Chapter 3. Editing Fundamentals > The Concept of Lift Versus Extract

The Concept of Lift Versus Extract

Being an editor is a power position. You can give (add clips to the timeline) just as easily as you can take (remove clips from the timeline). Lift and extract work as the complete inverse of insert and overlay.

With lift, you mark the portion of your timeline (with in and out points and the desired tracks) that you want to remove. Overlay covers up whatever is in the timeline without altering any of the shots outside that marked area, but lift does just the opposite. Lift removes the portion that is marked without affecting any of the shots outside the marked area, as shown in Figure 3.8. This leaves a blank area in your timeline, holding the duration of the area where the clip(s) previously existed.
