The browser displays clips, projects, photos, titles, or generators, depending on the item selected in the sidebar. The sidebar appears to the left of the browser and contains three panes for selecting different types of media: the Libraries sidebar, the Photos and Audio sidebar, and the Titles and Generators sidebar. When you select an item in the sidebar (such as an event containing clips, or a category of sound effects or 3D titles), the item’s contents are displayed in the browser.

You select clips or portions of clips in the browser to work with them. You open projects by double-clicking them in the browser. You can sort or group items in the browser by creation date, name, and duration. You can also view the browser contents as filmstrips or in a list.
