Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Using the Snapping Feature

Using the Snapping Feature

When you move clips in the timeline, you usually want to align them precisely. When assembling a sequence, for example, you want to drag clips so that they butt up against one another without overlapping with another clip or leaving a gap. When you’re placing a sound effect, you may want to align a marker in a video clip with a marker in an audio clip. Or you may want to move a clip to exactly where you placed the CTI.

The timeline provides an easy way to align clips through a feature called snapping. When you activate snapping, clips behave as though they’re magnetized; they tend to snap to the edge of another clip, to a marker, and to the CTI. A vertical line with black arrows, or snap line, confirms that elements are flush (Figure 6.62).
