    Is there a way to change the IN and OUT points (white vertical lines) while you are inside a compound clip?

    Please see screenshot.

    By the way, is there a shortcut to move the play head to these IN and OUT points?

    I dont believe there is a way to edit the I/O within the CC.
    That is based on the CCs edit points residing in the Project timeline.
    You can always use the TRIM within the CC if you need to do some finite editing.
    As well as on the CC clip in the Project timeline.
    Not sure why you would want to move the playhead at the specific points.

    The lines represent the edit points of the compound clip as set by dragging the ends of the compound clip from the outside. Just curious what you’d want to change that from inside the clip rather than just dragging the edit points in the timeline?

    [Jeff Kirkland] “Just curious what you’d want to change that from inside the clip rather than just dragging the edit points in the timeline?”

    Good question. How is editing the compound OUT of context more helpful or more effective than IN context of the project it’s in? The result is the same in both cases, only you can SEE what you’re doing when in the project as opposed to when in the CC.

    I’d need this too. I worked with a client and set notes inside the compound clip like (from here… to this point…). If I were able to set the INs and OUTs from inside the compound clip, that would save me from doing it by recognizing the points…?

     

    any suggestion?

    thanks!

    There is no way to change the I/O points of a compound clip from inside the clip. Those lines represent the I/O points as it relates to your current timeline. In a different timeline, it would reflect different points – it’s only a reference.

    Why wouldn’t you simply do that in the event as with any other clip? Mark ins and outs, even multiple if you want, and favorite or keyword them. Done.
