Chapter 7. Editing in the Timeline > Deleting Clips and Gaps from the Timeline

Deleting Clips and Gaps from the Timeline

Whatever you can select, you can delete. That includes both clips and gaps between clips. Delete commands work much like the lift and extract edits you learned about in Chapter 6. When you delete a clip, the result is like a lift edit, leaving an empty space behind and leaving surrounding clips unaffected. The result of a Ripple Delete command is comparable to an extract edit. Ripple deleting a clip removes the clip and closes the gap, shifting all subsequent clips back in time by the duration of the clip. You can also select and ripple delete a gap between clips. However, you can't select a gap and a clip simultaneously. Also, the Ripple Delete command always shifts clips in all tracks. To limit the ripple effect to the tracks containing the deleted clip, you'll need to lock the other tracks or use a variation of an extract edit, explained in Chapter 6.
