Frm (From point)

Specifies the time of the copy source playback data in relation to the “To” point. Normally you will set this to be the same as the Start point.

Using “Frm” Effectively

Normally, the data is copied starting at the speci-fied copy destination time.

However, if you want to have the copy made with reference to a point within the designated range where a specific sound occurs, set this with “Frm.”

For example, suppose that you wish to copy a sound effect of a time bomb ticking and then exploding, and that you want to place the explosion at a specific timing location.

Normally, in order to specify the copy destination time, you would have to calculate the time until the explosion occurs.

In such cases, however, you can specify “Frm” as “the copy source time at which the explosion begins” and “TO” (the reference time of the copy destination) as “the copy destination time at which you want the explosion to occur.” This lets you copy the data with the explosion placed with precisely the right timing.
