You're watching VisiHow. In this video, we are going to show how to trim a clip in Premiere Pro.
To trim a clip, we double-click the audio track first
This will expand it.
We press the "+" key to zoom in
We can see that there is some dead space before the talent start talking. There are a few ways of trimming the dead space.
One way of trimming the dead space is pressing the "V" key and clicking and dragging the start of the clip to the right
We right click the empty audio area and select "Ripple Delete"
Alternatively, we can select the entire clip and move it to the left
The other way of trimming the dead space is pressing the "C" key
The clip will be cut at the cursor position. Then, we can edit the clip.
We press the "V" and "delete" keys
We'll have to move the entire clip or use "Ripple Delete" again as in step 4.
Alternatively, we press "option" and "delete" keys to close the gap
The quickest way of trimming the dead space is to use the playhead
We place the playhead where we want to trim the clip.
The "Q" key will delete everything to the left of the playhead.
We press "fn" and the right arrow key
We will go to the end of the clip. We will see where the end of the audio is.
We move the playhead to the end of the audio
We press the "W" key to delete everything to the right of the playhead
