Once you have all your media imported into your project, it's time to actually take a look at it, and decide what part of each clip that you want to put into your show. To load a clip from the lower left hand corner of the project area, into the source area in the upper left hand corner, you can simply double-click on any of the footage, and then move your mouse up, and simply skim through it By dragging the play head, left or right. You can also hit the Spacebar to play your video.
Now, this is our opening graphic. And, we're probably going to take that whole thing, and we'll look at bringing that in a little later. But I'm actually going to go down, and actually select part of one of my video sources that I want to import. I'm going to go down to my video folder. Click on this little triangle here, to show the contents of the bin, and we''re going to simply open up camera one, by double clicking on it. Now if I hit the space bar to play this, I see there's a little bit of extra media at the beginning while we're waiting for Vanessa to start speaking.
>> Action. >> Welcome to. >> So that's the point that I want to bring the video into my timeline. I'm going to back it up just a little bit. And, I want to point out that, once you bring a clip into the timeline, you can still refine your edit. And we're going to be doing that a little bit later. Now I'm going to go ahead and mark it as an end point. Now I'm going to use the keyboard shortcut of i for in. But if you like to press buttons, you can simply go over here and press Mark In. If you want to know what any of these buttons do, simply float your mouse on top of them and Premiere Pro will show you what that button does.
Let me go ahead and play a little bit more of this video and mark a point where I want to cut to my next shot. >> Welcome to Delight Gluten Free Eats. I'm Vanessa Weisbrod, Executive Editor of Delight Gluten Free magazine, and I'm so excited to invite you to our test kitchen. >> So she's about to turn. I think that's a good place to make a cut. And I'm going to press the O key to mark the out point. Now, we're not looking at the entire clip on this timeline here. We're only looking at a little part of it. And if I want to I can simply stretch out the work area.
Which gives me more of a 10,000 foot view of my clip. If I can see both my endpoint and out point. If I stretch this all the way to the end, that's the first four minutes that we recorded and there's the first clip that I'm going to bring in to my timeline. And as we continue to edit, we'll simply open up the clip that we want, find the best place to start. The best place to stop and mark in and out points and do it over and over again.
