Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline

Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline

In the Timeline window, the sequence looks a lot like edited film. Unlike film, however, the timeline allows you to view any segment of the sequence instantly or to view the entire sequence. The timeline isn’t simply another way to look at or navigate through the sequence; it also gives you a way to edit. Editing in the timeline can feel almost as tactile as editing film but can be far more flexible and efficient than using razors and tape.

You’ll start by concentrating on manipulating clips as discrete objects in the timeline. You’ll learn how to select and group clips; move them; disable and delete them; split, copy, and paste them; and alter their playback speed. And just as you assembled the sequence using a combination of insert and overlay edits, you can rearrange and refine the clips in a sequence using comparable techniques—this time by dragging the sequence’s clips in the Timeline window. You’ll further fine-tune edits by making adjustments to the In and Out points of the clips in the sequence—a process known as trimming.
