Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Managing versions, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…When working in a nonlinear editing application, it can get…pretty confusing working out which version of a sequence you're working on,…which clips you're using and so on and so on and so on.…There's such a world of information.…Especially if you're working with these very large amounts of file based media…that we're encountering.…And really big files as well.…We end up getting into a bit of a mess sometimes,…trying to stay on top of both our media and our project files.…I want to propose a couple of really simple rules to follow when you're…organizing your project.…
My first rule is here in my Project panel, I've got a bin called Master Sequence.…And if I just expand this, you can see that it contains just one sequence,…which is my Satisfied EPK.…Now, actually, if this were my own edit and I wasn't setting this up for…training purposes, I would be calling this Master Sequence.…And I know it sounds silly,…but I genuinely have in every edit one bin called Master Sequence and…it contains nothing but a sequence called Master Sequence.…
In the previous installment of EPK Editing Workflows, Maxim Jago showed you how to ingest media and build a basic assembly edit from your favorite shots. Here you'll take that rough cut and fine-tune it using a number of industry-standard trimming techniques that work in just about every nonlinear editing system. You'll learn how to take your edited sequence from an assembly to a precise cut, with temporary effects and transitions that will help you nail down the final visual look of your video.
- Establishing the starting point
- Stripping out content from the assembly cut
- Editing quickly with keyboard shortcuts
- Advanced trimming techniques
- Trimming with the JKL technique
- Adding placeholder transitions and effects
- Achieving picture lock
