Lesson 3. Basic Editing > Review questions

Review questions

1: What are two ways to add clips to the Timeline?
A1: Dragging clips into the Timeline from the Project window, and opening and trimming clips in the Source view, and then inserting or overlaying them into the Timeline.
2: Which method of assembling clips is best suited to creating a rough cut?
A2: Dragging clips into the Timeline from the Project window. This method lets you quickly assemble clips, and editing is not usually critical at this stage.
3: What are two ways to preview clips in your project?
A3: Scrubbing in the Timeline ruler, and pressing the Play button ( ).
4: How does the insert function differ from the overlay function?
A4: Inserting affects the project duration but doesn't trim any material, in contrast to overlaying, which trims material but preserves the project duration.
5: The ripple edit and the rolling edit both affect a sequence of clips in some way. Which one cannot be used with untrimmed clips, and why?
A5: The rolling edit cannot be used with untrimmed clips because as one clip is shortened, the adjacent clip is extended, which can happen only if the clip has previously been trimmed to shorten it.
