Adjusting the In and Out Points of Sound Clips


You can trim off the beginning and the end of sound clips so as to only play a specific part of the clip in your animatic. This is also referred to as changing the in and out points of clips.

You can trim off parts of a clip in the Timeline view simply by dragging one of its left or right edges towards its middle. If you trim off part of a sound clip, the trimmed off part does not get deleted. At any time, you can extend the edges of clip back to their original position to restore the parts that were trimmed off.

TIP It is easier to edit sound clips with their waveform displaying in the Timeline view—see Displaying Waveforms.
