Chapter 4. Trimming > Methods of Trimming

Methods of Trimming

So far, I’ve only explained how to enter the Trim mode and how to exit it. Now let’s explore the different methods of trimming. By default, you’ll always enter the Trim mode as a dual-side Trim so I’ll cover this method of trimming first.

Dual-Side Trimming

Whenever you enter Trim mode, you’ll be performing a dual-side trim. A dual-side trim adds and subtracts the same amount of frames when you perform a trim. The results of a dual-side trim are that the length of the sequence is unchanged. If you add 20 frames on to the outgoing frame, you’ll subtract 20 frames from the incoming side. Avid Xpress Pro uses the default dual-side trim when you enter Trim mode, in order to maintain sync issues.
