2. The timeline is organizing into layers, which we call tracks, where media on the top layers cover the ones below.

To remove extra footage or fine-tune media, click and drag the end of a clip “in.” This is called trimming, and if you trim too much, simply drag the clip back to restore your video. As you work with the timeline, use copy and paste to speed up your workflow


11. Lastly, to fine-tune your editing, use the zoom slider to zoom in on the timeline If you zoom too much or want to see your project in full, click the magnifying glass to fit your entire project to the timeline.
