Thank you. But how? The clips are just In's and Out's attached to the original footage.
COME ON!!! PLEASE, THIS IS KILLING ME XD
Use the source monitor.
Yea, thats where you mark the In's and Out's, but what do i do with it after that?
How do i seperate the clips from the source footage, and then organise the clips in bins?
Thank you btw
You drag them from the source monitor to the time line.
Obviously you didn't use scene detect to capture. Maybe you have one hour long clips and use multiple parts multiple times. And you want to organize them at a later date. Start reading on master clips and subclips and bins.
I'm using AVI footage, and yeahh its a 2 hour long film. Can you talk me through the steps to getting clips and putting them in bins please. It would be very very helpful.
You can make the bins either before or after you create your subclips. CS3 now has FlexBins, so you can open a bin in-place in the current tab of the Project panel, or you can open a bin in a new tab in the Project panel, or you can open a bin in its own floating window. This will make organizing much easier.
To create a subclip, set your in/out points (only one set at a time) in the Source Monitor, then drag the SM image to the desired bin. PPro will prompt you for a name for the new subclip. Repeat until all of your subclips are created.
THANK YOU :)
>but nothing seems to make sense.
This is a sure sign that you have read past words you did not fully understand. When this happens, you need to go back before you got in trouble, and look for any words you're not sure of. A good rule of thumb is that if you can't come up with a definition in about 3 seconds, you need to look that word up in a dictionary.
Reading this kind of material, it's very easy to go past misunderstood words.
I might also add, create as many bins as needed to make sense to you and your workflow. I often have individual bins for graphics, b-roll, a-roll, cam 01, cam 02 etc, etc. When capturing footage I select the bin that I want to capture to, for instance the b-roll bin. The clips are then organized and ready to go.
Did you figure your problem out yet?
There's also some cool video tutorials to watch at lynda.com. For a small fee for the month, you could have access to tons of video tutorials on the things that you want to do specifically.
It's basically how I learned to use alot of Premiere Pro CS3.
Hope this helps.
I don't mean to be rude but...
If you've "tried reference books, internet sites, adobe premiere help section, and just playing around, but nothing seems to make sense", then maybe this product is just beyond your learning capabilities.
However, it seams to me that your the type of person that could benefit from video tutorials as Marilyn suggested. I suggest before you start a real project...
1. You search the internet for video tutorials
2. Take a look at Adobe's free Design Center Video Workshop at http://www.adobe.com/designcenter/video_workshop/ and select Premiere CS3
3. You purchase some video tutorials from Total Training and Lynda.com.
For some reason when I try to bring sub clips into the timeline or double click them, Premier freezes and I can not watch them, or edit them. Does anyone else have this problem, or have a solution to this problem.
Anytime Premiere freezes it's either a system problem, a driver hardware problem, a virus, or a clip with an odd codec. You need to start from scratch. Uninstall. Reinstall. Make sure the clips are in a "normal" codec such as cineform or microsoft etc. Finally, use the monitor timeline and use the scisors to do your cuts.
