Quick way to change clip length?
on Sep 16, 2011 at 4:21:44 pm

I've produce a load of short clips for my client (for the web). Although he saw the early clips, he now thinks the text intro is too long.

I've added in the text block (White text, black background) between two slugs, with a cross fade on either side so the White text fades in and fades out then the clip starts.

Rather the fussing around with deleting the transition and then clicking and dragging the clip to resize there a quicker way?

I want to half the length the text shows up for?

I'd suggest trimming it. While you could play fancy retiming games, trimming it will work/look best.
