Setting the Project Length

By default, the length of a project depends on the media in the project. The project length is set to the end of the last clip in the project. If the project uses a time-based effect, and the effect extends past the end of the last clip, the project length extends to include the effect’s “tail.” Adding a clip to the end of the project, or adding an effect that produces a “tail,” extends the project length to include the new clip or the effect’s tail. You can optionally set the project to a definite length.

To set the project length
  • In the Timeline, place the playhead at the point where you want the project to end, then choose Mark > Set End of Project.

    Figure. End-of-project marker.

You can move the end-of-project marker to change the length of the project, or delete it if you decide you no longer want it in the project.

To delete the end-of-project marker
  • Select the marker in the Timeline, then choose Edit > Delete (or press the Delete key.)
