You can change the in and out points for a shot. This is like trimming, except you can only shorten a shot by changing the in or out points.
The in point is the first frame used in a shot. The out point is the last frame. Setting a new in or out point shortens the total length of a shot. The frames that you remove by changing the in or out point become available handles that you can use in later trimming operations.
To change the in or out point for a shot:
- In the Storyboard, select the shot you want to modify, and then scrub to the frame you want to mark as the in point.
- Click Editing, and then click Edit.
The Edit menu appears.
(a) Mark In button (b) Mark Out button
- Click Mark In.
The extra frames are trimmed from the head of the shot.
- Scrub to the frame you want to mark as the out point.
- Click Mark Out.
Extra frames are trimmed from the tail of the shot.
NoteYou must go into one of the Trim modes to add frames back to the head or tail of the shot.
