Gap clips are silent clips that can help you adjust the timing of your script media, or if you need to add b-roll without any script media.
Gap clips have room tone on by default
Room tone is an AI-generated noise profile added to gap clips which helps seamless blend with your gap clips with a recording's background noise. To silence gap clips, disable room tone on individual clips or modify the default settings in your App Settings or for a specific project.
Adding a gap clip
- Make sure the script track is visible; you can expand the timeline by dragging the top border of the panel, or select Show all layers.
- If you are adjusting the timing for an Overdub clip, you need to first convert the Overdub to audio.
- Right-click on the script track and select Insert gap clip. Remember, disable room tone if you want a completely silent gap clip.
Replacing a section with a gap clip
- Make sure the script track is visible; you can expand the timeline by dragging the top border of the panel or select Show all layers.
- With the range tool, make a selection in your script.
