Join Aaron F. Ross for an in-depth discussion in this video Ripple editing and stretching time, part of Cinematography: Maya.
…When trimming a shot in the sequencer, remember we don't want to create gaps.…And as we saw previously, we can always…use the Remove Shot Gaps command, but there's…also a mode called Ripple Edit also in the Edit menu here, and I've enabled that.…And when it's on, we will automatically heal up any gaps between shots.…For example, if I want to change the duration of shot number one,…I can click on its end out point here, and click and drag.…And you'll see as I shorten that shot, the other…shots ripple forward in order to take up the gap.…
If I extend it, likewise, same thing.…So that's very useful.…I want to point out that it doesn't work as expected,…however, if you trim the beginning point of a shot.…It'll actually cause time to move…backwards here.…So that's kind of problematic because now shot…number 1 is beginning at frame negative 32.…So when you use ripple mode, I would recommend that…you only edit the endpoints and not the start points.…Alright, move that back until it's back where it was.…
There's another cool thing you can do in…
