Let's say this is a segment of a video clip and each letter is a frame: jklmnopqrst

 

Once in a while I find I have edit like this on the timeline: jkpqr (middle and last part deleted) and it was done so long ago I can no longer undo it, but want to restore it to jklmnopqr. jk would be one clip and pqr would be another clip.

One way to do this is to delete pqr, make a bigger space there, then extend jk into jklmnopqr

But because extending the clip is by eyeball, I could end up with jklmnopq or jklmnopqrs (off by 1 frame or more) unless I zoom to frame level and compare the clips frame by frame. This example is shortened actual clips are minutes long not just a few frames.

Is there a quicker and more precise way to do this?

 

This happens when editing a program to fit a given total length, so I delete stuff. But sometimes I over delete and need to put some back.

Let me fill in the details.

Put the cursor on the last frame of the clip, in this case "r". Hit F to load the source clip at that frame. Mark this location in the source clip. Now move to the first frame "j" in the timeline and hit F again. Now mark this as IN point in the source monitor, and move to the next marker, then mark it as OUT point. Then move this clip from the source window to the timeline. This would be "jklmnopqr".

I want to revise my method. I'm learning new stuff as I go.

The first part is the same as above:

Put the cursor on the last frame of the clip, in this case "r". Hit F to load the source clip at that frame. Mark this location in the source clip.

Make sure there is enough room behind the jk clip because the new clip will be put there.

Now double click on the jk clip. This puts the jk clip in the source monitor in a different mode. Moving the in and out point in the source monitor will change the clip's length in the timeline.

Go to the next marker (the one you mark in the previous step), then click mark out. Done.
