Lesson 5. Adding Audio > Overlaying video without sound

Overlaying video without sound

Now that you have positioned and synchronized the second walking clip to the audio, you'll overlay additional clips that don't need to be synchronized and that don't have audio linked to them. As before, you'll place clips in the Video 1A track. The audio from Feet1.mov will continue to play underneath.

1.
In the Project window, hold down the Control key (Windows) or the Shift key (MacOS) and click Hall2.mov, Man.mov, Woman1.mov, and Woman2.mov, to select them all. Then drag them to the Source view in the Monitors window.



Note

A clip in the Timeline can include the clip name, but it may not be displayed if the clip is too short or if you select the track format that does not include a name. To see the name of a clip in the Timeline, click the Timeline title bar to activate it, if necessary, and then simply position the pointer on the clip

2.
From the Source menu below the Source view, select Woman1.mov.

The Woman1.mov clip appears in the Source view.

3.
Click the Play button ( ) to preview the clip.

4.
Drag the Timeline scroll box to display the center of the Feet2.mov clip.

5.
Drag the Woman1.mov clip from the Source view into the Video1A track, so that it ends at the beginning of the Feet2.mov clip you inserted earlier.



6.
From the Source menu, select Woman2.mov, and then click the Play button to preview it.

7.
Drag the Woman2.mov clip from the Source view into the Video1A track, positioning it at the end of the Feet2.mov clip.



You now have three clips covering part of Feet1.mov. At this point, we want to let some of Feet1.mov "show through," so we'll place the next clip so that it starts a few seconds after the end of Woman2.mov.

8.
In the lower left corner of the Timeline window, choose 1 second from the time units pop-up menu.

9.
From the Source menu, select Hall2.mov, and then click the Play button to preview it.

10.
Drag the edit line in the Timeline to 19:00.

11.
Drag the Hall2.mov clip into the Video1A track and let its beginning snap to the edit line.



You can now insert the last clip of the video.

12.
Select Man.mov from the Source menu, and then preview it.

13.
Drag the Man.mov clip into the Video1A track at the end of the previous clip.



Now let's look at a preview of the entire project.

14.
Extend the work area bar to span the entire project, and then press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS).

15.
To clean up the Timeline, click the arrow next to Video 1A track to collapse the video track.

The clips in the video track look as if they were all placed in a single track. You can click the arrow again at any time to work with the clips on the Video 1A and Video 1B tracks.

16.
Save the project.
