Lesson 7. Advanced Editing Techniques > Understanding the slide and slip tools

Understanding the slide and slip tools

Premiere provides two tools for adjusting a clip in the Timeline while preserving its duration: the slide tool and the slip tool.

Slide tool Adjusts the duration of the two clips adjacent to the target clip, while preserving the In and Out points of the clip under the tool icon. This tool also preserves the duration of the project. You can think of this as a rolling edit with a clip between the two clips being trimmed. The slide tool also preserves the duration of the clip under the tool icon. As you drag, the location of the clip moves left or right in the Timeline. This tool can be used only when (and to the extent that) the adjacent clips have been trimmed so that extra frames are available in those clips.
