Adobe Premiere: How To Do a Ripple Edit

In Adobe Premiere, doing an edit on your clips and timeline is made easy with various tools and options. Unlike other video editing programs out there, such as those available for free, editing on Adobe Premiere is more convenient. For instance, you as an editor may encounter having to do a ripple edit. If you have a number of video clips in your timeline and you find that you want to lengthen or shorten your running time, you may have to manipulate each clip in some editing software. 

In Adobe Premiere, doing a ripple edit is as easy as click and drag. Here's how.

Step 1. Select the Ripple Edit tool on the right side of your timeline. This button looks like a double-headed arrow with a line down the middle.

Step 2. Place the mouse at an edit point of your clip or timeline. You can also just highlight the clips that you want to alter. 

Step 3. Drag outwards or inwards. Drag to the right to increase your running time and drag to the left to decrease it. 

You will notice that all clips will lengthen or shorten by the same amount, depending on how much you drag. This will affect the total running time of your entire video.
