I'm trying to find a quick way to export clips directly from the timeline.
As I scan a sequence I want to cut and drag my selected shots to track two. And the batch export the clips on track two as separate clips. Is such a thing possible?
Or do I have to bring them into a bin and then batch them out from there?
You can't export a clip from the sequence. You can only set a range (with In/Out points or the WAB) and export that section of the sequence. But you'd have to set that range manually for every single clip.
You can batch export clips from the bin.
How do I batch export from a bin?
1. How do I get the fifty clips from the timeline to a bin WITHOUT having to do it one-by-one?
2. When the clips are in the bin what is the protocol for batch exporting them?
Do you have a special reason to want the clips exported individually?
Do they have fx applied when in the timeline?
Assume you need the selects as "edits". ie. in to out point and not entire clip. ?
Some times there are other ways to achieve things.
I have to deliver the clips individually. This is a science operation. They want little chunks recorded in separate files for their data acquisition.
The clips are 20 sec - 1 min. It would be so easy, once they are selected (there will be thousands during this project), if I could just batch export them out. We also need different resolution/size versions. More reason to batch export.
The easiest work flow, although probably too late now, is to set the in and out points in the Source Monitor, create subclips, and then export the subclips.
There is no way that I know of to easily get clips into the bins from the timeline.
Thank you Fred,
I've been meaning to check out Davinci Resolve. I'll try both suggested techniques. And use the faster one.
Mmmm. Do you know if Davinci Resolve Lite will convert files to other formats? If it will read AVI files? This super highspeed camera we have to use is pumping out AVI files my Mac doesn't like. I've downloaded a couple of converters to try out.
Passing through Resolve is not exactly a workflow necessary for your needs.
Overly complicating the process.
Resolve is a serious CC and Grade application not designed for transcoding without rendering.
Your needs seem to be simple ...
2. Export part of each take as a standalone clip.
Fred, I'm going to check out Davinci, been meaning to anyhow. Though if I do an XML out, that means I'd lose all the effects I might have added to the clips, right?
An aside: I love FCP's Color, how does Davinci compare?
And. Jim, Shooternz .. Okay, if I'm going to export out straight from Premiere. I haven't marked in's and out's, I've just cut the clips and deleted all the unwanted material, deleted the spaces. So the clips are in a line on the timeline. If I export > media > I get one contiguous clip made up of all the clips. How can I export them out as separate clips without doing them one at a time? Thus the idea of batch export, or something similar.
Can this be done? And how?

That sets In/Out points for the clip. If you were on CC, you'd then be able to just select all the clips in the bin and do a File Export.
Unfortunately, a quick test just revealed that this method does not select In/Out range by default, as would be desired and as is the norm for a sequence. Which means this feature's usefulness is dubious and we're still stuck with setting up the exports one clip at a time.
I mean seriously, Adobe, why would anyone need to make copies of entire clips from the bin? We've been able to do that with AME since it came out. The whole point of adding this feature, of sending multiple clips from the bin, is that the export respects the In/Out range by default, something AME cannot do.
The best you can do is to doubleclick on each clip to put it into the Source Monitor. The in and out points will follow.
Create a new bin before you start, and you can create subclips from each clip, putting them into the new bin.
Then export all at once.
This is still a hassle, but much faster than exporting them one at a time.
I must be missing something here Steven. I double clicked each clip into the Source Monitor, dragging them individually to the bin. Now they are in the bin. And how exactly to I export them out?
I also created subclips into the bin. Also, no way to export them out.
File > Export gives me a bunch of greyed out choices.
How can I 'export-all-at-once'??
I swear I came across an option to transcode out the clips from Premiere THROUGH Adobe Media Encoder / somehow I had both open at the same time ... (last week).
But now I can't figure out how I did it. Maybe I was dreaming.
Well, if you dropped each clip on its own sequence, you could iteratively put each sequence into AME. But it is not even close to as easy as using CC.
Heck, what can I say. The software gets better over time but if you don't want to risk being turned into an Adobe CC user, then I guess you will have to do it manually, slowly, one at a time.
