Chapter 5. Editing Clips into a Sequence > Comparing Editing Methods

Comparing Editing Methods

You can add clips to a sequence in two ways. You can drag them to the Timeline window and assemble a sequence in a manner akin to splicing film (albeit much faster). Alternatively, you can use the Media window to plan the sequence in storyboard fashion, and have Premiere Elements execute your plan automatically. Or you can combine the two methods.

Drag-and-drop editing

The drag-and-drop method takes advantage of the computer’s ability to display clips as objects that you can move and place using the mouse (Figure 5.24). You’ll find that dragging and dropping clips to the timeline is both intuitive and reassuringly similar to the way the operating system works. Moreover, you can apply the same principles and techniques to refine and rearrange clips in the Timeline window (fully explained in Chapter 6, “Editing in the Timeline”).
