Rolling edit

A method of editing in the Timeline by adjusting and trimming two adjacent clips.

A rotating edit means moving an edit point without affecting the rest of the timeline. The first (outgoing) clip is made shorter while the second (inbound) clip is lengthened by the same amount, and vice versa. The net effect is that the overall length of the program is not changed.

Rolling Edit Tool; To perform a rolling edit, select the rolling edit tool (right image) from the tool panel. Move the mouse to the editing point on the timeline and drag left or right.

In the following example, the first timeline shows the original edit. In the second timeline, the edit point between clip 2 and clip 3 is moved further down the timeline. In other words, clip 2's exit point and clip 3's entry point are advanced by the same amount.
