Video: Creating subclips

In this movie we are going to learn about subclipping and why you would want to use a subclip. I only have one clip for us to work with. It's the farmer interview. So let's go ahead and double-click and load that into the Source panel. Now if we play through this, he has about three separate ideas or three separate sound bites. And as a matter of fact, we looked at this clip earlier when the director gave this to me, there was even a pick-up and a piece of black that I want to pull out. I know I am never going to put this in the show. So what I want to do is I want to, instead of having one big long clip, I'd like to have three short clips that would be very easy for me to find.

This course introduces Adobe Premiere Pro CS6, using a project-based approach that introduces video editors to all the skills necessary to cut their own program. Using a short commercial project as an example, author Abba Shapiro walks viewers through a complete and logical workflow that begins with importing media, creating a basic rough edit, and then refining the cut with music and sound effects, transitions, visual effects, and titles. The course also includes troubleshooting advice, such as reconnecting offline media and using the History panel to undo multiple actions.

Topics include:
  • Customizing the window layout and the interface
  • Importing card-based media
  • Capturing media from tape
  • Marking and selecting the best takes from clips
  • Editing clips into the Timeline
  • Performing insert and overwrite edits
  • Performing more advanced editing tasks, such as 3-point editing, replace edits, and trimming using ripple and roll edits
  • Mixing audio
  • Editing more efficiently using markers
  • Working with stills and graphics
  • Creating speed changes on clips
  • Adding transitions and effects
  • Creating titles, credit rolls, and lower thirds
  • Demonstrating multicamera editing techniques
  • Stabilizing shaky footage
  • Exporting your final project to the web, mobile devices, and tape

Creating subclips

In this movie we are going to learn about subclipping and why you would want to use a subclip. I only have one clip for us to work with. It's the farmer interview. So let's go ahead and double-click and load that into the Source panel. Now if we play through this, he has about three separate ideas or three separate sound bites. And as a matter of fact, we looked at this clip earlier when the director gave this to me, there was even a pick-up and a piece of black that I want to pull out. I know I am never going to put this in the show. So what I want to do is I want to, instead of having one big long clip, I'd like to have three short clips that would be very easy for me to find.

Now this is only an 18-second clip to start with, but there will be times when you may be given a 20-minute clip that you don't have to search through all 20 minutes. Perhaps it's a concert or a really long interview. You want to be able to break it up into small chunks that you can find quickly. And that's what subclipping is all about. To subclip a larger clip, you just simply mark in and out points at strategic places, in this case, with each of the three thoughts that he talks about. Let's go ahead and hit Play and mark an in and out point for his first sound bite.

Okay, so right before he goes I am here, mark it in. (male speaker: I am here at the well about a mile from my house.) I am here at the well about a mile from my house. That's a great little sound bite that I want to make into a subclip. So I have marked an in and an out point, and I simply go up to clip, and I say make subclip. Before I do this, let's go ahead and switch from the icon view to the list view. Now this isn't necessary for your actual editing, but it might make it easier for you to see what's happening. So with this clip selected, I'll go up here to clip, say Make Subclip, and I get a dialog box that allows me to name the subclip.

It uses the name of the original clip and then simply appends a .Subclip to it. Now don't worry that it actually says Interview_Farmer, and it might be confusing. We can actually change that later. What we want to do is very quickly go through and subclip the next two sections. So I want to go ahead. Once again, he starts the next section, I mark an in point, and then before it goes to black, I mark the out point, and once again I can go Clip > Make Subclip, and then simply say OK.

As you see, there is a different icon down here for each of the subclips. We are going to make one more, and I am going to make it a slightly different way. Again, I am going to scrub through. Right as soon as we come back from black I am going to mark an in point, and when he finishes talking I am going to let it run to the end just so that I have a little better handle in case I want to do a dissolve. Instead of going up to the clip dropdown menu and say Make Subclip, I can actually just drag it into my browser as long as I hold the modifier key.

If I'm on a Macintosh I'll hold down the Command key, and on a Windows machine I'll hold down the Ctrl key. So in this case, I'll press Command, I have my in and my out point selected, I drag it and simply drop it into my Project panel. As you see, I get the choice for how I want to name it, and for now I'll simply say OK. So there we go! I have three subclips. If I click on any of these to load them back into the Source panel, I only see that one little piece of the sound bite, and this is great for when I need to put together and edit if I want to make these more spaced out or if I want to find something very quickly.

Now if I want to find something very quickly, it might benefit me to change the name. And to change the name of any clip in my Project panel, I can simply select it, highlight what I want to change, and I am going to just ahead and put in the space and type in the word: well. So now I can know which part of the sound bite that is. And I can go through, and I can change all of my subclips now. In the case of an interview, I could write the word sound bite. But if I'm doing, say, a concert, and I want to cut it down to each individual song, I could name it by the title of the song, or if I just have a lot of footage, I can subclip it and label it to the type of shot that is being shown in that clip.

So as you see, creating subclips is very easy, but more important it's very useful.

Q: After loading a project from the exercise files for this course, the media appears "offline" and cannot be used. How do I fix this?
A: This issue occurs because the project was not created in your copy of Premiere Pro, so your copy does not know where to look for the asset files. To fix this, please see the video "Relinking offline media."
