Lesson 3. Drag-and-Drop Editing > Snapping to the Playhead

Snapping to the Playhead

When you made Overwrite and Insert edits in the previous lesson, you moved the playhead in the Timeline to where you wanted to place the new clip. This is not required when you drag a clip into the Timeline. You can place a new clip wherever you choose to drop it, regardless of the playhead position.

However, a clip will snap to the playhead when you move past it as long as snapping is active. Using the snapping function to snap a clip to the playhead will ensure that you position your clip exactly where you want. The Snapping button is located in the upper-right corner of the Timeline button bar and can be toggled off or on any time during the editing process.
