    Trim Editing Multiple Edit Points

    Hello,

    Two questions.

    1. How do I select two edit points with a double-roller like this

     

    Right now, only ONE of them is selected, and I can trim it to the left or right perfectly. But what I need is to select the OTHER edit point to teh RIGHT of the two purple vertical lines, and them trim BOTH of them at the same time either left or right. In Premiere Pro this is super easy, just lasso the two and it highlights it, but when I do that in the Avid, I get this weird funky thing:

    Can someone help me?

    Thank you

    What you want is to do a slip edit. Hold down the alt key and drag a lasso right-to left (so starting at the end point and ending at the clip start point). You'll now enter trim mode. Hover over the inside of the start or end points and drag.

    Actually, on closer inspection, you had already entered slip trim mode.

    Hi Dave,

    I tried that but Avid did nothing.  Am I doing something wrong?

    Also I don't want to slip, i want to trim both start and end points to the left or right, without affecting the sync. If I slip, it will cause it to go out of sync.

    A slip edit is what you use to not have things go out of sync. It trims the start and end points in place.

    I did a quick look from slip trim, and found a quickie video that someone posted to youtube:

    See if that helps.

    Re: Trim Editing Multiple Edit Points

    OK i got the wrong icon, but alas, this is acutally not what I wanted. oyyy... i don't want to slip and slide lol, i want to just do a trim edit of both POINTS WITHOUT losing sync in a multi-cam config

     

    here 's what i want to do

     

    Cam 1 / Cam 2 / Cam 1

    I want to move the top of Cam 2 to the left and the tail of cam 2 to the left at teh SAME time without doing it twice.

    Can this be done in trim mode. So basically select TWO purple vertical lines and move them

    Re: Trim Editing Multiple Edit Points

    Hi DStone,

    Apparently I found a trick to make it work, very weird.

    If I have two add edits on the same clip, add transitions, then select the transitions and DELETE them, presto! I now have two (2) vertical lines for two add edits and i can move them around the timeline. Is this by design? A bug?
