Erase Unwanted Parts of Clip From Disk ...

Hi,

to save up HD space and to get rid of unuesed length of clips, I was wondering if there was a shortcut to cut and erase unwanted parts of the clip at the in and out points, with a bit headroom around the in and out points for the use with transitions etc. ?

Would make my life much easier if I could do that. I very often use less than 1% of a long clip only, and it would be great to trash unnecessary length right after I've viewed it and determined the in and outs. Great thing if I instantly be able to prevent from wasting tons of HD space.

 

Regards,

Frank

    With most common HD formats or anything MPEG based, no this isn't possible.

     

    But given the prices of storage these days, it's usually best to just accommodate those needs with larger/more hard drives.

    That's just not how NLEs work.

     

    Sorry.
