is it possible to add an edit to a clip during playback without causing playback to stop? I'm coming from avid mc5.5 where u can do this. hoping it's a setting in preferences somewhere but haven't found anything.
What sort of editing apart from live broadcast requires one to do this?
If you drop in an edit without pausing playback..surely you dont see it until you replay the timeline ( unless you have a time machine of course). so what is the point.
Premiere will allow you to drop in or overlay an edit during playback...but the instant you do so..it will pause the playback..
shooternz, just about all the editing i do i like to keep the play head rolling but especially with music videos. i like to just listen and add edits on the beat. with premiere as is, the playhead stops and i have to roll back and play again and add an edit 1 at a time, it's much better to just let the song play over a clip and add all the edits in one play through. Then I use the cut up clip as a series of containers that i fill with other clips.
Also, with the fitness vid i'm cutting now, i have all these testimonials and i like to just let them play and add edits on the fly before and after each answer. i've done it for awhile in avid and would like to get it working in premiere if possible. That multi-cam option might b a work around i'll give it a try (thx Stephen_Spider)
So where do the source edit points come from that you just drop in as the playback head rolls through ?
ie . how do you select the in and out points from a source file while a program file is playing ?
I have never seen any NLE that has this "on the fly" capability or seen a workflow like this before. If Avid can do that.. you should stick with it because Premiere certainly can not.
Note: Multicam edit modes require everything to be be pre synched as a video/audio stream ( simulated live mode) to do what you wish.
Just in case you are talking about setting MARKERS on a source clip or a TIMELINE..you do this by rolling the playback and hitting the asterisk key on the NUMPAD.
thx for clearing that up I.R
yeah I'm just looking to "add edit" on the fly, not add new source footage. Just hopped back into avid to make sure i wasn't going crazy and yeah it's the default action in avid MC to keep the playhead rolling after u hit the "add edit" button. Is this possible in premiere?
If you dont mind I would like to see you do this in avid.
Use Screenr and upload a sample somewhere if you dont mind.
Maybe others will like it and can ask for it.
I had some time so I did screencap for w00dybrand0 :)
You can't see what I'm doing with keyboard, but that's simple add edit function (cmd+k in pp) while playback is going. When I hit stop all my edits are there. Imagine doing some rough cuts to the bit or similar:
When we are talking about basic editing functions that are missing I think that dynamic JKL trimming is more important (AVID and FCP7 have that too). For those who are not familiar how it is working - you hit shortcut to go into trim mode, than JKL edit point while you have real time preview of both incoming and outgoing clip:
* Of course I couldn't get decent FPS for screen capture but I hope that it is clear enough (in real life it is all real time and much more fluid )
I don't want to go deeper with asymmetric trimming, sync point editing, etc., but functions above should definitely be included.
I'm happy to say premiere cs6 has added this feature! you can now add an edit without pausing, this is making me really like adobe. and i can finally cut on the beat again since leaving avid! Also, you can switch out of the program without pausing!
thx 4 listening adobe!
