Applying Specialized Editing Tools in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5

Article Description

This excerpt from Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 Classroom in a Book shows you how to use Rolling Edit, Slide, Slip, Lift and Extract to simplify certain tasks.

Editing with In and Out points around a clip

In Lesson 5 you set In and Out points on a sequence to perform some lifts and extracts. You can use the same In and Out points in a sequence to identify the location to insert a source clip that also has In and Out points marked. This is called a four-point edit.

Adobe Premiere Pro has two features called In and Out Around Clip and In and Out Around Selection. In this exercise, you will perform a four-point edit using In and Out Around Clip. This may seem like a complex edit, but once you get used to it, you may find it will save you a lot of time in certain editing situations. This is especially helpful when your start and end frame points are both important but you need to replace the frames in between. Let’s begin:

  1. Open Lesson 08-04.prproj.
  2. Play the Timeline, and then click the second clip to select it.

    The second clip on the Timeline is going to be replaced with a clip of a different camera angle. You want to remove the second clip and replace it with the In and Out sections of a new clip you will specify.

  3. Move the current-time indicator anywhere over the second clip. Right-click in the Timeline area.
  4. Choose Set Sequence Marker > In and Out Around Clip. The Timeline is now shaded above the second clip.
  5. Double-click the multicam_02.mov clip in the Project panel to open it in the Source Monitor.
  6. Drag the current-time indicator in the Source Monitor to 00;00;14;20, and set the In point by clicking the Set In Point bracket ({).
  7. Drag the current-time indicator in the Source Monitor to 00;00;16;20, and set the Out point by clicking the Set Out Point bracket (}).
  8. Click the Overlay icon in the Source Monitor (as shown here) to overlay the marked source clip on the clip you marked on the Timeline. A dialog appears, warning that the marked source clip is shorter than the destination clip. Accept the default to allow Adobe Premiere Pro to adjust the speed of the source clip to make it match the length of the destination clip.
  9. Play the Timeline.
