Snapping markers to each other

Video: Snapping markers to each other

In the previous movie we learned how to create markers in both the timeline and in individual clips. Now, we are going to go ahead and create a couple of additional markers and use these markers beyond just writing notes to yourself, and use them to fine tune and make precise edits. We placed a marker in the narrator on the word light, so what I want do is go to the bulb clip, and I am going to double-click to load that into the Source panel, and then I am going to scrub through right until the light turns on. Just as the light turns on, I am going to hit the M key and create a marker.

Snapping markers to each other

In the previous movie we learned how to create markers in both the timeline and in individual clips. Now, we are going to go ahead and create a couple of additional markers and use these markers beyond just writing notes to yourself, and use them to fine tune and make precise edits. We placed a marker in the narrator on the word light, so what I want do is go to the bulb clip, and I am going to double-click to load that into the Source panel, and then I am going to scrub through right until the light turns on. Just as the light turns on, I am going to hit the M key and create a marker.

Now I know where I am going use that for so I am not going to go ahead and label that. I'm just using it as a point of reference, so when I look at this clip in my timeline, I know exactly when the light turns on. The other thing I want to do is I want to put a marker inside my music, and that's really useful also. So I am going to double-click to load the music in and go over here to where we have a little bit of a spike. I am going to go ahead and just place my cursor there and hit Play. (video playing) I like where that music picks up, and I am going to actually make an edit on that, I could zoom in and get a lot more detail.

Right there is where it picks up, so again, I am going to hit the M key, and I am going to leverage the fact that I know exactly where the music spikes for cutting this first little sequence together. Let's go back to the light bulb, and we want to bring the light bulb in right where she says light. And I am going to just arbitrarily mark an end point, before, and out point after. The length is about 5 seconds--probably little bit too long, but we'll fix that in a moment. And I am going to drag this right down to the timeline and just kind of drop it anywhere. So that's where the light turns on, and that's where she says the word light.

So this is pretty cool. I don't have to sit there, and I don't want to cut to it as the light turns on. So I am going to go ahead and stretch that a little bit and stretch that a little bit longer, and my goal is to grab this little marker and have it snap to the other marker. I am going to move this out of the way, so we can really see our markers. I am going to ahead--and if I drag it, you'll notice, if snapping is turned on, it like a magnet pops right there. Now let's play that back and see how it looks. (video playing) That's cool.

It lights up just when it she says lights up. Now, I do have a little problem here. I did forget and brought in the ambient sound. So we learned earlier that if you hold down the Option key on a Mac, I can select just my audio and go ahead and delete that. So now we actually have a light bulb turning on without the director talking. (video playing) So that's pretty cool. I have the perfect timing for lighting up their lives, and I can start or end this whenever I want, but I have matched the action of what she is saying. Now the other thing I did was I added a marker to my music right at the crescendo.

So again, double-click to load this into the viewer. I am going to mark an end point right before the music comes up. I don't care about the out point. I am going to add a lot of the B-roll there, and I want to bring this into my timeline, so I am going to simply grab the audio and drop it down there. If you notice, even when I bring it to the timeline, because I have that marker there, I could let go and have the music crescendo when she says the word light. So let's see what that sounds like. (video playing) Well, not exactly what I wanted, because it's the crescendos coming, but it's different than what I hear in the music, and it's not working for me.

So watch what I can do. Well, I like that crescendo right there for the cut. I am going to go ahead--going to go ahead and double-click on this load it into the viewer, put a new marker in, and now I can go ahead and I can slide this over and lock this marker here, the crescendo to where we are going to cut to this really cool time lapse shot, mark an end point. I love the shot. We are going to take as much of it as possible, mark an out point. I'm going to go ahead and grab just the video in this case. Before you grab just the audio and drag that right to my timeline, so we have this beautiful sunset shot, and let's take a look and listen to our cut.

(video playing) I like that just as this blooms, that's right here that crescendo, and probably what I'll do is I would go to this audio and bring down the audio levels so it doesn't step on what she's talking about, and I am going to just latest uses this as a Trim option here, and now we just trim off the beginning, and we're good to go. (video playing) As you see, using markers in both your clips and on the timeline allows you to precisely edit what you want where you want.
