Lesson 7. Advanced Editing Techniques >  Understanding the Trim view

Understanding the Trim view

The Trim view is used to trim individual frames on either side of an edit while viewing those frames so you can view the edit as you work. The Trim view provides the same function as the ripple tool, but it provides finer control and a better view of program material. When you select Trim Mode in the Monitor window menu, the Source and Program views are replaced by two views in which 1, 3, or 5 frames of adjacent clips are displayed. Being able to see frames on either side of the edit enables you to precisely trim each clip. You can also perform a rolling edit in the Trim view. This view is useful for fine-tuning the edit between two clips in which the action must match or timing is critical.


The Trim view provides a frame-by-frame ripple edit function and a view of each clip at the edit point (A).
