Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Understanding Insert Edits

Understanding Insert Edits

When you perform an insert edit, clips in the program shift later in time to accommodate the new clip. Several factors determine how the clips shift and which tracks are affected. Your choice of source and target tracks can affect how an insert edit works (see "Choosing Source and Target Tracks" earlier in this chapter). In addition, you can choose to lock or unlock tracks (see "Locking and Unlocking Tracks" in Chapter 6). The primary factor that governs how insert edits work, however, is the shift tracks option. (To learn more about the Timeline window options, see "Customizing the Timeline" in Chapter 6.)

When you set the shift tracks option to shift material in all unlocked tracks, an insert edit causes clips in all tracks of the timeline to move later in time (Figures 5.21 and 5.22). Only locked tracks are immune to insert edits (see "Locking and Unlocking Tracks" in Chapter 6). This is usually the best choice, because shifting all the material ensures that you maintain the clips'relative position in time and maintain synch between video and audio.
