Video: Adding, arranging, and deleting clips in the Timeline

Adding, arranging, and deleting clips in the Timeline is very simple as well. Let's go into our Video folder here and pick some video. And to add it to the Timeline, all I need to do is hold and drag it and there it goes. There is one and if you notice, and you're in the List view, you'll see a really cool check mark. Well, it's probably not that cool, but it says it's been used and how many times. One time. Well, I add it again here. That's two times. So let's revert, press Command+Z to get out of that, so back to one time.

Adding, arranging, and deleting clips in the Timeline

Adding, arranging, and deleting clips in the Timeline is very simple as well. Let's go into our Video folder here and pick some video. And to add it to the Timeline, all I need to do is hold and drag it and there it goes. There is one and if you notice, and you're in the List view, you'll see a really cool check mark. Well, it's probably not that cool, but it says it's been used and how many times. One time. Well, I add it again here. That's two times. So let's revert, press Command+Z to get out of that, so back to one time.

Take another piece of footage, drag it here. And you notice when I'm dragging there is a little gap that I have in between here. Well, I might not want that, so how do I get rid of it? I right-click. I choose Delete and Close Gap. I'll do that here as well. You can save yourself that hassle by just getting a clip, dragging it, and then looking for it to snap to the other clip and let go. So now it's snapped. Now it's easy to add cutaways. So for example, if we were watching this video here, I might want to talk about the building. I can drag this piece of footage, put it on video layer 2, and now if I press play, we see the girls getting ready to dance, and then it goes into a cutaway of the Dance Arts place.

I can also drag some footage and place it within the clip, inserting it there, and it basically will cut the clip into two pieces and put that new footage in there. And it does the same thing as the cutaway we did earlier, but it does cut the clip in two and you may not want that, because later, on what if you say No, I don't want a cutaway, so you can just click on it, press the Delete key. But if I press the Delete here, I've got a gap. So unless you're definite that you want to use that piece of footage, I would recommend not using the insert like that.

Deleting clips, like I said, you just highlight what you want, press the Delete key. You can also highlight what you want, right-click, and choose Cut, and it'll ripple edit for you, which means it's going to close the gap on its own. Let me just redo that and show you: right-click, Cut, and you see how it moved over? But like I said, because it made a cut here, it changed the dynamic of this clip. This is now a shorter clip and it doesn't seamlessly go through. Now what if I wanted to change the order of clips? Well, that's easy too. Let's just zoom out. And I might want to this clip now to be at the end, so I can click-- actually we'll use this clip that I cut.

We're going to click and drag this one to the left, and I'm going to let go. See how it's snapping right there with the little arrows. Now that's snapped over and moved this one to the right and left me a gap here, so I just need to go in, right-click, Delete and Close Gap, and it closed it. I am going to press Command+Z to undo all this. I can drag this clip to the very end by clicking and dragging, letting go. It leaves another gap. I can right- click, Delete and Close Gap. So it's really simple to arrange, add, and delete clips.

You have a lot of options using the Sceneline or the Timeline.
