Digital video is a medium that is now available to almost everyone. It can be captured on anything from a mobile phone to a high-definition camera, and published anywhere from YouTube to Blu-ray discs. In Premiere Elements 4 Essential Training, Adobe Certified Instructor Chad Perkins explores all the video editing capabilities of Premiere Elements 4. Chad starts with a real-world sample project, then covers techniques for importing and editing video; and adding effects, transitions, and animation. He concludes with a final project incorporating all the steps, including exporting and posting. Exercise files accompany the course.
In this movie we're also going to be using the Trimming project found in the Chapter 4 folder of the exercise files and here we're going to be talking about trimming, but in the Timeline. So let's go ahead and jump on over to the Timeline. This is actually extremely simple, although it does look more complex, there is just a little bit more visually going on here. It actually works almost exactly the same way as does the Sceneline. If you want to trim the in point of a clip, just go to the beginning of the clip and your cursor will change to this icon, that's the Trim icon.
All you have to do is just click and drag to the right, and you'll notice the same thing happens with this Time Indicator and in the Monitor panel as does when you're trim in the Sceneline. You want to trim the out point of a clip, go the end, you'll get the Trim icon and just click and drag to the left to trim it inwards. Same thing. And again, just as with the Sceneline, you can go back to the in point or the out point and you can click and drag and extend back the footage that you have trimmed. It's no lie, folks. It's just that easy.
