A Group is a collection of shapes that can be moved, resized and scaled together as if it were a single shape.
Opposite to the more non destructive approach of the grouping function, the Merge on the other hand is a bit more of a destructive approach.

Hi there, guys. In today's video is final Cut will be looking at the options Group one group break apart and merge. Yeah, uh, today's video can be found on softwaretraining.co.za. Guys will notice. We've got quite a variety of different software. We do cover and we upload videos daily by therefore any new content. We're back in the programme yet now to group things and, um, group them is quite a handy tool because friends is like this flower because it's group I can move it as one instead of moving the inside and the actual pedals and then the stem individually. If we go to our, uh, layers panel here, we can see the flowers got a folder called G. That means it's group. We open that we can see stem. And then there is that flower, also in its own group on its individual layers. So if we select the stem, then you'll see you can move the stem individually. But now, instead of navigating into your layers panel to a new group, it if you have your flowers selected, there's two ways you can do that. You can either right click it and then you will navigate to one group. Or what you can do is you click on objects on top and then we navigate down to one group. Now, if we can group it like we see the flowers told a group of itself, so you can do the same. Right Click, Um, group and now the whole flowers in individual parts. So now to move it all together, you unfortunately have to like a selection box over all of it and then move it to group it again. We can either right click and we never get down the group. Oh, we go on top year to object. Now we get to group and the control of the shortcut for that is controlled G to one group control shift G quickly group now and write layer we can see again panel. It is a group, But this time under the group, all the individual parts will be in one group, not the flower head and then the step, because we group them together now when it comes to, uh, breaking apart and merging. Now, over here, we've got let's say, um, text. So we can edit this. We can change things if we want. Then if we, um same as before. If we right click, we can go to break apart or merge or we can go on the object on top, then we navigate to break apart on merge. Controls are control. Be control Shift, the former judge. Now, keep in mind this is a bit more of a destructive method of editing, So let me just show you examples. So let's say we take this text right click, we go break apart. I'll see anywhere where there was holes in the text that will turn it into a shape, which so there was actually a cut out of the ships. And now in the all that we can see as all the shapes individually. Now if we merge this together again, so we right click and we say, Merge. All those shapes has made cutouts, but as you can notice, it is no longer text, so we can no longer edit this with the text editor, so it's a bit more of a destructive way, but it's also a bit more of a finalised way of doing it. Otherwise, yes, that is the basics on those features and then we just head to our website. Quick. Do you guys navigate to softwaretraining.co.za y and find this video? More videos like this and we have a variety of software recover, like I mentioned. And also we have such option if you looking for something specific. If you don't find what you're looking for, we have this nice little feature Request the training video and then we will make that video for you. Otherwise, thanks, guys, for watching and chairs.
