Chapter 7. Refining the Program > Working with Links

Working with Links

As you learned in earlier chapters, a linked clip contains both video and audio. Though the video and audio portions of the clip appear in different tracks of the timeline, a link between the two portions of the clip helps maintain their synchronized relationship. As long as synch mode is set to linked, both tracks of linked clips move together and are trimmed by the same amount. (See “Using Linked Clips” in Chapter 6.)

At times, however, you want to manipulate the two parts of a linked clip separately. You might want to employ a traditional editing technique called the split edit or L-cut. Sometimes, you want to break the link altogether, so that the video and audio can be manipulated independently. Or you may want to create a link between audio and video clips that weren’t captured together. In film production, for example, the image and sound are recorded separately. After they are digitized, you can create a link to synchronize the two elements in the timeline.
