Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Editing by Dragging

Editing by Dragging

You can move clips in the timeline much as you’d rearrange clips of film; you can drag and move each clip almost as though it were a physical object. But, obviously, clips aren’t bits of celluloid, so they aren’t constrained by the laws of the physical world. In Premiere Elements, you aren’t limited to rearranging clips like so many building blocks. Moving a clip from its current position either clears or ripple-deletes the clip; placing it somewhere new performs an overlay or insert edit (Figures 6.64, 6.65, 6.66, 6.67, and 6.68). When you exchange or swap the positions of two clips, it’s known as a recycle edit or rearrange edit. (See “Comparing Insert and Overlay Edits,” in Chapter 5, and “Removing Clips and Gaps from the Sequence,” earlier in this chapter.)

Figure 6.64. This figure shows the sequence before the edit. The selected clip will be moved back in time.
