and i just now realized that my pgm window doesn't show ANYTHING AT ALL even while i'm using the regular ripple and selection tools to change in and out point on clips... now i'm defiltely working 'blind'...
please help me, any suggestions or info w'd be well appreciated!
I may have a workaround for you.
drop it above all of your video tracks
Video Effects>Video>Timecode - drop it on the transparent video track
Try the slip edit. Does this do a bit more of what you want?
If not, you probably have to get at it via the Trim window (T)
Hope this helps,
thanks for your Reply Dennis, but unfortunately i can't find neither the File>New>Transparent nor the Video Effects>Video>Timecode commands.
it looks to me like there is something more in the roots of the software, cause i used to work with it normally till my old HDD crashed, and now i installed it again but can't see the double monitor inside my pgm screen (in any mode, including the single/dual/trim)...
i looked for it in the preferences/settings but coudln't find anything. and i anyway thought that it's the basic so there shouldn't be a toggle on/off for that option... right?
It appears like a repair install may be in order.
Are you using CS3 or above?
i repaired the installation now, it was looking for the Data2.cab file (which i refered it to). there were no errors during the rapiar process nor after restart the comp. but still in premiere i don't see vid in the pgm screen while sliding/slipping...
i'm using Pro V.7.
any more ideas?
Yup, you need to upgrade to CS4 to get the feature I talked about. with this workaround, you see the in and out point in the respective frames of the two points you're editing. Try downloading the Premiere pro CS4 trial to see if it's going to be acceptable for you.
i always had 2 small screens inside my pgm window, while moving and dragging stuff on the timeline or in within a clip, and it was always on this versin of Pro7, or as far as i'm concered even on the earlier verions of 6 and 5.0...
so how come that now my computer don't show that anymore?
Another question on this topic: is it possible to resize the preview images? I have a 24" monitor, but the two images that appear as the "previews" are only about 150 pixels wide. So I go from editing a full screen image, to squinting at a 2" wide image. This is barely enough to see what I'm editing (where the new in/out is), so pretty near completely useless.
