Chapter 6. Making Edits

Chapter 6. Making Edits

Starting with basic overwrite and splice-in edits, this chapter covers the classic Editing 101 topics as well as advanced techniques—replace edits, fit-to-fill edits, back-timed edits, split edits, clip grouping, and so on—for experienced cutters. This is the meat and potatoes of learning Xpress Pro: actual editing.

You may find yourself leaning toward one of the two editing styles available in Xpress Pro: the keyboard command approach or the drag-and-drop method. Either way you go, you'll find that, as with any NLE, Xpress Pro has its idiosyncrasies. For example, Xpress Pro tracks are not sync-locked by default. Selecting and moving segments in the Timeline requires you to use one of two Segment modes. And black filler frames aren't simply pieces of nothing; they behave like segments.
