    Cuts, timelines and in / out points

    Jarliei Level 1

      Can insertion points be specified digitaly rather then by mouse movements?

          Type in theTC to locate the point and use shortcut keys

          "I" and "O"

           

          Is that what you want?

           

          (At least this will use your digits for all of this action)

            I belive that The TC Capture is only effecting importing assests.

            What I want to do is:-

             

            1. view an imported clip.

             

            2. Mark and name say 5 sections of the imported clip as suitable for insertion to the Timeline.

             

            3. repeat step 2 above in x number of clips.

             

            3. insert these marked sections into the time line - but not necessarly in their marked sequential order.

             

            reason

             

            As I find it dificult to minutely move the mouse I am looking for a way to numericaly nominate the in & out points.

              Not true.

               

              TC is used to identify the precise time you are at within a clip or a timeline.

              It can be typed in to the TC windows to locate an exact frame in clip or timeline

               

              I think you should stick with the mouse mean time.

               

              Expand your timelines and source monitor up so that you can work more minutely within frames. (Use the Bars in the Monitors or the timeline)

               

              Work in the source monitor with your source clip.

              Mark the in and out points with the icons or the shortcuts keys I gave you.

              Drag them to the timeline (or use the shortcut keys for Insert /overlay)

               

              Note.  You do one at a time. ie mark in and out on the source clip then send to timeline...do the next one the same way... etc...

               

              Doesnt matter what order you do them because you can Insert or overlay

               

              Suggest you spend sometime with the pdf CS5 Manual as well.

                Have tried again whilst using “Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a book” page 71 but to no avail, obviously I am doing something wrong.

                As follow:

                Windows / Capture / Logging: Settings / Handles set to 30 / Log Clips to: (file name) / Timecode Set In point to 00.00.00.30 / clicked on Set In bar.

                No response.

                Obviously I am doing something wrong, I shall persevere.

                In the mean time I’ll follow your advice regarding using the Mouse, many thanks.

                  Refresh us on what  exactly you are trying to do.

                   

                  It seems you are trying to something different than what your  topic Re: Cuts, timelines and in / out points  indicates.

                   

                  I dont have CIB so dot know what page 71 is about.

                   

                  Someone can maybe chime in here to clear this up a bit.

                    1. view an imported clip.

                     

                    2. Mark and name say 5 sections of the imported clip as suitable for insertion to the Timeline.

                     

                    3. repeat step 2 above in x number of clips.

                     

                    3. insert these marked sections into the time line - but not necessarly in their marked sequential order.

                     

                    3. must be done immediately after only one section of step 2.  Once you move onto another section of step 2, you lose the ability to do 3.

                     

                    To clarify:

                     

                    1. View an imported clip.

                     

                    2. Mark one set of In/Out points

                     

                    3. Insert clip.

                     

                    4. Repeat as necessary.

                     

                    Whether with the keyboard or mouse, it can only be done in that sequence.  As far as I know, this is endemic to all NLEs.

                      I think the OP is, at least part of the time, trying to do something in the capture window.  That may be why this is not adding up.

                        Jim,

                         

                        Thanks, I was hoping to be able to ease the pain of a repetitive task, but it seems that the Powers to Be have not allowed for this short cut. Shame though.

                          Stan,

                          Possible, sometimes things seem confusing when one expects them to be straight forward and they are nothing but that.
