Any Way to turn off a Video

Feb 26, 2013 11:50 AM

Tags: #11 #video_controls #première_pro

Again we are looking for a method in Elements to do what was available in Prem. Pro 1.5.

 

We often shoot using two Camcorders, thus there are two videos thru the complete lenght of a project. During the editing we would often use the control on a video channel to turn the upper video off so that an edit point could be set for the lower channel.

 

Is there a work-around in Elements 11 to accomplish this effect?

    Clip the top section or set some keyframes.  Then lower the opacity to zero by moving the yellow line down or at the applied effects tab.

    You can also right-click on a clip and uncheck Enable to temporarily turn it off.

     

    Premiere Elements isn't a terribly sophisticated multicamera editor. For editing multicam, you really are best to stick with pro software.

    If the Audio is linked to Video, i.e. Multiplexed, then Unlink it (Alt+click will unlink each Audio Clip from its Video Clip). Next, Select all Audio Clips on that Track, Rt-click on them and Disable them (uncheck Enable).

     

    Good luck,

    Most welcome.

     

    Over the years, I have filed Feature Requests to add two things to the Audio & Video Tracks: Locking and Enable/Disable switches, like in PrPro, but so far, no go yet.

     

    Good luck,
