Clipchamp is full of intuitive video editing shortcuts to make your video faster. Read on to learn how to speed up your video editing by using the gap removal feature.

What is gap removal? 

It’s a feature in Clipchamp that identifies gaps in your editing timeline and lets you instantly delete them. Gap removal is a highly requested feature; probably because gaps pop up a lot while video editing and can easily go unnoticed. In an exported video, undeleted gaps become blank screens or awkward silences, and nobody wants to watch that.  

How to remove gaps from your video

Step 1. Find the gap in the timeline

Gaps are created in the timeline when arranging video clips in a montage, trimming video assets, among other actions. The gap will be noticeable because you’ll see a black empty space.

Step 2. Remove your gap

Hover your cursor over the gap you’ve created, and a trash can icon will appear. This icon is for gap removal. Select the icon to remove your gap. You’ll notice nearby clips will rearrange to close the gap.

How to remove stacked gaps

Sometimes, you’ll have multiple gaps stacked on top of each other in the timeline — a video and an audio track for example. If this happens, you won’t need to remove these gaps individually. Instead, hover your cursor at the top of the timeline to see the trash icon appear. Select the icon to remove the stacked gaps.

How to remove extra small gaps 

Some gaps will be too small to display the gap removal icon. If you have an extra small gap like this, hover your cursor over the gap, right click and select delete gap from the options that appear.

How to remove all gaps in one click

When you believe your video is done, all you have to do is click the export button to get it ready for publishing and sharing. But what if you missed some gaps? Our mind the gap feature will make sure you don’t. 

When you click the export button and the video editor detects gaps in your video, a notification window will immediately pop up on your screen. This will give you the option to clear all the gaps once and for all, let you get back to editing and apply the fixes yourself, or proceed to export if you meant to have those gaps there for a reason.
