Manually Edit Clip Duration in Photoshop CS6
Edited by Freya, Amanda, Eng
You're watching VisiHow. In this video, I'm going to show you how you can manually edit the duration of a clip in Photoshop CS6 in Windows 7. To begin, you should have some video imported, which you can find out how to do in our tutorial on importing video into Photoshop CS6. The preview is at the top, and the timeline is at the bottom, where we can see how long our clip is for. This is only for one particular clip, as shown in the layers list.
Right-click on the clip's bar at the bottom of the screen.
In the pop-up window, look at the top left. We have video and audio icons. Make sure video is selected. Click the first icon to select it if needed.
Click the downward-pointing arrow next to "Duration".
Click, hold, and drag the slider under "Duration" to change the duration. For this demonstration, we can go down to 1 second, or as high as 7.68 seconds, which is the maximum duration of this clip.
Release the slider. Looking at the timeline, it has cropped the video.
Click in the field next to "Duration" and type a number. This is an alternate way to adjust the duration. For example, we can type "2.5" and it will crop it again.
Click off the pop-up window. The crop will apply, and it won't double-check with us. If we had clicked off the pop-up window by accident, or if we decide we cropped the video poorly, we can step back.
Press Ctrl + Alt+ Z to step back or undo, if needed.
