Overwriting an Angle

The Overwrite Angle overlay replaces an existing angle with a new clip. Modifying the
angle structure of the multiclip breaks the relationship between this multiclip and its
master multiclip. You cannot overwrite an angle for all affiliated clips at once.

To overwrite an existing multiclip angle with a different clip:


Double-click a multiclip in the Browser or Timeline to open it in the Viewer.


Drag a clip from the Browser or Timeline to the multiclip angle you want to replace in
the Viewer.


Continue to hold down the mouse button until the colored overlays appear in
the Viewer.

Note: You cannot overwrite the active angle, so this overlay does not appear if you
place the pointer over the active angle.

Drag a clip to an
angle, then choose
Insert New Angle
