Basic Edits

Avid Xpress Pro allows you to perform two kinds of edits, overwrite and splice. Each of these edits performs very different functions. Overwrite edits are very similar to insert or assemble edits found in linear editing. A splice edit is very similar to a film-style edit, whereby two edits are separated and a clip is spliced in between. The next sections look at each edit in more detail.

Overwrite Edits

To perform an overwrite, you simply mark an IN point and OUT point on your source side monitor. Click the Overwrite button, which is mapped in between the source and record screens (see Figure 3.15). As a default, it is the B key on your keyboard.
