When you say you "place the cursor on the portion" you wish to copy -- do you mean that you've have selected the video clip on your timeline? Simply having the CTI playhead over the clip won't copy it.
Yes I have also selected it and it becomes light blue. Then I do ctrl c,
place the cursor where I want to add the track, and cntrl v, but it does not copy and insert the clip into the timeline.
Can someone give me steps on adding these clips to my video? Thank you.
I'm not sure why it's not working for you, Prsv. It works for me. (Though I made sure to move the CTI playhead to a spot beyond the end of my movie before I pressed Ctrl+v.)
Meantime, try this. Select a clip on your timeline, then go to the program's Edit menu and select Copy. Then move the CTI to end of your movie, go to the Edit menu and select Paste.
