Simple question

I mark In and Out in my clip and when I drop it in the sequence it also adds one more frame after the Out point. How can I change this so exactly the piece between in and out shows in my sequence?
Did a search and couldn't find anything on it
Thanks

when you park yourplayhead at a point in the clip and mark in, it includes the frame you see. Th in point is at the head of that frame. When you put the playhead at another point in your clip and mark an out point, in includes the frame you are looking at. The outpoint is at the end of that frame.

No NLE that I know of adds the frame AFTER you mark your out.

Well

when I drag it to the timeline it also drags one more extra frame.
I checked it everytime.
To solve it what I do is put a marker at the exact out point I want then go one frame back put the out point and drag it to the timeline. Since it brings one more frame I have the exact point I want.
Is there a way to avoid this?

Is the last frame of video you marked in the viewer NOT the last frame of video that ends up on the timeline? Are you thinking that when you park your playhead on a frame and mark out, that it DOESN'T include the frame you are currently looking at? Because it does.

No the last frame in my timeline is the next frame from the one I marked in the viewer as my OUT point.
To bypass this and in order to get to the one I want exactly I mark one before the one I want so when I move it to the timeline (and erroneously brings one more frame) I get exactly what I want.
I am sorry that is the best way I can explain it.
I appreciate your help
