add clips between clips

One of Premiere Elements' best features is the ability to add clips anywhere in the project, not just at the end. For example, in my movie, I will show clips of people arriving at the party, and then, in the next scene, meeting and greeting before the entertainment started.

When shooting the video, however, these scenes were intermixed; some folks arrived, then mingled, then more arrivals, then more mingling. During editing, I'll group all the arrival shots first, then the meeting and greeting shots. This means that I'll have to insert some clips in between others already on the Timeline. Here's how it's done.

If you release the cursor in the middle of a clip, Premiere Elements will split the clip on the Timeline and insert the new clip, which is generally not what you want. To help make sure you're between two clips, the cursor “snaps” to the intersection of the clips.
