Hello everybody,
I can't find why this is happening.
I place the playhead exactly where I want to trim the clip, and when I hit Q or W, it cuts more frames than I want it to.
Do you know why this could happen? I have tried clips with different fps, and different sequence settings, but it's the same.
I attach 2 images of the before and after so that I can show you better.
Please, it's driving me a little crazy. I hope you can help me out.
Thank you very much in advance.

Try this: position the timeline cursor where you want the cut to occur. Use the "c" keyboard shortcut to call up the cutting tool. It snaps to the timeline cursor position. You can also trim the clip, and it will snap to the timeline cursor position.

Thank you for answering Dave. Yes, I always edit this way. I cut with the razor (I activate it pressing c) but then to make it really fast I place the timeline cursor ahead where I want the next trim to occur, and when I hit Q, instead of cutting there, it cuts some more frames ahead. And this didn't happen before. Like I showed with the pictures, instead of acting just where I have the timeline cursor, it cuts some more frames. It's really annoying because the editing is much less precise and I have to reedit... :(

Let me guess: you use CC 2017. I advise going back to CC 2015. CC 2017 has problems.
