Join Maxim Jago for an in-depth discussion in this video What you can do without picture lock, part of EPK Editing: 2 Creative Editing and Fine-Tuning.
…It's worth noting, of course, that not only is it rare for…us to have picture lock as a workflow these days,…we actually don't have a picture lock mode within Premiere Pro.…And we've got the option to turn off and on linking.…We can do snapping.…We've got controls for the way we nest or do not nest sequences.…But we don't have a way of locking the position of our clips.…A very common solution to this problem is to lock whole tracks.…And so, here, for example, I know that I don't want to…change the contents of the audio for the music or for the music video.…
I know I'm not going to want to make changes to the music video contents.…So, I can just lock my audio two and lock my video three.…And now, no matter what I do, I'm not going to make any adjustments.…I can't even select these items.…Now, this is a great solution, but you do have to be a little bit careful.…I'll illustrate what I mean.…If I select a big chunk of the timeline.…I'm just going to use the i and…the o keys on my keyboard to select the whole region here.…
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
