The following is the interface of the Editor, which is where all video/audio editing takes place. Create a new Edit or open an existing one to access the Editor. The information and images below are based on the Full-featured editor (see corresponding section below for more details).

6. Playhead: marks the current time position in the Timeline. The Preview Window will display the media that’s at the current position of the playhead.
Simplified Editor vs Full-Featured Editor
Video projects can be edited in two different modes: Simplified editor, and full-featured editor. We recommend using the full-featured editor because it is more robust. Instructions in this guide are based on the Full featured editor mode.
To switch editing modes, click the Main Menu button to the top-left, which looks like three stacked lines, and click “Convert to Full-featured editor.” Be aware that Edits started in the Full-featured editor can’t be converted to the Simplified editor.
