switches to a trimming icon when you position it at a clip edge in the timeline.

By default, trimming is analogous to insert and ripple-delete edits. In a ripple edit, you change the duration of one clip but don’t affect the duration of the adjacent clips. After you ripple-edit the edge of a clip, all subsequent clips shift in the timeline to compensate for the change, in a ripple effect. Therefore, the total length of the sequence changes.
