Shelf

The value of the shelf, visible to the right of the Monitor window in Figure 13.1, quickly becomes apparent when you connect your camcorder to the Mac for the first time and start capturing clips. It almost seems like alien technology at work as you watch the video clips from your tape start to appear in the shelf. The shelf is like a pantry for video—when you capture video, you load up the shelf with clips and you can take a quick glance to see what you have to work with.

As you'll see in later hours, the shelf gives you several additional tools to enhance your video productions, including transitions, titles, and effects, as well as a place to put audio if you've recorded it separately from your video.
