Quick Reference

In film and video editing, the procedure of adjusting the beginning and end cuts of a particular shot in relation to the preceding or following footage, or adding to or taking away from the overall duration of a sequence. In traditional film editing, the strips of film that are cut out of a sequence are called trims. These are saved in labelled containers called ‘bins’ in case they need to be cut back into a sequence at a later time; hence trimming is the process of adding or removing them.
