Not sure how to ask this question with the appropirate terminology so here it goes. Im trying find the correct part of the footage that I want to use in a clip that I imported and put into my comp layers. When I double click the footage it pops up a layer windo where there is a second playhead matching the main one. How do I locate and truncate a clip to the part that I want to use?
I know this probably sounds like a big mess but hopefully someone can figure out what I'm trying to do. Basically, I have this really long clip and slipping in the main window is taking forever to find the piece that I want to use. Is there an easier faster way to do this?
So, I found this on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DxKSj3aV6Yk. And I think it answers part of my question. I have to trim the clip before I insert it. But, it doesn't exlain how to manipulate the footage after it's in the layer panel.
