Creating a Rough Edit
During the rough editing phase of your project, the overarching structure of your
movie begins to take shape. A rough edit is like an outline of your finished movie, and
many details remain to be worked out. At this point, you arrange, copy, delete, and
work with large groups of clips at once. You may even be missing footage still, but you
can use placeholder clips, such as slug or text, to note areas that need work.
