Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Using Snap to Edges

Using Snap to Edges

When you move clips in the timeline, you usually want to align them precisely. In a sequence of clips in a single track, alignment usually isn't a problem: you can easily drag clips to butt up against one another. At times, however, aligning clips isn't as straightforward. You may want a title in video track 2 to start right after the clip in track 1 ends, for example. When you are placing a sound effect, you may want to align a marker in a video clip with a marker in an audio clip. Or you may want to move a clip to exactly where you placed the edit line.

When you create transitions in an A/B workspace, the proper alignment of clips is critical. Unless you zoom in for a very close view of the program or continually consult the Info window, precise placement of clips in the timeline can be difficult (Figures 6.68 and 6.69).
