One sneaky way of hiding editing patents is to put them inside a patent for consumer editing UI.

Although the first few pages of a recently awarded Apple patent (applied for in 2010) seems to be talking about iMovie, if you stick with it, you'll find concepts such as skimming, keyword tagging for clips and parts of clips as well as features that would help implement dynamic trimming.

[Alex Gollner] "as well as features that would help implement dynamic trimming."

That would be kind of cool. I'd prefer a "hot key" to switching modes...

"The patent includes a storyboard that shows an element of dyamic trimming. Here is an excerpt from the text:

During playback, a playhead moves along the media clips in the sequence. Before the playhead reaches the end of the media clip, the user can invoke a command that will cause the media clip to continue playing content from its source file after the current out-point is reached. When the playhead reaches a location in the media clip source at which the user wants to set a new out-point for the media clip, the user can invoke a command that will cause the frame at that location to be set as the new out-point for the media clip."

Doesn't this describe the precision editor to some degree? It doesn't quite work the way as described, but it's really close. You have to be in clip skim mode with with precision editor open.
