Once you have selected your in and your out point for your first clip, you're ready to bring it into your time line. Now there is a lot of different ways you can bring clips into a timeline, you can drag them, you can use keyboard short cuts, you can press buttons. For now because we are going to edit kind of quickly, we're just going to mark in and out points and drag them into our timeline. So I have my in and out point marked I'm going to simply click. And drag and bring this clip into the timeline. Now we can go back and play the out point in our timeline.
>>Light Gluten Free magazine and I'm so excited to welcome you to our test kitchen. >>So, she's just about to turn and let's go to camera three which is a close up of Vanessa. I'm going to look for the part of the clip where she turns her head and introduces me and mark an in and an out point and bring that into my timeline also. (SOUND) So there's the point where she's turning her head. Now, remember I'm going to find this a little bit later so if not quite matching the action, don't worry. I'll mark an end point by pressing the I key again. >> My friend Abba is here today to learn how to make an amazing, gluten free main dish.
>> So, that's a good enough chunk of time, about three or four seconds. I'm going to simply press O to mark an out point, and now I'm going to bring it down into my timeline. You'll notice when I bring it to the Timeline, that there's a function called Snapping so the clips will snap right to each other. If for some reason they're not snapping on your computer, simply go over here to the Magnet and click on it, or press the S key. Now let's see how that edit looks. >> So excited to welcome you to our test kitchen.
My friend Abba is here today. >> I was pretty lucky on that, that's pretty spot on on the match. The only difference is the audio doesn't match from one camera to the other. And we'll look at fixing that in a subsequent movie. Let's go ahead and bring in the third clip and then we'll bring in the title. >> To learn how to make a amazing gluten free main dish. >> So, if she's looking back at the camera, it's time to cut back to that main shot. Once again, we'll double click to load camera one. The wide shot Into our source panel. And as you see, we still have the old in and out points marked, which is good, because I know that she's going to come back to camera about right here. There she is looking at the camera.
I'll mark an in point, and as soon as I press the I key, you'll notice that the original in and out points disappear. I can press the Space Bar to play and watch her until she finishes her line. >> The main dish. So we're making one of my favorite things right now. And this is a honey-barbecued chicken pizza. >> Wait. >> I'll simply press O to mark an out-point. And once again, drag the clip to the timeline. This time, I think we might not have as good of a cut. >> Free main dish. Free main dish.
So we have a little bit of repeating action there, and we'll learn to refine that in a later movie. Now if I want to bring a clip in, in front of say another clip or this case at the very beginning of my timeline. I can do that also by dragging and dropping. Let's go ahead and load our opening graphic called opening 1280 mp4 into our source monitor. We're going to take the entire clip, so I'm not even going to mark an in and an out point. And I'm going to drag it down to my timeline.
Now, if I let go at this point, it's going to do an overwrite edit and actually replace the clip that's on the timeline. But I don't want to overwrite the clip, I want to insert it. And if you notice in the lower left-hand corner of the screen, you'll see that Premier Pro actually will give you some tips on using modifier keys to change the way the editing works. You see, it says command. And that's going to change it from an insert to an overwrite. Now, if you're on a Windows machine, you don't have a command key, but the tip will tell you what key you need to use.
I'm going to hold down the modifier key. And you'll notice that underneath my cursor, the icon changes from pointing down to pointing to the right. And now, when I let go of my mouse, it will insert the opening clip and push everything down the timeline to allow it to fit. Now, as I'm editing, I always go back and play the previous clip, to the next clip, to see how the timing is. >> Welcome to Delight Gluten Free Eats. >>Getting the clips on the timeline in the right order is only the first step.
The nexus rep is refining your edit and making sure when you cut from shot to shot everything works smoothly.
