Lesson 4. Basic Editing > Navigating the Timeline

Navigating the Timeline

As you become familiar with your footage, you will want to jump to certain sections of your footage quickly. Be sure you have reviewed the “Working with the Timeline window section of Lesson 3 to make sure you understand how to navigate through your timeline. In this exercise, you will navigate to the end of your project in order to add the two clips you imported from the Tape 02 folder.

1.
Click on the Timeline window to make it active.

2.
Click in the timeline ruler at the 32;00 mark to move your current-time indicator to your cursor location. This is an effective way to jump to a general time in your project, however it is usually not precise enough to locate a specific edit point in your project.

3.
Press the PageUp key on your keyboard and your current-time indicator will move to the last edit point at 29;18. PageUp is the keyboard shortcut for Go to the Previous Edit Point.

4.
Press the PageDown key on your keyboard and your current-time indicator will move to the next edit point. PageDown is the keyboard shortcut for Go to the Next Edit Point. Press the PageDown key six more times to move your current-time indicator to the end of the project.

5.
Press the Home key to move the current-time indicator to the first frame of the project.

6.
Press the End key to move the current-time indicator to the last frame of the project. Learning these keyboard shortcuts will vastly improve the efficiency of your editing.
