Chapter 3. Editing Fundamentals > Viewing More Than One Track

Viewing More Than One Track

In Premiere (or just about any nonlinear editing system), after you add a video clip to Track 2, it automatically covers the portion of the clip below in Track 1 when played. Think of the playback indicator line as a camera, reading the images from the uppermost track on down as it moves across the timeline (see Figure 3.16). To see the clip below, you must alter the clip on the upper track by adding an effect (such as Picture-in-Picture) or change the level of opacity.

Figure 3.16. When no effects are added, Premiere plays back the video clip on the highest track, covering any clips in lower tracks.
