Chapter 6. Creating a Sequence

6. Creating a Sequence

You may have heard film editing referred to as cutting. This, of course, refers to the fact that you literally cut the work print of a film. In some circles, however, editing is called joining, which refers to the process of splicing film segments together. Literally speaking, editing involves both cutting and joining clips. You select portions of the source footage and arrange them into one or more sequences.

The basic editing methods covered in this chapter fall into the following categories: drag-and-drop editing; editing with the controls in the Source and Program Monitors; an automated process sometimes called storyboard editing; and multicamera editing. The number of choices can make the process seem more complex than it really is. Editing can always be reduced to two simple tasks: defining the part of the clip you want to use and adding that part to a particular point in the sequence.
