Q: How can we control the story in the edit by adjusting how much of each clip we include?
A: By trimming the clips, we have the flexibility to show different portions of a scene, which can alter the narrative and the message conveyed to the audience.
Q: Can we choose to include only a portion of a clip?
A: Yes, we can choose to cut earlier in a clip to show only a specific part, or we can include the later part of a clip to focus on the conclusion of an action.
Q: Is it possible to show different perspectives or emphasize specific elements in a clip by trimming it?
A: Absolutely. Trimming allows us to select which parts of a clip to include, which can help showcase different perspectives, highlight specific actions, or emphasize certain elements within a scene.
Q: How can we determine the amount of each clip to include?
A: The decision on how much of each clip to include depends on the story we want to tell. It is important to consider the message we want to convey, the pacing of the video, and the overall narrative flow when deciding the amount of each clip to include.
Q: Does trimming clips affect the order in which they are placed in the timeline?
A: Trimming clips does not impact the order in which they are placed in the timeline. It only affects the specific portion of the clip that is included in the final edit.
Q: How can we navigate the timeline in DaVinci Resolve?
A: By clicking and dragging with the middle button of the mouse, we can move back and forth on the timeline, allowing us to easily navigate and position clips within the edit.
