A skilled video maker can shoot a variety of clips and then cut them together so that they appear to unfold in real-time, even though minutes or even days may have elapsed between each clip. We filmed a horse jumping a fence twice – first in a wide establishing shot and then in a dramatic close-up. Because the shot size changes, we can cut between the clips, making it look like we shot the action with two cameras. This change of shot size also adds variety to the edited production. For the action to flow smoothly it’s essential that the position of the horse is the same in both clips, as we cut from one to the other. The Clip Trimmer and the Precision Editor enable us to fine-tune the cut to perfection.
