Further editing techniques

Once beyond the basic editing stages, there are many other useful techniques to be explored; a selection is detailed in this chapter.

Command Palette

Although many useful buttons are provided on the standard button sets in the Composer window and on the keyboard, there are further buttons available. It is also useful to be able to move and modify the existing buttons. All the buttons are available from the Command Palette in the Tools menu (all systems except Xpress v3 and earlier). Open the palette and you’ll find a series of tabs under which the buttons are sorted into areas of use – Move, Edit, FX and so on. Figure 8.1 shows the Media Composer and Symphony ‘Move’ tab.
