I shot a video of multiple presentations (1-10 min clips) in training class. I imported the clips into Premiere Pro CS3 in lieu of Elements (more my speed)...anyway. I want to create a highlights video using 30 secs to 1 minute excerpts from each clip (I have about 15) Problem #1: I have set markers and "ins and outs" for the excerpts I want; however; I do not know how to save and/extract them. Problem #2: My Timeline panel is empty and grayed out, so I cannot drag even the whole clips into the timelne.
1. A typical workflow would be to drag a clip into the source window, set in and out points and then use the Insert or Overlay command or just drag the clip from the center of the program windows preview screen to the timeline.
2. All your timelines are closed. To open one, double click it in the Project window.
