So once you get a bunch of clips in your timeline, it's inevitable you're going to want to move them around. And it's very easy to do. It's actually very intuitive. It's simply dragging and dropping and really I just want to focus on a couple of things that could be gotchas. I can grab any clip I want and just slide it left or right, or even up and down if I need to. Now, what's important to know is that I can move a clip over another clip. So if I wanted to switch positions, and it's also important to know that when I get close to another clip, it will naturally snap to the clip next to it. And this is really important to understand because it keeps you from accidentally writing over the end of a clip and also keeps you from having that extra frame of black video that will pop up when you just don't want it. Now, if this is not working, that means somehow you've turned snapping off and that's simply by pressing the S key.
And this happens all the time. You hit a key by accident and you deactivate it. Now, if I bring my clip really close to the other clip, no magnetism at all. And now I'm at risk of having a flash frame, or even overriding the clip that I'm next to. So keep your eyes open, and make sure that if you want snapping on, you see those magnets. And if it's off, simply hit the S key to make it work again.
