Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Trimming with the JKL technique, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…There's one more, keyboard shortcut I'd really like to share with you,…that a lot of editors miss unless they come from,…perhaps, another system like Avid Media Composer, that has had it for a long time.…And that's JKL trimming.…Now, in Adobe Speak, this is referred to as dynamic trimming.…I suppose because they wanted to differentiate the feature from,…the Avid Media Composer version.…But let's take a look at how it works.…Instead of single clicking to add a trim handle to the end of this clip, instead,…I'm going to double-click.…
And when I double-click, this is going to open up the, trim monitor mode.…I'm now seeing, the end of the clip on the left of the cut and…the beginning of the clip on the right of the cut.…Now, I can click and drag here.…Let me double click again.…I can click and drag up in the, program monitor.…And I like this mode, because you get a nice big area to click on.…Again, instead of having this rather fiddly item on the timeline,…you can click anywhere in this monitor, you can switch to the other side of…
In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
