Using the Trim Tool in Blackmagic DaVinci Resolve
In this tutorial, Sean Berry from videomaker.com walks you through the use of the trim tool in DaVinci Resolve. It’s a bit different than other trim tools (especially if you’re used to Premiere Pro) and takes some getting used to, but once you learn it, it makes editing much easier.
Here’s an excerpt from the tutorial. Click the link below to read the full tutorial.
To perform ripple, slide, slip and roll edits, you first must enter DaVinci Resolve’s Trim Edit Mode. In Resolve, the Trim Mode is a dynamic process. Essentially that means that when you are working in the Trim Edit Mode, you can perform different edits depending where you place your cursor. It makes the entire editing process much faster and more efficient. Additionally, this mode allows you to edit without having to memorize multiple keyboard shortcuts or know where a particular tool is in the interface. You can access the Trim Edit Mode by pressing T on the keyboard. That’s the only shortcut you need. You have to be in the Trim Edit Mode to do any of these trims.
