Chapter 5. Editing Clips into a Sequence > Comparing Overlay and Insert Edits

Comparing Overlay and Insert Edits

Whenever you add a clip to a sequence, you must determine how the new clip affects the clips already in the sequence. Specifically, you must specify whether to replace material with an overlay edit or shift material with an insert edit.

An insert edit works much like adding a clip using film, inserting the new clip without removing material that is already in the program reel. When you insert a clip, the source clip is added at the designated point in the timeline, and subsequent clips are shifted later in time to make room for the new clip. If the insertion point in the sequence occurs at a point where clips already occupy the timeline, the clips in the timeline are split, and the portions after the edit are shifted later in time (Figures 5.44 and 5.45).
