Options for Setting Sequence In and Out Points
You have several options when setting sequence In and Out points. Each choice has
certain ramifications, so make sure you understand the outcome when setting your
In and Out points.
Â Setting no In or Out points: When no edit points are set, the playhead position is
considered the In point. The clip is placed at the playhead position in the Timeline.
Â Setting only an In point: When an In point is set, that point determines where the
source clip’s In point is placed in your sequence. The sequence Out point is calculated
based on the Out point of the source clip.
Â Setting only an Out point: When an Out point is set, that point determines where the
source clip’s Out point is placed in your sequence. The In point is determined by one
of the following:
Â Sequence playhead: If the position of the playhead is before the sequence Out
point, the playhead is considered to be the sequence In point of the edit.
Â Clip In point: If the sequence playhead is after the sequence Out point, the
sequence In point is determined by the source clip In point.
Â Sequence start: If the position of the playhead is after the sequence Out point, and
neither the source clip nor the sequence has In points, the start of the sequence
determines the sequence In point of the edit.
Setting Edit Points for Clips and Sequences
Â Setting both In and Out points: If both points are set in the sequence, the edit is
restricted to the duration between the sequence In and Out points, regardless of the
duration set in the source clip.
