  2. Drag the Trim markers on either side of the clip to change its length. The Preview Window reflects the position of the Trim marker in the clip.

Note: Instant timecode tip is a feature of Corel VideoStudio Pro that allows you to add clips with a specific timecode. It appears while trimming and inserting overlapping clips on the Timeline, enabling you to make adjustments based on the timecode shown. For example, the instant timecode tip appears with the format 00:00:00.00 (00 - 04.25). 00:00:00.00 indicates the current timecode where the selected clip is located. The (00 - 04.25) start - end range represents the duration of one overlapping clip with the previous clip and another overlapping with the next clip.

To trim a clip using the Duration box

  1. Click a clip on the Timeline to select it.
  2. Click the timecode in the Duration box in the Options Panel and enter the desired clip length.

Note: Changes made in the video Duration box only affect the Mark-out point. The Mark-in point remains unchanged.
