Precision clip placement

I'm stretching clips to match an audio track (the clips are still images). I need to stretch the edge of a clip a specific frame placement.\

Not knowing any better, I have resorted to using the mouse to try and drag the edge of the clip until the time matches what I want. This is generally almost impossible to do with any precision. I feel like there must be a way to somewhere key in the value I want the clip to stop at (or begin, for that matter). Using a mouse to achieve that accuracy is hopeless.

Can I do this via keyboard?

Thanks Chuck Puckett

Yes. Depending on which version of PD you have, you'll want to select the clip and then click on the Duration button or the clock icon that appears above the timeline. In PD14, it's Duration:



Clicking on the "?" at the top right of the main window will bring up the Help file and you can search for "duration" or "trim" to see related options.
