Chapter 5. Editing Clips into a Sequence

Chapter 5. Editing Clips into a Sequence

You may have heard film editing referred to as cutting or joining. Before the days of digital video, strips of film were cut and spliced. The term you prefer might say something about your attitude toward editing. Literally speaking, of course, editing involves both cutting and joining clips.

Editing can be reduced to two simple tasks: defining the part of the clip you want to use, and adding it to a particular point in the sequence. To define the parts of the clip you want to use, you’ll learn how to use the Monitor window to view clips and set edit marks—important points in the clip, including where you want it to start and end. To assemble the clips into a sequence, you’ll learn how to drag and drop clips to the timeline or employ an automated method. Keep this simple two-step model in mind as you progress through the tasks in this chapter. Sometimes, the number of choices can make the process seem more complex than it really is.
