Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Choosing Source and Target Tracks

Choosing Source and Target Tracks

Video and audio material are often described as discrete tracks of information due to the way that they are physically stored on traditional media, such as magnetic tape. Digital files don’t encode video and audio in the same way that tape does, of course. Nevertheless, it’s still helpful to think of video and audio as occupying tracks that you can manipulate separately.

In Premiere’s timeline, video and audio tracks are represented as separate horizontal rows stacked below a time ruler (Figure 5.3). By selecting source and target tracks, you can add video, audio, or both to any combination of tracks in the timeline.
