Imagine I made a bunch of changes to a project, I have a bunch of videos lined up like
[clipA][clipB][clipC]. Now I want to tweak clipB's start/end times without changing it's duration such that the audio for all the other clips is still aligned properly.
I know I can drag the left/right edges of clipB, but that'll mess with the audio and where all the other clips start/end. All I want to do is adjust the start time of clipB.
I'm assuming there is a way to specify the timecode for the start via typing it in, but I want a way to do this with the UI.
iMovie has this feature. You just go to Window > Show Clip Trimmer. Then you drag the clip left and right to change its start time while keeping the duration intact.
I couldn't find a way to do this in Final Cut Pro. The closest I could find is I can go Clip > Open Clip, and then there is an interface that looks like it would allow me to drag the clip to adjust the start time, but the text always shows
+00:00.00, and after dropping it, it resets back to the default.
How can I adjust the start time of a clip via the GUI without affecting its duration?
Update: Here is a screengrab from iMovie that shows exactly what I'm trying to do. Notice how I can tweak the start/end times of the clip without affecting the clip's duration:
How do I do the same thing in Final Cut Pro?
