Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer and Split Edits

Avid%20Spit%20edit.gif

A split edit is where the video and audio start or end at different points. This is essential for good editing and helps break up the boring straight cuts. Some good uses for the split edit include: extending the video so that it overlaps the beginning of other audio from the proceeding shot, get a different tempo out of your production, or to fix a bad incoming or outgoing shot. To create a split edit follow these simple steps.

1. Park your blue line where you want to perform your split edit and enter trim mode.
2. Turn off either the video or audio buttons depending on which track you want to extend.
3. Now in dual roller trim mode slide the edit point either right or left on the timeline.
4. Do not exit trim mode until you preview your work while you are still in trim mode. This allows you to make adjustments and watch them as you go.
5. When you are down exit trim mode and sit back and enjoy!
