Drag and Drop Editing

When you drag an object to the Timeline, a drop menu appears (Figure 5.17). If you drag to a layer, the available options are Composite, Insert, and Overwrite; if you drag to an object, you get an additional option called Exchange. Note that it’s not only important where you drag vertically, meaning which track the mouse is over when you let go, but it’s also important where you drag horizontally, meaning where the mouse is located in time, because that determines the in point, or the beginning of the object.
