Lesson 1. Getting to Know the Work Area > Navigating to a specific time

Navigating to a specific time

The edit line in the Timeline window indicates the frame displayed in the Program view in the Monitor window and the point in time where the next edit will apply when using a command or a control in the Monitor window. Using the Program controller affects the Timeline, and editing the Timeline updates the Program view.

1.
In the Timeline window, click in the ruler at the top of the window or drag in the ruler to move the edit line right or left (a technique called scrubbing). Both the Program view and the timecode display below the Program view change to represent the current frame.



You may have noticed that when the Program view changed, the only frames visible were those of the topmost clips in the Timeline. Simply dragging the edit line doesn't display opacity, transitions, or filter effects. You can view those effects using another method.

2.
Hold down Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS) as you drag in the ruler. There may be a slight delay as effects are processed.

Note

You must press and Alt/Option key before you begin dragging in the ruler.

Now the Program view displays frames with opacity, transitions, and effects of filters you've applied to a clip.
