1. Assembling the Timeline  > Building the Story Framework

Building the Story Framework

When it comes to adding material to a timeline, there are two different approaches you can take. The first is the classical source-to-record process where a clip is loaded into the source monitor, marks are made, a location for the edit is selected in the timeline, and then the desired material is added to the timeline. The second is by selecting a clip or clips in a bin, then dragging them to the desired location in the timeline. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. You could, if you wished, build your entire sequence using only one of these two techniques. But if you really want to master the tools that Avid provides you with, you should become comfortable with both.
