Hi Ann Marie.

One early realization that every X editor has to understand is that key worded ranges are very different from traditional “subclips” in this sense ...

Range selections are never really “stand alone” things, but more like “windows” into the underlying source clip.

This reflects in many ways. For instance, renaming one “clip” in a set of ranges, can rename them all. This confuses new editors, but makes perfect sense when you see them as the “windows” I describe. You are renaming the underlying whole clip - so all the instances what are just virtual windows into it change too.

One really useful aspect of this is how when you insert a range selection into your storyline, you can often drag its boundaries out to the length of the underlying source clip if you like.

This makes adding transitions, for example significantly easier since most range selections arrive with natural ample pads attached.

Hope some of this helps you better conceptuslize how X functions.
