Selecting an Individual Clip

This is the simplest kind of selection you can make in the Timeline.

To select an individual clip:


Do one of the following:

 Click the Selection tool in the Tool palette.
 Press A.


In the Timeline, click anywhere in a clip.

If the Canvas is set to display overlays, a cyan blue border appears around the video
image to indicate that the clip beneath the playhead is selected. (To set the Canvas to
display overlays, choose View > Show Overlays, so there is a checkmark next to it.)

A cyan border indicates
the clip is selected.
