Inserting video clips without cutting

Inserting video clips without cutting

Postby petsounds01 » Sun Nov 29, 2020 2:02 pm

Hello. Please forgive my ignorance if this is a basic question. Premiere Elements 2021 is my first video editing program and I just started two day ago. I took Steve's LinkedIn Learning course, which was great, but I think I might have missed something.

I have a video inserted into the video 1 track. I deleted the audio and uploaded my own audio and everything is synced up. So far, so good. However, I would like to add some video clips for transitions and I can't figure out how to do this so I can preview without cutting or pushing everything around. I did pay attention and I know you have to hold down Alt to not break up an audio track. I have my edited clip in video track 2, but when I play the entire video I can't see it - I can see the titles I added in video track 2, though. I'm not sure if this is a layers issue or if I need to do something else. Basically, I'd like to see the inserted clip in track 2 over the top of the video in track 1, so I can move it around to figure out exactly where I want to put it. I tried holding command to insert the clip on track 1, but that is when everything got cut up and moved around. I don't want to cut track 1 since it's the proper length and synced up... I just want to add clips over it to preview. After that, I can cut out what I don't need. Thanks.

Well... I feel dumb now. For some reason, when I inserted the clip the opacity was at 0%. I have no idea why. Sorry. Ha.
