ScreenFlow terms

Out Point

The point marking the end of a portion of a clip or sequence.

What is an out point in ScreenFlow?

An out point in ScreenFlow is a marker or point that signifies the end of a specific segment or section of a video or audio clip. It is used during the editing process to define where a particular clip or sequence should end. This tool is particularly useful when you want to trim or cut your video or audio to a specific length.

In ScreenFlow, you can set an out point by moving the scrubber, which is the red vertical line in the timeline, to the desired end position of your clip. Then, you can use the 'O' shortcut on your keyboard to set the out point. This will effectively cut off the remainder of the clip beyond the out point, allowing you to control the duration and content of your final output.

How to set the out point in ScreenFlow?

Setting the out point in ScreenFlow is a simple process that involves a few steps. First, you need to open your project in ScreenFlow and navigate to the timeline where your video clips are displayed. Play the video or manually move the scrubber (the red vertical line) to the point where you want to set the out point.

Once you've found the exact point, you can set the out point by simply clicking on the 'O' button on your keyboard. This will mark the end of the section of the video you want to keep or export. Remember, everything after the out point will be excluded from the final video. You can adjust the in and out points as many times as you need until you're satisfied with the selection.

Why is my out point not working in ScreenFlow?

There could be several reasons why your out point is not working in ScreenFlow. One common issue could be a software glitch or bug. This can often be resolved by simply restarting the program or your computer. If the problem persists, you may need to update or reinstall ScreenFlow to ensure you have the latest version and all necessary updates.

Another possible reason could be related to the specific project or file you are working on. The file may be corrupted or there could be an issue with the specific section of the video you are trying to set the out point for. Try setting an out point on a different section of the video or on a different project to see if the problem continues. If it does, you may need to seek technical support from ScreenFlow's customer service or user forums.

Can I adjust the out point value in ScreenFlow?

Yes, you can adjust the out point value in ScreenFlow. ScreenFlow provides a feature that allows you to adjust the in and out points of your clips. This is particularly useful when you want to trim the beginning or end of your clip to make it fit perfectly within your project timeline.

To adjust the out point value, you simply need to select the clip in your timeline, then drag the end of the clip to the left or right to adjust the out point. You can also use the arrow keys for more precise adjustments. Remember to save your changes once you're done. This feature gives you greater control over your video editing, allowing you to create a more polished and professional final product.
