Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Performing an Edit

Performing an Edit

Now that you understand the essential concepts behind an edit, it's time to put them into practice.

To perform a three-point edit:

1.
View a source clip in the source view of the Monitor window.

2.
Specify the tracks you want to use by clicking either of the following buttons:

Take video—to use the source video in the program.

Take audio—to use the source audio in the program (Figure 5.26).

Figure 5.26. View a clip in source view, and select the source tracks you want to use.


3.
In the program view, choose the target tracks from the corresponding Target pull-down menus (Figure 5.27).

Figure 5.27. Choose target tracks from the Target pull-down menus of the program view.


Choose None to exclude the video or audio track from being affected.

4.
Set any combination of three in and out points in the source and program views (Figure 5.28).

Figure 5.28. Set at least three in and out points. Here, a source in point, a source out point and a program in point are set.


Program in and out points appear both in the program-view controller and in the timeline. (See "Setting Edit Marks" in Chapter 4.)

5.
To determine how an insert edit affects clips in the timeline, toggle the shift tracks button to display the appropriate icon (Figure 5.29):

Figure 5.29. For insert edits, set the shift tracks option. Here, shift material in all tracks is selected.


to shift material in all unlocked tracks.

to shift material only in target tracks.

6.
In the source view, click the button for the type of edit you want to perform (Figure 5.30):

Figure 5.30. In the source view, click insert or overlay. Here, an overlay edit is being performed.


Insert—to shift subsequent clips in the timeline by the number of frames added to the program.

Overlay—to overwrite, or replace, the frames already in the program with the new frames.

The clip appears in the timeline in the position and tracks you specified (Figure 5.31). The edit line in the timeline window (which corresponds to the current frame of the program view) is cued to the end of the clip. The tracks that are affected by insert edits are determined by the shift tracks setting (see "Understanding Insert Edits" earlier in this chapter).
