Add/remove gaps on Timeline

from the official website.

The gaps represent unused time segments within a project's timeline, indicating that there are missing elements or footage to be added for proper completion.

To add gaps into your project, follow these steps:
Step 1. Identify the video track you wish to modify by clicking on the arrow icon preceding it. Alternatively, right-click on the designated area in front of the track and select "Enable Gaps on Track".

Step 2. To create a gap within this track, locate a clip and drag it to the desired distance away from another clip. This will create an empty space between them.

To remove gaps from your video editing project, follow these steps:
Step 1. Identify the gap you wish to remove by right-clicking on it.

Step 2. Select "Delete Gap" from the context menu to delete the selected gap entirely. Alternatively, select "Delete All Gaps" to remove every gap on the track at once.
Once you have deleted a gap, the adjacent clips will seamlessly adjoin each other, creating a continuous and cohesive video sequence.

To remove a clip from a track while maintaining the position of adjacent clips, follow these steps:
Step 1. Identify the clip you wish to delete by right-clicking on it.
Step 2. Select "Ripple Delete" from the context menu to eliminate the selected clip and move all the clips located on its right according to their length without deleting any gaps.

By using Ripple Delete in Movavi Video Editor, you can efficiently remove unwanted footage without disrupting the overall structure of your video editing project.

To join all clips together without any gaps, locate the crossed-out arrow icon situated in front of the video track:

Or right-click on the area in front of the track and select "Disable Gaps on Track" from the context menu.

Once you have disabled gaps on the track, all clips will be adjoined to each other without any interruptions or gaps in between. This will create a continuous and uninterrupted video sequence that flows smoothly from one clip to the next.

Add/remove markers on Timeline

To delineate key points within a video sequence along its timeline, you can add markers. Go to the Timeline and position the cursor at the desired location where you wish to place a marker. Next, right-click on the Timeline and select "Add Marker" from the context menu, and then enter the name (short description). Once created, each marker can be used as a reference point for subsequent editing actions.

To remove a marker, right-click on the corresponding marker located on the Timeline and select "Remove Marker" from the context menu. The marker will no longer appear on the Timeline. To delete all markers at once, select "Remove All Markers" from the context menu. This action will eliminate all markers currently placed on the Timeline.
