Performing Splice-in and Overwrite Edits

Splice-in and overwrite edits are the two most commonly used types of edits used in Xpress Pro to get clips into your sequence.

  • Splice-in: Edits a clip or other object into the Timeline without replacing or overwriting anything. Instead, it inserts the clip into your sequence, pushing everything to the right of its insertion point, down the Timeline. A splice-in edit adds to the overall duration of the sequence and can therefore affect audio-video sync (Figure 6.21).

    Figure 6.21. When you mark a point in the Timeline (above) and select Splice-In everything on selected tracks in the Timeline makes room for the incoming segment (below).

  • Overwrite: Edits a clip into the Timeline and replaces anything in its way by overwriting it. Nothing gets pushed down the Timeline, and the overall duration of the sequence remains unchanged (Figure 6.22).

    Figure 6.22. When you mark a point in the Timeline (above) and select Overwrite anything in the incoming clip's way is overwritten in the Timeline (below).
