You're ready to start making your movie, so we have got to add some clips into the Sceneline. To add clips to the Sceneline, it's really simple. Adobe actually tells you drag next clip here. So let's go into our folder here in Dancing and let's pick some footage. I'll just click and drag. It automatically creates a new one. I'm going to click and drag another one. I am going to scroll down, click and drag a third one. Now as you can see, this is a pretty cool thing. It shows you that this piece of media has been used in your project, and it's been used one time. So this is important where if you want to delete excess media, you can delete that, but you know it's not been used, and you won't delete something that's being used.
So I have got three pieces of media here, and I'm going to go up into the monitor and drag to the left. And if you notice, if I click and drag and let go, it automatically scales out and provides me with these two handles, which allow me to trim my media, and we'll talk about that in another video. When I scroll to the right it crosses the line, it zooms it out again. So it's always telling you where you are and how you can trim things.
Now, if I wanted to delete a clip, I just need to go over, maybe I don't want the middle one, just go over that clip, press the Delete key, and it goes away. And I am going to press Command+Z to undo that. Now what if I would like to have the first clip actually be at the end? Well, that's pretty simple too. I'm just going to click, hold, and drag and you'll see a little icon that goes over the arrow button, and now it's highlighting blue right here. So it is showing me I'm moving it there, and there it is, and we look at the beginning.
This one moved up, this one moved up, and this one took the spot of last one. So adding, arranging, and deleting clips within the Sceneline is very simple in Premiere Elements.
