Chapter 5. Compositing and Editing in th... > Editing Objects in the Timeline

Editing Objects in the Timeline

We’ve discussed how Motion allows you to perform basic editing operations when you are adding objects to the Timeline. We’ve also covered organizing the Timeline as it builds in complexity. Now it’s time to really put the Timeline to work by examining how we can work with tracks: moving, trimming, and slipping media; copying, pasting, deleting, splitting, and soloing tracks; editing on layer tracks; editing regions; and inserting time. When combined with the ability to align objects to each other and specific points with snapping and markers, these operations form a powerful set of editing tools.

Moving objects in time

Moving an object in the Timeline changes its location without affecting its content or duration. For example, you could move a 5-second video clip from the beginning of the project to the middle so that it plays later in time. You can also quickly reposition objects by making them jump to the playhead location.
