Media Composer 2018 | Top & Tail Editing

Not many editors seem to know about top and tail editing. Boiled down, a top edit cuts out everything to the left of the play head*, and a tail edit cuts everything on the right (*up to the next edit point) and everything will shuffle down. This is often MUCH faster than using In and Out markers and extracting or using your timeline tools. In this video I’ll show you how to set it up in Media Composer so you can get your edit done faster!
