Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Playing the Program in the Timeline

Playing the Program in the Timeline

In Chapter 4, you learned to use playback controls in the Monitor window to cue the current frame of the program. In the timeline, the current frame of the program is indicated by the edit line, a small triangular indicator with a vertical line extending from it. In addition to using the playback controls in the Monitor window, you can change the current time of the program by moving the edit line directly.

To cue the edit line:

  • Do one of the following:

    • In the Timeline window, click the time ruler to move the edit line to that point in the timeline (Figure 6.35).

      Figure 6.35. Click the time ruler to move the edit line to that point in the timeline. In this figure, the edit line appears at the fourth unnumbered marker in the music clip.

    • In the Navigator palette, hold down the Shift key while you drag in the Navigator’s miniature timeline (Figure 6.36).

    • In the Navigator palette, highlight the timecode readout and then enter a new timecode (Figure 6.37).

    • In the program view, use the playback controls (or a keyboard shortcut) to cue the current program frame. (See “Using Playback Controls” in Chapter 4.)
