    I am a raw beginner at DV and editing. this is my first post.

    this is more of a procedural question than a purely technical one.

    I want to shoot a short corporate video which will be a talking head
    with a dialogue which will cut away to various other scenic shots with
    the dialogue continuing behind, much like a news bulletin would.

    what I'm not sure of, and I'm sure the answer is quite simple, is how
    to insert a scene into the talking head sequence but have the audio
    perfectly syncronised with the vision when I cut back to the talking

    I'm pretty competent with graphics stuff like photoshop, so no need to
    go into too much detail. just gimme a hint or two and I would be
    forever grateful.

  3. You just need to learn the basics of Premiere, Matthew. Read the manual, or
    one of the many books available at the bookstore.

    A video insert is just placing a clip on track 2 or higher. You can dissolve
    to the insert by using the red "rubber band," as explained in the manual.
    You can keep or get rid of the sound from the inserted clip, as desired. The
    original (main) video is basically left untouched, and the output sees the
    higher tracks before the lower ones, thus the insert capability.
