Can I batch export clips directly from the timeline?

Jan 21, 2014 12:59 PM

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?

 

All ears,

 

 

Ben

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Stevens suggestion is what I would suggest as well.

     

    Easy and does exactly what you want.

     

    Subclip to the same Bin in Project Window for convenience.

     

    Select all the Subclips for Batch Export.

    If you export your xml to Davinci Resolve Lite (free) you can easly export from there to individiual clips with handles if you need. Its a very simple workflow.

    Yes you can export to a variety of formats in resolve OSX here are the codecs supported, and AVI is one of them Screenshot 2014-01-23 15.14.04.png

    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 ...

     

    1.Select takes.

    2. Export part of each take as a standalone clip.

    How do I get the fifty clips from the timeline to a bin

     

    If they're in the sequence, they're already in a bin.  Just mass select and export.

    He probably needs to select in and outs first

     

    Hi frame rate cameras create an incredible amount  of "useless" footage either side of the event,

    If the clips are in the sequence, I'd assume they're set already.

    I haven't marked in's and out's, I've just cut the clips and deleted all the unwanted material

     

    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.

    On CS6, there is no way to do this in a batch, period.  Only with CC is that possible.

    Oops, sorry. CC only.

     

    Just download a trial, export your clips, and deactivate the trial.

    The project manager desperately needs a transcode option IMHO.

    That's very possible.  You just can't send them in a batch over to AME with CS6, it's one at a time.

    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.

    You can drag multiple clips directly into AME from Explorer then you would have to set in and out points on each clip in AME.

     

    In and Out select is something you have to do no matter what or where.
