ScreenFlow terms

Edit Points

Points where two clips are joined together on the timeline.

What is editing points in ScreenFlow?

Editing points in ScreenFlow refer to the specific points or markers in a video timeline that users can manipulate or modify to achieve desired video effects. These points are crucial in the video editing process as they allow users to cut, trim, split, or merge video clips, adjust the timing or sequence of scenes, add transitions, or apply various visual and audio effects.

ScreenFlow's user-friendly interface makes it easy to add and adjust these editing points. Users can simply click on the timeline where they want to add an editing point, then use the software's editing tools to make their desired changes. This feature provides a high level of precision and control, enabling users to create professional-quality videos with ease.

How to edit points in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow allows users to edit points or markers within their video editing process. To edit points in ScreenFlow, first, you need to open the project you want to edit. Then, navigate to the timeline where you will see your video clips. You can add a marker or point by simply clicking on the timeline where you want the marker to be, then select 'Markers' from the top menu and click 'Add Marker'.

To edit these markers or points, you can simply click and drag them along the timeline to the desired location. If you want to delete a marker, right-click on it and select 'Delete Marker'. You can also double-click on a marker to rename it or add notes. Remember to save your project regularly to avoid losing any changes.

Why can't I edit points in ScreenFlow?

ScreenFlow is a video editing and screen recording software that allows users to create professional-quality videos. However, it does not have a feature that allows users to directly edit points or keyframes within the software. This is because ScreenFlow is designed to be a simple, user-friendly tool for recording and editing videos, and it does not include some of the more advanced features found in professional video editing software.

If you need to edit points or keyframes, you may need to use a more advanced video editing software. Alternatively, you can try to achieve your desired effect by manipulating the video clips in ScreenFlow. For example, you can split a clip into multiple parts, adjust the speed of each part, or apply different effects to each part. While this may not be as precise as editing points or keyframes, it can often achieve a similar result.

What are the steps to edit points in ScreenFlow?

To edit points in ScreenFlow, you first need to open the project you want to work on. Once your project is open, navigate to the timeline where your clips are located. Select the clip you want to edit by clicking on it. This will highlight the clip and open up the editing options.

In the editing options, you will find a variety of tools that you can use to edit your clip. To edit points, you need to use the 'Add Starting/Ending Transition' tool. Click on this tool and then click on the point in the clip where you want to add a transition. A small marker will appear on the clip at the point where you clicked. You can then adjust this marker to change the duration of the transition.

Remember to save your changes once you're done editing. You can do this by clicking on the 'File' menu and then selecting 'Save'. Your changes will then be applied to the clip and you can preview them by playing the clip in the timeline.
