Cutting Clips in the Timeline

Each time you cut a clip in your sequence, it is split into two clips. You can make cuts
with the Razor Blade tool, or you can make cuts during playback by pressing Control-V.

Rough Editing

 Razor Blade: Adds an edit point to a sequence clip by cutting a single clip item, along

with any clip items linked to it in the Timeline, into two pieces. This edit point is
added at the frame of the clip item in the Timeline that you click.

This can be useful for quickly rearranging pieces of your sequence, for deleting a
section of a clip, for applying an effect to a specific part of a clip, or for moving a
piece of a clip to the same location on another track


The Razor Blade tool lets
you cut a clip item into
two pieces.
