Once you're in your timeline, you are going to want to be able to control playback, moving forward and backwards, jumping around. There are several buttons to make this easier. The most logical one is the Play button, which will play the timeline forward. Let's go ahead and mute the audio first, so we're just focusing on playback, and you see it plays forward. Clicking it again will stop playback. You then have the ability to go backwards one frame at a time, or forward one frame at a time. Adding the Shift key will jump you back in larger increments. Notice it's going one second at a time. So you can switch between single frames, or whole seconds, just by using the Shift key.
If you want to quickly jump back to the beginning, go ahead and click this button here, to go to the first frame for the track you're on, and that's a nice way to jump back to the home position. The other buttons include the ability to Split a clip or add a Transition, and we'll explore those more in just a moment.
