It's really not about using position tool and trying to edit in a "track" way. I do a lot of music video type of fashion film stuff that has me layering 3-4 video clips sync'd to music, and I shared some initial frustration in figuring out how to not have these screw up when i first started on X.

However I found that thinking about things Vertically -- what is happening vertically in that slice of time -- was the shift that made it click and made it powerful.

Instead of the position tool, most of the time its about using the holding the "`" key to leave connected clips in place as you move clip in primary timeline. About using secondary storylines. And about "lifting clips from storyline" tweeking them, and then overwriting back into the slot the lifting holds for them.
