@OhMyGosh yes

EDIT: I miss read your question and apparently thought you meant dragging it to make the event longer, which would make the track longer, unless of course something else was shorten to keep it the same length. My apology for my misleading and incorrect answer. "drag the ends of an event towards it's center" is shortening the event, but it didn't register to be obvious to me at the time for whatever reason!!


@OhMyGosh I just edited my incorrect previous answer. Not sure why my head wasn't screwed down tight, sorry for my was incorrect answer.

     Nothing to apologize for Eagle Six, I appreciate the response. It was my fault for not making what I was doing more clear. Sometimes I have large events that I only need a few seconds from and I like to keep them mostly in tact by shortening them by dragging. I was just concerned that I might be creating a monster file to render and use by doing that instead of actually trimming and discarding the extra. Thanks again. Cin

Well, it is a bigger thing for me because I really hate misleading and putting wrong information out. The funny thing, at least for me, was when I read the replies after mine I was surprised that others were disagreeing with me! Then when I reread what you had asked and I replied it was clear why they disagreed.

So, we know that Movie Studio (and Vegas Pro) when making cuts is not destructive, so cutting/slicing to edit or simply dragging does not effect the source media.
