What are Clip Settings?

☕️ TL;DR - Clip Settings allow you to make changes directly to your current Clips without affecting the Project Settings.


🎓In this article you will learn about:

  1. Clip Crop
    1. AutoCrop/Custom Track
    2. Zoom
    3. KeyFrame
  2. Clip Options
    1. Remove Black Bars
    2. Speed
    3. Audio
    4. Reverse

😎Heads up: You need to change the Project Aspect Ratio open_in_new-24px to apply AutoCrop. This is accessible from the Settings settings-24px panel or from underneath the Workspace in Preview ondemand_video-24pxmode.

To view the Clip Settings click the Preview ondemand_video-24px button from the left navigation panel.
