Chapter 5. Creating a Program > Insert and Overlay

Insert and Overlay

The Monitor window controls include two methods for performing three- and four-point edits: insert and overlay. These methods determine how the new clip affects the clips that are already in the program.

An insert edit works much like adding a clip using film, inserting the new clip without removing material that is already in the program reel. When you insert a clip, the source clip is added at the designated point in the timeline, and all the subsequent clips are shifted later in time to make room for the new clip. If the insertion point in the program occurs at a point where clips already occupy the timeline, the clips in the timeline are split, and the portions after the edit are shifted later in time (Figures 5.18 and 5.19). Whether clips are shifted in all tracks or only in selected tracks is determined by the Shift Tracks option, explained in the next section.
