Tip #526: Top and Tail Trimming
It seems I’ve gotten lazy and always trim my clips by dragging the In or the Out. However, there is a much faster way to trim the top or tail of a clip:
- Put the playhead where you want to move the In and type: Option + [
- Put the playhead where you want to move the Out and type: Option + ]
- Using the Range tool (or set an In and Out) trim to the selected range, type: Option +
You can use the Skimmer instead of the playhead, but I’ve found the playhead to be better for trimming because it is less easy to jiggle out of position.
