    how do you insert video at the front of the timeline, and keep everything after in sync ?

    I have a timeline with 7-8 tracks -- content randomly scattered amongst those tracks.

    How do I insert video etc at the head of all that, while ensuring everything after the insertion is kept in sync ?

    Switch to Smart editing mode.

    Place the timeline cursor at the start of the timeline and select the track you want to send the new clip to.

    Select the clip you want to use in the Library.

    If you don't want to use all of it, pre-trim it in the Source viewer.

    Use the Send to Timeline button on the source viewer to place the clip a your chosen point on the timeline.

    All the content on all the other tracks will move right to make room.

    There are many other ways to do this, but that's the easiest one to describe.
