Chapter 6. Edit Clips > Extra Bits

Extra Bits

Direct-Trim Clips p. 34

  • One irritating thing about clips edited by Direct Trimming is that sometimes you may want some footage that occurs later in the clip. You could split the clip instead (see page 35), but that doesn’t help you if you’ve already used Direct Trimming. Instead, duplicate the clip by choosing Copy and then Paste from the Edit menu. You can then change the trimming on the duplicate clip to display the other scene.

  • As you drag the edge of a clip, the Monitor displays the frame that corresponds to the cursor’s location.

  • When dragging a clip’s edge, look to the information line below the Timeline to see the clip’s new length. If I know I want a clip to last exactly 10 seconds, for example, that’s where I look; the timecode near the Playhead indicates the time relative to the entire movie.

Split Clips p. 35

  • After splitting a clip, each section still contains all of the original footage. Use Direct Trimming to reveal it if you need to.

  • If no clip is selected and you choose Split Video Clip at Play-head, only the video clip under the Playhead gets split; audio clips not selected remain intact.
