Key Insights

  • šŸ”„ Sliding segments in Flame is a useful technique to move segments along the sequence while maintaining connectivity with corresponding segments, avoiding gaps in the edit.
  • šŸ“½ Using the trim view in slide mode provides a clear visualization of the selected segment and its surrounding segments, allowing for precise adjustments.
  • šŸ”„ When sliding segments with ripple on, only the outgoing length of the previous segment is affected, while all other segments after it are pushed down, resulting in a longer or shorter sequence.
  • šŸ”¢ Sliding segments can be done numerically by using buttons to slide forward or backward by one or five frames, or by entering a specific frame number on a full-size keyboard. āÆ During playback, segments can be slid in real-time using the comma and full stop keystrokes to move one frame in either direction.
  • šŸ”€ Slide cuts, a less commonly used slide mode, locks the source footage to the sequence's time code, moving the footage according to the slide and can be used in specific situations. ā© Slide keyframes is a highly useful slide mode that allows for adjustments to keyframed animation within a timelinefx without the need to access an animation editor.

welcome to your flame fundamentals training the final editorial mode you'll learn about is sliding this is when you take a segment and physically slide it along the sequence to change its position so you'll cover the basics of sliding sliding with the trim view numerical sliding interactive sliding and we'll briefly discuss slide cuts and slide key...

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.
