If you like to change the position of a clip, in other words, where it appears in the Program Monitor, it's pretty easy. All you have to do is simply click on it, and then once it's highlighted, you'll get this effect control point, they call it. It's a little circle with a plus in the middle, and you'll get this bounding box around the boundaries of the clip. Then we could just click-and-drag and move that wherever we feel like, even off screen if we want to. If we want to animate this coming on, which I'll show how to do later in this training series, we can do that. Now, I could also click-and- drag this clip and move this over.
So if I want to create kind of like a 24 effect, so I have just one little clip here and then maybe another clip over there, I can do that. You'll notice that once I have one clip selected, it's really hard to click and select the Explore California layer. I almost have to click away to deselect and then click again to select the Explore California clip. That kind of bothers me. So what I'm going to do is come down here to video track 1 and in this little blank spot here, I'm going to click, which is going to lock video track 1.
So it's no longer selectable. I can click all day and I'm not going to inadvertently select or even edit video track 1. Notice that it doesn't just lock the clip. It locks everything on that track. So, if you want to select a layer and move it around, it's just that easy.
