How to Ripple Edit

How to Ripple Edit

By Discovery Center Team

Learning how to ripple edit may not sound very familiar to you, but once you learn how you’ll wonder how you ever got by without it. The best way to describe what a ripple edit is would be to explain a situation you would need it. Let’s say you have finished your slideshow complete with pictures, music, and titles when somebody advises that they do not want you to use their picture anymore. If their photo is in the middle of your movie, removing it can completely throw off the timing of everything else! That’s where a ripple edit comes in. A ripple edit lets a single edit ripple down through the rest of the movie to ensure everything stays in sync and just the way you designed it. Save yourself the headache and time when you learn how to ripple edit in VideoStudio Pro.

In this tutorial you will learn:

  • How to lock a track.
  • How to start a ripple edit.

      Hi Gregory, thanks for your suggestion, we will look into creating a tutorial on this subject. In the meantime, you can find information about applying and customizing filters in the VideoStudio User Guide (starting on page 133 of the X9 user guide). And if you search “filters” in the Help Topics you can find this info as well. You can access the Help Topics or User Guide under the Help Menu in VideoStudio. Hope this helps!
