Inserting a Clip: Other Methods

Of course, some clips don't need to be trimmed or inserted using any of the more complex methods just discussed. For instance, you can bring photographs into the Timeline without trimming; as trimming a photograph (effectively, a single video frame) would achieve nothing.

To allow true creative flow, Liquid Edition allows you insert a clip in a variety of different ways, but of course the rules of Overwrite Style and Film Style still apply to each of the methods detailed here.

To simply insert a clip

Do one of the following:

  • Drag and drop a clip from the Source Viewer by holding down the Ctrl key.

  • Drag and drop a clip from the Project Browser by simply selecting the clip, holding down the left mouse button, and dragging it into position.

  • Right-click the clip in the Project Browser and select Send to Timeline from the pop-up menu.


  • When you send clips from the Project Browser, you can use the common Windows file selection conventions. You can select multiple clips using the Shift or Ctrl key and the left mouse button. These clips will be placed on the Timeline in the order in which they appear inside the Project Browser.
