Having trouble doing a drag edit in the timeline

Feb 22, 2013 2:09 PM

Classroom in a book says I should be able to hold the Option key (on the Mac) drag a clip to another point in the timeline, and release it to inserting the clip into the timeline. What's happening for me is that when I Option-drag I'm disconnecting the video from the audio, which is not what the book illusrates. Any insight into how to do this kind of edit with drag and drop would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks.

    I think that is a little mistake in the book.

    Just drag and drop without the option key or any key.

    With option key it will separate audio from video as you have experienced.

    Tom,

     

    Exactly what would you like to have happen, when dragging a Clip from the Project Panel to the Timeline, and especially if placing it between Clips already on the Timeline?

     

    Good luck,

    Do you mean inserting a Clip between existing Clips, and having everything to the right move over, to allow for that Clip?

     

    If so, then Ann has your answer in Reply # 1.

     

    Good luck,

    If you just want to move one clip and the rest should hold still, hold ctrl or place in a superimposed track.
