We've been talking about logging and pre-editing inside Premiere Pro. And I want to share another technique called sub-clips. They're exactly like what they sound. When you have a long clip, you can pluck out just a portion of it, call it a sub-clip. It behaves mostly like a clip. But you can give it its own name. And work with it separately. Let me show you how. As you can see, I'm still here in Premiere Pro and I'm still using my meta Logging workspace. Of course this will work in other work spaces too but meta Logging has everything we need because it has the source viewer.
I've already loaded a clip, and I've marked an in and an out, let's play what I marked, it's just one byte that I think will come in handy later >> Since I myself am a believer, that there eternally exists a four dimensional continuum. >> So this is marked with an in and out, just like we were going to edit into a sequence, but we're not at that point yet. We're just pre-editing, finding the things we might want later. So a way we can save this is to make it into a sub-clip. That's under Clip, make sub-clip or Command+U.
As you can see, as soon as I make the sub-clip, it offer the choice to give it a new name and that's always a good idea because all you're doing is extracting part of the clip. So if you don't give it, it's own name you really haven't done anything. We'll call this fourth dimension. Now there's a choice here that's important, but you can change it later. So this just says once the sub-clip is edited in can we trip beyond the boundaries, that is beyond the in and the out that we've already created.
As I said, we can remove those boundaries later if necessary, but in this case, because it is a talking head interview, I'm going to go ahead and not restrict it, because there's really no reason that I want to limit the trims. As you can see, and I'm going to make the icons a little bigger As well as going full screen, and there we go, we can really see what a sub-clip looks like. It's right there, and you can see that it's a different type of icon indicating the sub-clip. If we open that up, as you see, we only have the portion that he was talking about the fourth dimension.
>> This is on my cell phone. I believe that there eternally exists a four dimensional continuum. This is on my. >> Now you can treat this just like a clip. You can mark additional in out if you want to and you can trim it and manipulate it on the timeline. I want to show you one more thing which is you can edit the sub-clip. As you see, it's selected here in the Project panel. And up under clip, I can edit sub-clip.
This is where I can open it back up. I can change the original in and out. And if I previously restricted it, I can unrestrict it, or vice versa. So there you have sub-clipping. Taking longer clips. And making them into smaller sub-clips, to edit later. It's simply another take much like markers of logging your footage or pre editing inside Premiere Pro.
