Tip #140: What’s the Minimum Duration of a Clip?
Durations are always measured in frames and displayed using timecode.
A “duration” is the number of frames between the In and Out of a clip; or the entire clip if no In or Out is set. In Premiere Pro, the In point and Out points specify all durations in any panel. So, how are durations determined?
- The In INCLUDES the frame it is parked on.
- The Out EXCLUDES the frame it is parked on.
For example, setting the In point and Out point to the same frame results in a clip with a duration of one frame. In other words, Premiere requires a minimum duration of one frame.
