Chapter 6. Editing in the Timeline > Playing the Sequence in the Timeline

Playing the Sequence in the Timeline

In the Timeline window, a small blue triangle in the time ruler, the CTI, looks and works like its counterpart in the Monitor window’s Timeline view. However, a vertical line extends from the Timeline window’s CTI through the tracks of the sequence. This way, it’s easy to see the current frame in relationship to the clips in the sequence. Furthermore, the vertical line makes it even easier to align clips with the CTI, and vice versa.

You can cue the Timeline window’s CTI by clicking or dragging in the time ruler or by using the Timeline window’s time display. If you press Shift while dragging the CTI, the CTI more readily aligns, or snaps to the edges of clips and with markers. (See “Using the Snapping Feature,” later in this chapter.) Or, you can use buttons in the Monitor window’s Timeline view to cue the CTI to the previous or next edit, the point between two clips or the point directly before or after a clip in a track.
