Up until now, you have been placing clips side by side in the Timeline, building horizontally or sequentially in time. In this lesson, you will learn how to lay clips on top of each other to build vertically, or at the same moment in time. By layering clips over one another and allowing them to blend together, you create a composite image that shows a portion of all the original clips displayed at the same time. You see many examples of this on TV. The weather person is shot against a blue or green screen as the foreground image, and a weather map is composited behind the person as the background image. There are several ways you can composite clips together. In this lesson, you will build vertically in the Timeline to create visual composite images using different filters, modes, and generated items.
