Chapter 5. Basic Editing > Working with Snapping

Working with Snapping

As discussed in Chapter 3, snapping allows quick and precise moves to edit points and more with the position indicator. You can activate this feature by pressing N or by clicking it in the upper-right corner of the Timeline window. This feature also allows you to snap clips. You drag them from either the Viewer or the Browser directly to the sequence so that they are placed immediately next to clips already in your sequence. Dragging clips to the sequence with snapping activated leaves no space between them when you drop these clips with the snapping triangles activated.

Take a look at Figure 5.11 to see how the snapping indicators (the brown triangles at the edit point) look with this feature turned on and a clip being dragged into position next to another clip already in the sequence. Notice the Rollover tool that appears when you drag a clip into a sequence. The one in the figure indicates an overwrite edit.
