You can enter timecode values directly in the In, Out, and Dur fields to set in and out points for clip input and output. However, there are other methods of setting the in and out points that are more convenient if you are scrubbing the tape in the VTR to locate reference frames for clip input and output. For example, if you output a clip to overwrite a segment on a tape, you scrub the tape to locate the frame that matches the first frame of the clip you are outputting.
You can also enter in and out points, as well as duration values based on the timecode value of a clip selected for input. Simply click Input Clip, then while holding down the left Ctrl key, select a clip and a destination reel.
Besides the described methods of entering timecodes in the In, Out, and Dur fields, you can modify clip in and out points or cue the VTR to these points using the following controls on the right side of the Input or Output menu.
