Slipping and Sliding Clips in the Sequence

Slipping and sliding clips contained in your sequence are very powerful ways to trim their edit points. In both cases, you trim two edit points at the same time without changing the sequence's duration. Slipping changes the frames used within one clip without changing the clip's duration. Sliding changes the edit points on both sides of the clip at the same time but does not change the frames used in the selected clip—nor does it change the clip's duration. Rather, it changes the duration of the clips before and after it, adding and subtracting frames to and from them at the same time, maintaining the duration of the sequence itself. In neither case can you slip or slide a frame farther than over the clips on either side of it.

For example, slipping can be used when a certain duration is best but the original footage you put in the sequence ends in the wrong place. If you slip the footage to the left until you get to the “right” frames, you are usually done with the trim you need to do.
