The clips will appear in the Project Bin based on "sort order column" chosen.
(Adobe did not invent this..its standard for all "file browsers) BTW.
Generally video clips are recorded and named alpha numerically. So...do a sort on the name column and they should be in shoot order.
Heres a tip also. Plan your entire project from shoot thru post production before you start your shoot. Do a test even.
Thank you very much for your reply, shooternz!
Actually, since I have been researching this for some time, I already got to the point of sorting the clips in the project bin as far as to eneble the metadata column with the "date created", which even has the precise hh:mm:ss of when the clip was created.
My struggle is to organize the clips in a new sequence using maybe the time of the first clip as refference so that all the other clips are arranged chronologically, by the time that they were created.
I appeciate the tip, in fact I have been thinking of a way to plan the shooting better, but since I cover mainly long events, I have to constantly pause the camera, thus creating several clips...
Thank you once more!
You can send all the clips to the sequence based on the sort order.
But once I send all the clips to the sequence, they go in the order sorted, but bundled up...
I was thinking of a way to create a sequence where the clips would be layered according to the time they were created, with gaps between them and all, using the first clip as a initial time reference...
If I could do this, I would then create a separate video track for each camera and synchronize all the clips with the single audio file that was recorded separetely and save hours of synchronizing work...
I hope I explained it right...
Depending on how you shot ( run time timecode, gen lock...?)
I would Lay down the audio track and lay in the video clips at the corresponding times.
Cant be automated AFAIK... but planning shoot and post workflows before shooting helps.
Ok, I understand...
But how would you mark the corresponding times in the audio tracks to match the clips in it?
I would place markers at corresponding timecode points in source clips, timeline or audio track points (slates ).
Where ever I had planned pre shoot.
Thank you once more, shooternz!
I just hope that Adobe can think of a way to automate this as it would speed up the workflow of a lot of people without the need of complicated and time-consuming preshoot planning...
Every thing is in "preplanning".
If you have a great "audio to video" movie system eg with gen lock or similar...Adobe has already got this sorted for you.
My guess is you are shooting on HDSLRs with double system sound.
A shooting compromise that requires compromised edit workflows. You pay the price for that in workarounds.
Your guess was right!
I shot with HDSLRs and a separate audio recorder.
If it's not asking too much, would you give me some directions on where can I find useful information about planning a shooting with multiple HDSLRs and the subsequent editing workflow?
If I could learn more about that, it would help me a lot!
I'll check it out right away!
