to save up HD space and to get rid of unuesed length of clips, I was wondering if there was a shortcut to cut and erase unwanted parts of the clip at the in and out points, with a bit headroom around the in and out points for the use with transitions etc. ?
Would make my life much easier if I could do that. I very often use less than 1% of a long clip only, and it would be great to trash unnecessary length right after I've viewed it and determined the in and outs. Great thing if I instantly be able to prevent from wasting tons of HD space.
thx for your reply. I thought since Premiere is cutting the pieces away for the final movie creation anyways ... I mean it is not using this other pieces of code beyond the ins and outs ... I think there technically it should not be a problem to crop any kind of movies without re-rendering the pixels. I mean sometimes I take a long clip to AE, cut it out there and re-render it, but was hoping there is a non-destructive movie cut-short function in Premiere.
