Questions & Answers

Q: How does sliding differ from dragging a segment in select mode?

When dragging a segment in select mode, the segment loses its connectivity with surrounding segments, potentially creating gaps in the sequence. Sliding, on the other hand, maintains this connectivity and trims the surrounding segments automatically.

Q: What is the role of ripple when sliding segments?

When ripple is on, only the outgoing length of the previous segment is affected, pushing down all subsequent segments. If ripple is off, both the outgoing and incoming segments adjust to accommodate the slide.

Q: How can editors slide segments numerically?

Editors can use buttons to slide forward or backward by one or five frames. They can also enter a specific frame number using a full-size keyboard, or type "-10" while holding Ctrl and Option to slide the segment back by 10 frames.

Q: What are the two additional slide modes mentioned?

The first one is slide cuts, which locks the source footage to the sequence's time code and does not move with the slide. The second one is slide keyframes, which allows adjusting keyframed animation in a timeline without entering the animation editor.

Summary & Key Takeaways

  • Sliding is a technique used to move segments along the sequence while keeping the connectivity of related segments intact.

  • Using the trim view in slide mode allows editors to view and adjust the segments' starting frames without changing the first and last frames of the segment.

  • Numerical sliding, using keyboard shortcuts or the trim calculator, provides precise control over the slide offset.
