Chapter 6. Layer Editing

Chapter 6. Layer Editing

The term editing, in the sense that film and video makers use it, refers to the order and arrangement of images in time. Implicit in this definition, of course, is the term's broader meaning: to include some elements while excluding others to achieve a desired aesthetic effect. In this chapter we focus on editing the layers of a composition—defining which segments to include and the order in which to present them.

You'll learn basic editing functions and terms such as In point, Out point, duration, and trimming. And you'll also learn other techniques common to nonlinear editing, such as setting markers and controlling the playback speed and direction of layers. In the process, you'll get acquainted with the Layer window and take a closer look at the time graph of the Timeline window.
