    How to move clip between Source Monitor and Timeline

    I've added in/out points to a clip in the Source Monitor, but how do I add it to the Timeline to see how it looks with the other clips in the time line and then re-edit/adjust the same clip in/out points in the Source Monitor when needed.

    Re: How to move clip between Source Monitor and Timeline

    Not exactly sure what scenario you're after, there's a couple of things you might be asking.

    First, add your clip to the timeline by pressing the 'B' key to overwrite into the sequence, or 'V' to insert it.

    If you've come from FCP7(Premiere?) then it is possible there to double click on the clip, it opens up in the source monitor and when you adjsut the in/out points those changes are applied in the timeline. Avid doesn't work like this.

    In Avid, once the clip is in the timeline if you want to adjust the in/out points you use the trim tools - either trim mode or the red/yellow smart tools at the left-end of your timeline. There is no way of opening up the timeline instance of a clip like you would in FCP/Premiere.

    On the other hand, if what you're asking is how to use a different part of the clip somewhere else in the sequence then you can load it up again by double-clicking it in the bin and setting new in/out points. (or by using Match Frame, or by selecting from the drop-down menu in the source monitor).

    Hope that helps.
