  • Slip Edit in Edius?

    In Edius 3 I used to be able keep a clip fixed in one place on the timeline and only move (slip) the content inside it without changing the start and end points on the time timeline. Version 4 doesn't seem to have this function. How do I do slip edit?

    Look in the helpfile, go to "index", keyword "slip" and you have 1 way to do this.
    Or enter "trim mode" in version 4 with F6 => you'll find a "slip trim button" under the right screen.

      If you select F6 you will see you are now in trim mode.

      If you look to the right of the buttons across the bottom of the overlays you will see one that is called select-slip.

      When you select this button you will see the ends of the selected clip is now colored.

      All you have to do is hold the mouse cursor over the overlay windows... hold your left mouse button down, and then drag to the right or left and you will be slipping the video inside of your In and Out points. :)

        A Slip Edit is a very commonly performed operation when adding cut aways or even just timing a shot. In the older versions of Edius it was a simple case of holding down CTRL+ALT (I think) and "slipping" the clip within it's I/O points. This was great because often you are looking at an external monitor while "slipping" so as long as your mouse was clicking in the region of the clip it would slip around as you clicked and dragged it.

        Now, "Slipping" is a converluded process of Pressing F6, Clicking on an icon and having to click a totally different region of the screen or use those annoying green and yellow light up bits. In contrast, Premiere Pro lets you tap "Y" and then click anywhere in the clip to slip it around. (AVID & FCP have similar shortcuts)

        The old Edius "shift" "ctrl" and "alt" combination keys were much better than they are now. I don't understand why they were ever removed.

        I've assigned the "Y" key to "Trim - Select Clip", but clicking on a clip to Slip it just disables Trim again. Yes, I can use those annoying green / yellow things, but it requires a few pixels of mouse/waycom precision and I can't be looking at an external monitor at the same time as "slipping" around. It would be much better if the whole clip could be clicked and dragged around to slip it.

        Or better still (and every long time Edius user I've talked to agrees) bring back the old Edius keys!!! Or at least an option "Alturnative Trim Keys"

        It's the biggest cause of swearing in our studio and we are shocked that no one else is jumping up and down about the fact the old keys were removed. We really expected to see them back in Edius 4.5. The Keyboard Shortcut assignment doesn't allow you to put things back to how they were.

        If I'm wrong, please tell me, because the old shortcuts would make editing a lot faster than it is now.

        thanks

                  Is anyone using the keyboard shortcuts for Trim - Select Slip (no default key), and Trim -1 and +1 frame (default , and . for -1 and +1 frame)?

                    I only use the trim mode to nudge. For me Keyboard shortcuts in normal mode are way Faster.

                      I agree. I've found trim mode to be the longer way round in Edius - You can get there using normal edit mode quicker. Avid trim mode FTW!

                        when it comes to split trimming and trimming, I prefer Edius3 in many ways

                        don't like that new yellow and green business

                          If you are slip trim you don't place the mouse on tghe clip... you drag it up in the overlay window area.

                          I will have to try and get a tutorial out on this because it is WAY hard if you try to use the colored ends on the clips. :)

                            Hi Mike

                            since my edit workflow is now slower than what it was in E3, I for one would certainly be interrested in any tutorial that can get me back to the same speed

                            <OT on> btw, I just edited a TV documentary, I spent 71 hours and had 136 TMPro related crashes, I made a stroke on a piece of paper every time the error popped or when TmPro vanished </OT off>

                              Anton... We are aware of the TM problem and they are working on it. Do not try to hijack another thread please.
