Slip and slide changes a shot's position in the edit sequence, as well as the head and tail frames. The media of the element stays at the same position in the sequence, but the location of the element changes.
NoteSlipping and sliding can only occur if the element has available handles.
To slip and slide an element:
- Click Trim.
This enables the Trim mode.
- Position the cursor on the middle of the element that you want to slip & slide.
The slip & slide cursor appears.
- Click and drag the element right or left.
Slip & Slide Ripple Mode
There are three types of Ripple mode when you slip and slide.
- Ripple Off
With Ripple Off, only the first and last shot of the Timeline and any shot surrounded by a gap, can slip and slide. The slip & slide operation adds a gap and changes the length of the edit sequence.
- Ripple Start
The slip & slide operation moves in time the element located before the trimmed element and inserts a gap after the slip & slide element.
- Ripple End
The slip and slide operation moves in time the element located after the trimmed element and inserts a gap before the slip & slide element.
