Moving Objects in the Timeline

When you want an object to begin and end at a different point in the project, you can
move it in the Timeline. For more information about moving, trimming, slipping, or
retiming objects, see

Editing Objects in the Timeline


To move an object


In the track area, click a timebar and drag left or right to move it in time.

As you drag, a tooltip identifies the new In and Out points of the clip. A delta symbol
(triangle) indicates the number of frames you are moving.

To move an object and snap it to neighboring items
Do one of the following:


Select the Snapping button in the upper-right corner of the Timeline.


Press Shift as you drag the item in the Timeline.

Snap-to lines appear and the edges of the clip line up with these lines.
