Trim to blue line?

Hi, I'm new to Avid from FCP 7. How can I 'trim to the blue line' like I can with FCP?

Thanks!

Lee

It's called Extend, and there's a button for it that looks sort of like this

However, I think you will need to have a Mark In or Mark Put placed, so that MC knows in which direction you want to trim the cut.

To trim an edit to the left: Mark an IN point at the frame you want to trim to, then press "extend". Ensure the correct tracks are activated.
To trim an edit to the right: Mark an OUT point and do the same.

LEFT = IN POINT
RIGHT = OUT POINT

hope that makes sense

Also, not exactly the same, but very worth looking into: check out "Top" and "Tail" in the user manual. This is a feature that I use ALL the time for quick trims to the heads and tails of shots. It's sort of the reverse of what extend does, ie: if trims from the blue bar to the end head or the tail of the clip.

I believe it's detailed on page 722 of the currently supplied PDF documentation.

Thank You Sir! This IS, overall, more of what I was looking for and to do. I enjoy Avid but I just need to learn the 'Avid way' some more.

I'm not English but I'll still say Brilliant thanks to your tip.

Thanks Again Sir!!!

Lee.
