Lesson 4. Basic Editing > Working with clips in the Timeline

Working with clips in the Timeline

You will now add one of the two clips you imported from the Tape 02 folder to the end of your project.

1.
Double-click on the clip Tape2_01.avi to load it into the Monitor window. Press the Play button to preview this clip of a boy on a tricycle.

2.
Place your cursor over the clip in the Monitor window and drag it into the timeline window to the end of your project, to where the current-time indicator is located. The clip will snap to the end of the last clip.

A. Media window. B. Monitor window. C. How To window. D. Timeline window.

3.
Click and drag the current-time indicator to the left to the 11 second mark (00;00;11;02), and press the spacebar. The second clip in the project is obviously footage recorded by accident and needs to be deleted.

4.
Select the second clip Birthday500 02.avi in the Timeline and press your Delete or Backspace key to remove it. Notice all the subsequent clips automatically shift to the left to fill the space left by the deletion of the clip. This is the default behavior when deleting clips in Premiere Elements and is called a ripple delete.

5.
Choose Edit > Undo to undo the last step. Right-click on the same clip Birthday500 02.avi and from the context menu that appears, choose the ripple delete option to perform the same operation from step 4. Premiere Elements provides many shortcuts to common operations with the right-click.
