I know clip duration is here somewhere
on Aug 11, 2018 at 9:41:34 pm

When a trimmed clip is on on the timeline, how do I see out how long it is? I know there must be a preference, or a hidden window, or a key command that tells me the length of a selected clip...right? And yes, I could figure it out from the timecode, but I am not the best at arithmetic.
So, apart from grabbing the end of the clip and pulling, where do I find the duration of a trimmed clip?

Thanks

You can see clip duration with the "I" button on the Color page (far right just under the thumbnails).

Aii these NLEs. There's always an obscure button somewhere.

Isn't that the total length of the clip? I was playing with that after reading the OP's question, and no matter how short or long I made the clip on the timeline, the duration stayed the same when I clicked the "I" button.

I think if you "X" to mark the clip, the in/out duration is displayed above the monitor....isn't it?

"I think if you "X" to mark the clip..."

Sorry, Glenn, I'm not following you. I see the duration in the "info" box in the lower right, but as I said, it doesn't change when I lengthen or shorten the clip so I'm assuming it's showing the length of the entire, untrimmed clip.

You could press CMD-D (or I guess ctrl-D on windows) to bring up the clip duration dialog box. It's there to change the duration, but also it shows it.
