How to Use Group Tabs

If your timeline gets cluttered, or you need to move related pieces of media at once, Groups are the answer.

Group your Media

To group media, select the pieces you want within a group, right click on the media and select Group. This can be done on the canvas OR on the timeline

Position the Group

To move the group around, click and drag it to the desired location on the timeline.

Open a Group in a Tab

To open a group, click this + button. This opens the group in its own tab and from here, edits can be made to the group independent of the rest of the project.

Rename your Group

You can give the group a name for easier recognition. Right click on the current group name and choose Rename Group.

Add to Library

If you plan on using this content in other videos, right click on the group and choose Add to Library
