Sometimes you will find a spot in your sequence where the content doesn't exactly start or end at just the right point in the space you have to work with.  You can use a trimming function called Slip to adjust a clip's in and out points without changing it's duration or position in the Timeline.  We refer to it as slipping because you "slip" a pair of In & Out points inside the available footage.

To perform a slip edit:

  • Double-click on your clip to load it into the Viewer
  • Move the playhead to the frame where you want the shot to start
  • Select the Slip tool by the keyboard shortcut, S
  • Position the pointer over the In point.  The pointer changes to the Slip tool.
  • Click and drag the edit point to match the position of the playhead
It is important to remember that to slip a clip, it must have handles on both sides, meaning there must be additional media available on both the head and tail of the clip.  If you are having trouble slipping a clip, check to make sure that the clip has handles on both sides.

Trimming in Final Cut Pro is like fine-tuning your sequence.  The point is to make you a quicker and more efficient editor.
