Snap (editor)


snap tool

The Snap tool turns snapping on and off. With snapping turned on, clips will automatically 'snap' to other clips and timeline elements so that you can precisely align multiple items.

Snapping behaviour

When snapping is turned on your clips will snap to other items on the timeline when you move or trim them.

Valid snapping targets are:

In and out points of any timeline clip.
The playhead.
The in and out points of the work area.

Note that clips do not have to be visible in the track view to be valid snapping targets.

The Slice tool will also snap to edit points, which makes it easy to slice a clip at a specific frame. You can either move the playhead to the correct location before using the Slice tool, or align the slice with a clip on another track.

RECAP Snap is useful for aligning clips and ensuring that there are no unintended gaps in your sequence. If you need frame-accurate precision, turn snapping off.
