Creating overlay and insert edits

Video: Creating overlay and insert edits

Previously in this training series we have looked at basic edits. Basic trimming where we're cropping off some of the beginning or some of the end of a clip, and that's probably what you'll do most of the time with clips. But there are a wide variety of different types of edits that you can perform. We're going to look at two of the most basic in this movie, Overlay and Insert. Now to give you the setup of our project here, in our Timeline we have two clips. We have this cool clip of flowers, and then we have this cool clip of the inside of the flower shop. Now at the end of this flower clip, basically it freezes for a second and then a door closes and we want to get rid of that, and we also don't need the beginning the flower shop here.

Creating overlay and insert edits

Previously in this training series we have looked at basic edits. Basic trimming where we're cropping off some of the beginning or some of the end of a clip, and that's probably what you'll do most of the time with clips. But there are a wide variety of different types of edits that you can perform. We're going to look at two of the most basic in this movie, Overlay and Insert. Now to give you the setup of our project here, in our Timeline we have two clips. We have this cool clip of flowers, and then we have this cool clip of the inside of the flower shop. Now at the end of this flower clip, basically it freezes for a second and then a door closes and we want to get rid of that, and we also don't need the beginning the flower shop here.

So what I want to do is bring in this clip of the owner talking and I wanted to overlay and get rid off some of this junk at end of the flower clip and the beginning of the merged clip. We can actually do that from the Source Monitor. So what I've done here is I'm going to line this up in time. I want this to be at 10 seconds and 13 frames in, is where I want this edit to happen. So I'm going to line up my Current Time Indicator there, and in the Source Monitor I have set an out point for 11 seconds and 14 frames in, and we just want the first 11 seconds and 14 frames.

By the way, as you are scrubbing through and navigating the Source Monitor, we have these two controls here. We have a jog wheel, so if you want to slowly go through the clip and you could look at it frame by frame a little slower than you would by playing it, you can do that. You can go backwards by dragging it to left or right, and then right above it, if you want to go a little bit faster, instead of jogging we can shuttle. So if we drag this to the right, we're going to go forward in time and it's going to go slowly as we move a little bit to the left, a little bit to the right. As we move more to the right, it's going to go faster.

Likewise, we could also take this to the left and again, as we move a little bit to the left it's going to go slowly backwards, and as we move farther to the left, it's going to go backwards more quickly. So as you can see, sometimes it takes a second to initialize, but these are both good ways to navigate around your footage. So now that we have the section that we want, we have a few options and I didn't mention this in the last video, but we could also take just the video by dragging this icon to our Timeline. We could also take just the audio by dragging the speaker icon to our Timeline.

But what I wanted is these two buttons right here. This is what I'm interested in. Now we have the Insert edit and the Overlay edit. First let's talk about the Insert edit. As you could see from the icon here, it looks like its cutting something in half and then putting itself into the space. That's exactly what this is going to do. If I were to click this Insert button, what it does is that it will split the footage at the Current Time Indicator, and put the clip from the Source Monitor there. So what it did is we had the Fridge clip, and then it cuts in to the footage we just inserted in here and then there is the remainder of the flower clip.

So there's the stuff that we don't want, and then we still have all of the store stuff that we don't want. So I'm actually going to undo that. But that's what an Insert edit does, and it is very helpful for when you don't wan to replace footage, but you actually want to make way for it. You want to create a wedge and stick the footage in that wedge. But I'm going to put this Overlay Edit on now, and you could see that there's a Down arrow on top of stuff that's already there, and that's what this is going to do. This is going to replace what is there. So as I click the Overlay edit, you'll notice that the time changed last time because we actually inserted this and everything moved over to the right, or later in time in other words.

And so it actually changed the duration of our program, the Insert edit did. The Overlay edit is not going to change the duration of our program. It's still going to end here. It's going to replace what is there for 11 seconds and 14 frames. So I'll click this button now and there you have it. So now we have the footage of the flowers, then the interview with the woman, and then we have the part of the flower clip that we want. And again, because Overlay edits replace content, it does not change the length of the program as we saw with the Insert edit.
