Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video Using placeholder clips, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…It's quite common particularly when your working collaboratively for…you to be waiting on additional footage items.…And in particular, animations, any kind of motion graphics work.…And it's quite common for motion graphics artists to give even very,…very basic rough sketched y frame outlines of content to begin with.…Because they're going to know the timing very very precisely early on.…It's part of the motion graphics work flow to have very precise information…about timing.…And you need to know that timing for your edited work.…
Now, let's say you're waiting on that kind of content.…And you know that you're going to have some kind of clip turn up…that's going to be, say three seconds long.…Well, let's say I'm going to put this in as a cut away over this interview.…And I just need something there to let me know where it's going to be.…So one quick way of dealing with this is to just create a new title or anything for…that matter, you can use anything you want, but I'm going to make a title.…And I'm going to call this title embedded visual.…
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
