Snap offsets allow you to set a point other than the beginning of a clip as the “snap” point used by the Snap to Grid. A snap offset is the number of samples from the beginning of the clip. Snap offsets affect all edits that obey the Snap to Grid setting. Once the snap offset is added, you can set the Timer Ruler to SMPTE or MBT time.
1. Locate the place in the clip where you want to put the snap offset, and set the Now Time to that location. Use the Scrub tool if necessary.
2. Right-click on the clip and select Set Snap Offset to Now Time from the menu that appears.Edits to that clip, when the Snap to Grid button is depressed, now snap to the snap offset rather than the beginning of the clip.
2. Open the Clip Inspector and select the Properties section.
