As you get more experienced using Adobe Premiere Pro, you'll want to leverage some of the other tools that are available to you, and one of these is the Trim Monitor window. Now, what this does is it allows you a little more fine control when cutting between one clip and another clip, so for instance, if I double-click between this edit point. And I want to play it first because you'll see there's a repeat of action. >> From fresh, made it from scratch and gluten free and I think because made that dough from fresh.
>> So, I want to trim that. Now, I could trim it down here, but let me show you what happens when I double-click. I actually open up this Trim Monitor window and it allows me to do either a roll edit by clicking between the two clips. So, watch what happens when I just move my mouse left and right. And then, as soon as I let go on the cut point, it moves it to a new location. Or if I click on just one side, I can do a ripple trim delete, or a ripple trim add, to my video. So, in this case, I want to remove the redundancy of me saying it in both the close up and the wide shot.
>> So, I'll simply click on the right side and drag to the right until I see Vanessa start responding. Now, I can step back here in my timeline and see how that worked. >> I think because we made that dough from fresh, we made it from scratch. >> It really gives it that wonderful home. >> So, very easy to use the Trim Monitor window to be able to make find edits. Now, I'm going to step inside just one more time. I can also use these little buttons here to edit by one or five frames.
Some really fine tuning of my edit. And if, I want to jump from edit to edit point, I can simply make the edit I want and then use the up and down arrow keys to jump to the next point, and the next point, and the next point. Now, if you're migrating from another editing system and you want even more information about your clips and a lot more control, you can actually go to the drop-down window and open up a Trim Monitor window that has a lot more detail. It's pretty much the same as we just saw. But it allows us a little more flexibility in seeing what handles we have in the clip, as well as controlling what we're going to edit in reference to video and audio.
And for those who have come from another editing system, Premiere Pro provides dynamic trimming using the J, K, and L keys. So, whether you use the more complex Trim Monitor from the drop-down window or the simplified interface by double-clicking on an edit point, you'll be able to refine your edit with true precision.
