Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Using Drag-and-Drop Editing

Using Drag-and-Drop Editing

Wherever a source clip appears in Premiere, chances are that you can use the mouse to drag it into the timeline.

To add a clip to the timeline from the source view or clip window:

1.
Open a clip in the source view of the Monitor window or in a separate clip window.

2.
Set the in point and out point in the source clip (Figure 5.10).

Figure 5.10. In the source view or clip window, set an in point and an out point, and select source tracks.


You may also want to set numbered or unnumbered markers. See “Setting Editing Marks” in Chapter 4, “Editing Source Clips.”

3.
To set the source tracks, do either of the following:

  • To include the source video, set the take video button so that the icon shows. To exclude source video, toggle off the take video button so that the icon is crossed out.

  • To include the source audio, set the take audio button so that the icon shows. To exclude source audio, toggle off the take audio button so that the icon is crossed out. (See “Choosing Source and Target Tracks” earlier in this chapter.)

4.
Drag the clip from the source view or clip window to an unused portion of the timeline’s video or audio track (Figure 5.11).

Figure 5.11. Drag the clip to an unoccupied track in the timeline.


Clips containing video or both video and audio must be dragged to an empty video track; clips containing audio only must be dragged to an audio track.
