Hour 4. Using the Storyboard and Timelin... > Manipulating Clips in the Timeline

Manipulating Clips in the Timeline

One of the beauties of nonlinear editors is how easy it is to add clips anywhere in the project, move them around, remove them altogether, or change their lengths. Here's how you do all that.

Moving a Clip

Make sure your cursor icon is a little arrow (the Selection tool). If not, move your cursor to the upper-left corner of the timeline and click the arrow button (see Figure 4.19). You'll use this frequently enough such that you might as well learn the keyboard short cut--press the V key to change your cursor to the Selection tool (note that the Timeline must be highlighted as the active window for this keyboard shortcut to work).
