How do I import a file as a subclip?

Apr 23, 2013 11:41 AM

In my panel, I have representations of clips and subclips from an external system. So far I can only see how to import an entire video into Premiere. Is it possible to import a subclip?


To import an entire video, I currently do the following:["/path/to/"]);



I see the importFiles() takes a generic Object. Is there a struct that I can use for defining mark-in/mark-out points for this imported video?

    No, but...


    If the file contains XMP metadata defining sub-clips (created in Prelude, for instance), those will be available in PPro.


    You can also create a sequence in FCP XML, and import that.

    Did creating a sequence, and importing that, help?

    For the XML structure, see Apple's spec for guidance, but yes, using PPro-generated FCP XML as a template is a good approach.


    To the extent that FCPX supports FCP7 XML (I don't know what that extent is), yes, it should import correctly.
