Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Reviewing media files, part of EPK Editing: 1 Ingest to Assembly Edit.
- Prelude is amazing for working with…large quantities of file based media.…You can batch rename,…you can get organized with bins,…you can put comment markers on…and work with meta-data.…But it has one little missing feature…that is a little bit of a bugbear for me.…And I suppose it's a logical consequence…of the way Prelude works.…You can't duplicate a clip inside a Prelude project.…Now this makes a great deal of sense…because remember we're working with the actual…media files, so in a sense I'd be duplicating a media file…if I created a copy of one of these.…
But it does mean that one of the organizational…work flows that I like to follow, just,…you just can't do it in this application.…If I right click for example,…I'm just not getting the option to copy or paste.…Now I can create bins.…I've got a button down here on the panel.…And I can create a select bin, here we go.…And here it is on the list.…And let's say I work through my clips I can double click.…In Prelude you can only view one clip at a time,…so I can look through this media and if I like that shot…
Stay tuned for future courses in the series, which will cover the other steps in the workflow, all the way up to the finished music video.
