Joining Through Edits (Splicing Cut Clips Back Together)
Whenever you cut a clip item with the razor blade tool, the clip item is split into two
pieces separated by a through edit. You can’t see a through edit when you play back

two red triangles above and below through edits—to see them in the Timeline. You
can join through edits at any time, splicing the separated clip items back into a single
