3. Get Another Instance of a Title by Option/Alt+Clicking to Make a Copy in the Timeline.
Continuing on the topic of titles, if you've ever tried to copy a title clip in a sequence and paste it, you may have noticed when you modify it, it will also change the original title.
While you can duplicate the title in the Project panel, you can alsoopt/alt+click
and drag a new title instance in the timeline. Make sure not to release the option key until you’ve released the copied title or you’ll end up performing an insert edit instead. Once you’re done, you can update your title without having to worry.
I usually see people import clips through the Project Panel by double-clicking. While there is nothing wrong with this method, the import dialogue box uses your OS to find files and your OS can’t see certain video file formats such as MXF and R3D. Enter the Media Browser. You can navigate your entire OS from Premiere and the best part is it displays the files your OS doesn’t.
Complicated folder structures like P2 media are simplified into just one movie icon. If media is parsed over 2 memory cards, the Media Browser will collapse the 2 clips into one. The Media Browser also allows you to see other Premiere projects where you can bring in not only sequences but any assets as well. By default, when you double-click a file from the Media Browser it opens it in the Source monitor to preview. If you want to bring it into the project simply right
the file and choose import. Here’s a link to a video I did showing some of the features mentioned above.
5. Move Insert Editing in the Timeline.
One of my favorite edits to rearrange clips in the timeline is the move-insert edit. It allows you to move a clip in a sequence without leaving any gaps. Simply hold down cmd+opt
on a Mac or ctrl+alt
on a PC after selecting a clip and position the clip wherever you want. Notice how the adjacent clip will ripple forward and the spot you removed the clip from closes up so no gap is left. Feel free to watch the short movie below showing the edit.
