Chapter 3. iMovie > Return clips to the Clips Pane from the Timeline

Return clips to the Clips Pane from the Timeline

You may decide to delete a clip from your movie, but want to keep it somewhere in case you change your mind. If you used the copy and paste technique described on page 142, you can just select the clip in the Timeline and press the Delete key. The original clip is still in the Clips Pane when you need it later. If you originally dragged the clip from the Clips Pane to the Timeline, it's not in the Clips Pane any more. If you delete the clip, it goes to the Trash. You can recover it from the Trash as long as you don't empty the Trash first. But you can also just drag the clip from the Timeline back up to the Clips Pane and drop it there. Now the clip is available if you decide to use it later.

You can drag clips out of the Timeline and place them back in the Clips Pane.This can be done in both Clip View (shown here) and Timeline View.
