First, open Adobe Premiere and Upload the two clips by going to the FILE and clicking IMPORT. Select the two clips you wish to use!
Once you have selected the clips, drag them from the collection of clips on the upper left corner of the screen. Double Clip on one of the clips, the video should show on the middle of the screen, drag the video from the screen to the time line below. Press the space bar to review your work,The screen to the upper right corner of the page shows the final editing product.
DOUBLE CLICK on the screen displaying the clip (the final viewing window) and a white box should surround your clip, minimize the window of the clip so it fits the size you wish.
Double click on the next video from the collection of clips on the upper left corner of the screen. Again, drag the ACTUAL footage from the middle of the screen to the timeline and place it next to the other clip. DOUBLE CLICK on the screen displaying the clip (the final viewing window) and a white box should surround your clip, minimize the window of the clip so it fits the size you wish.
Place which ever clip you would like to show first in between Video 1 and Audio 1, the clip you wish to play next to it should be dragged above the first clip so it “sandwich’s” the first clip. The second clip should be on Video 2 and Audio 2 lines of the timeline!
Above is what instructions that i have used and can now play the to videos simultaneously, but my problem now is that i need to have each video starting in a different place on the timeline.
A bit of backround information
I work for a racing team and i want to be able to compare to different drivers after they have competed 10 laps running (example) but reason i need to be able to start the videos at different points is if one driver does his best lap on lap 3 and the other on lap 9 i need to be able to scroll through each video individually to the correct starting point.
Hope this explains what i am trying to do! I feel like i am so close to acheiving it with just a little help from you guys i should be able to acheive it, any further information required please let me know, also if you know of a better way than the above method please let me know.
Thanks best requards
Thanks for quick reply
Is there no way that i can alter the start postion of each video rather than scroll through it? i.e enter a start postion in figures in a box some where?
If both videos are 30 minutes long and i want to look at some that happened on 20 minutes and compare it with the other is 15 min 25 sec, can i not just enter the off set required in a box and the program sort the off set for you? i know its sounds lazy!!!!
As I point out in my books, you can click on the timecode on the Monitor panel and type in a timecode to position the CTI playhead at an exact position. You can then drag the beginning or end of a clip to that position to snap to it.
But, no, it's not possible to just tell the clip to jump to a position.
