How Split Edits Look in the Viewer and Canvas

The scrubber bar in both the Viewer and the Canvas is divided in half by a light gray line. The upper half of the scrubber bar contains the video In and Out points, and the lower half contains the audio In and Out points.

When you set simple In and Out points, each pair of audio and video In and Out points joins to form small, inward-pointing triangles.

When you set video edit points that are different from the audio edit points, as you do for a split edit, the upper half of each triangle marks a video In or Out point, and the lower half marks the separate audio edit point, like this:

As with other types of edits, the Viewer scrubber bar shows edit points in your clip, while the Canvas scrubber bar shows edit points in your sequence. The light area between each set of edit points in the Viewer indicates which parts of the audio and video clip items in your source clip will be cut into your sequence. The light area between each set of edit points in the Canvas indicates where the audio and video clip items will appear in your sequence.
