HI All: I have a project going, an ongoing project that I'm adding clips to, downstream as I shoot the in progression, week after week. Except today I found two clips that were shot before the first clip in my timeline. The timeline has three video tracks and two audio tracks. What I would like to do is to move the entire timeline to the right, all at once, to make room for the new clips on the front of the project.
I fiddled around with this before on another project and really buggered it up. I caould not find anything about dooing this in the PP help, nor searching the forum. I'm leary about trying it with one of the tools also. I can do it individually, but that would take a bunch of time and the there is no guarantee that I would get it all in the proper sequence. Can anyone shed some light on my problem. Thank you. Spark
Use the track select tool (A) together with the shift key. Select the left most clip and drag the contents of the timeline to the right...
With the timeline selected, Control-A to select all clips and with the select tool (V) select any track and drag to the right. They will all move.
if you pull the clip in, holding the Ctrl (PC) / Cmd (Mac) - Key and you pull it to the beginning of the timeline, you insert edit your clip and the rest will move to the right.Once you have a complex timeline with more stuff in there, you'll find this faster and cleaner then moving it all then inserting, then removing the gap (ripple delete)
also try this:
set yout in and out points for the clip in the source monitor,
in the timelineput the playhead ("current time indicator") to the point, you want your clip to be inserted (in this case Home-Button )
then hit the comma-key, by default the insertedit.
this is actually (for me) the quickest way of doing this. Let the NLE move stuff around for you, so you can worry about the editing
