Join Through Edits

A through edit is defined as two adjacent clips from the same continuous piece of a
media file. The timecode numbers of the first clip’s Out point and the second clip’s In
point are one frame apart. Unless you have a specific reason for keeping these two
clips separate, you should join the through edit to create a single clip. This reduces the
number of events in your EDL and simplifies the process of re-creating your edit with
another editing system. For more information, see Volume II, Chapter 13, “Cutting Clips
and Adjusting Durations.”
