Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Making self-contained files, part of Practical Motion Background Workshop.
- [Instructor] Let's jump forward to a new project file.…Now, I've already gone ahead and labeled…everything into subclips.…In some cases, I've split clips up…into multiple clips.…In this case, these two clips became three,…because I was able to use two parts…of one of these longer clips.…Making subclips is a very good idea,…but I strongly encourage you to get them organized.…Let's maximize this here.…You'll notice for example that…as I made subclips, instead of using the camera names,…I started to add descriptive names.…
For example, Amber Slow describes the speed…of the background, and its color.…That's much more useful and descriptive…than say, DSC6910.MOV.…This is a useful way to get organized.…I've also put these into sequences here…just so I can quickly preview things…and watch them play back.…That's really just a temporary step…but you're free to use sequences…so you can watch things play back in real time.…Another advantage of using sequences…is that you can use this to clean things up.…
