Slip tool doesn't set in and out points

Hey guys,

I'm new here and am following the "HitFilm Basics Masterclass" video. While trying out the slip tool, I noticed it didn't set the in and out points or update the viewer: the in point remains 00:00:00:00 and the out point is the length of the clip.

What am I missing?


Thanks :-)

    @tommybeck if you just dragged the full clip in, then the slip tool won't do anything. Picture it this way, you have the underlying "clip", and then a section of it, from the in to the out point. The slip tool is "slipping" the full length of the footage underneath this section on top, changing which frames the in/out point correlate to. So if you never clipped the footage via in/out point to start with, you can't slip that underlying clip.

  • Got it, thanks for the extensive explanation!
