That probably felt like a lot. You created a new Project with custom settings, opened it up, duplicated it a couple of times, added a heap of clips with the mouse and the keyboard, trimmed clips with the mouse and the keyboard in countless ways, rearranged clips by dragging, bladed clips apart, and deleted parts of clips before finally making a duplicate Project. All these operations will be your bread-and-butter tools going forward, and you’ll use them on every single job.

But we’re not even halfway done yet. In the next chapter, you’ll learn about the wonderful world of connected clips and cutaways. They’ll let you disguise your edits, smooth over problems, and make your subjects sound better. Using cutaways effectively is one of the easiest ways to make your edits more professional, so if you’re keen to learn more, turn the page.
