Layer tools

The layer tools are found at the far left of the timeline. You will regularly switch between the different tools while using HitFilm.

The following chapters explain each of the tools in detail:

Select - enables selection of clips and basic trim edits.
Hand - moves the track view around inside the timeline panel without affecting clips.
Slice - cuts a clip into multiple clips.
Snap - turns snapping on and off. When snapping is on, clips will lock together to ensure your timeline has no accidental empty spaces.
