Saving an effect or multiple effects as a preset in Premiere Pro

About presets

Are you an effects junkie? I am. One thing I often do is create preset effects to help speed up my workflow. You create an effects preset with an effect or group of effects to create a specific visual treatment to a video clip. In the Effects panel, open the Presets bin and note the stock presets that come with the program.

Sure, you can save a single effect as a preset, I do it all the time. However, I often use combinations of multiple effects to achieve a certain result. Can combinations of effects be saved as a single preset in Premiere Pro? The answer is, “yes, you can.” Let’s first see how to create a simple effects preset, then work into making a preset containing multiple effects.

Saving a preset

Screen Shot 2013-09-03 at 3.01.38 PMTo save a single effect as a preset, do the following:

  1. Add any effect to a clip in the Timeline by doing one of the following.
    • Drag and drop an effect from the Effects panel to a clip.
    • Select the clip and then double-click an effect in the Effects panel.
  2. Open the clip in the Effect Controls panel by double-clicking the clip.
  3. Adjust any controls to achieve the desired results viewed in the Program Monitor.
  4. Right-click (Windows) or Ctrl-click (Mac OS) directly on the effect.
  5. Choose > Save Preset.
  6. In the Save Preset dialog box, name the preset. Add a description, if desired.
  7. Click OK.
  8. The preset is now available in the Presets bin in the Effects panel.

Screen Shot 2013-09-03 at 3.01.55 PMTo save multiple effects as a preset, do the following:

  1. Add effects to a clip in the Timeline, as outlined previously.
  2. Open the clip in the Effect Controls panel by double-clicking the clip.
  3. Adjust controls for each effect to achieve the desired results viewed in the Program Monitor.
    • Drag the effect to a different place in the stack of effects, if necessary.
    • Readjust controls, if necessary.
  4. Right-click (Windows) or Ctrl-click (Mac OS) on any of the effects.
  5. Choose > Save Preset.
  6. In the Save Preset dialog box, name the preset. Add a description, if desired.
  7. Click OK.
  8. The preset is now available in the Presets bin in the Effects panel.

Now, you have a preset that you can apply to any clip or group of clips you like.

Drag and drop the effects preset, or select the clip and then double click the preset to apply it.

More about presets

Note that you do not need to worry about the alpha-numeric order of multiple effects, they remain in the same order that you saved them. Also keep in mind that this preset will be saved in the Presets bin for every project you do in Premiere Pro, not just the current project.

Details about effect presets are found here in the help documentation.

Here is a video tutorial about presets:

Keyboard shortcuts: selecting and toggling panels

Use keyboard shortcuts to select the panel you need.

Use keyboard shortcuts to select the panel you need.

While helping users on the Creative Cow Premiere Pro forum the other day, I happened upon a request by a user who wanted to toggle the sequence tabs in the timeline with a keyboard shortcut like he could with Apple Final Cut Pro. At first, I looked all over the manual for such a shortcut but could not find one. The closest thing was to toggle the different windows to the right and to the left. Not exactly what the user wanted!

UPDATE July 2013: Premiere Pro CC now has a keyboard shortcut for toggling Source and Record monitors.

I then turned to the Premiere Pro engineering staff and was enlightened. I found out that you can toggle tabs in both the Source and Timeline panels by first choosing the shortcut for focusing on that panel, and then repeating the shortcut to toggle to a new sequence or clip.

For example, if you press Shift-3, you will be focused on the timeline panel. By pressing Shift-3 once more, it will toggle to the next open sequence (if multiple sequences are open). Toggle Shift-4 for the Program panel and it works the same way. Pretty cool, eh?

When pressing Shift-2, you’ll be focused on the Source panel. If you have multiple clips loaded into the Source panel, by pressing Shift-2 again, it will toggle to the next clip that you previously loaded. A nice tip is to drag and drop multiple clips into the Source panel all at once. There, they are loaded and ready to be toggled to in an instant.

In other cases, you will need to know the keyboard shortcut to open a specific panel, rather than toggle to it. Here are some handy shortcuts to know, so you can get where you want quickly by using a shortcut.

  • Project Panel: Shift-1
  • Effects Controls Panel: Shift-5
  • Audio Mixer: Shift-6
  • Effects Panel: Shift-7
  • Media Browser Panel: Shift-8
Using keyboard shortcuts to quickly go where you need to can really speed up your workflow. Once you internalize these shortcuts, I’m sure you’ll be editing more smoothly.

Keyboard Shortcuts: Trimming with Premiere Pro (CS4, CS5, & CS5.5)

Want to take your Premiere Pro trimming chops to a new level? Then you’ll want to use keyboard shortcuts to trim. Memorizing a few keyboard shortcuts will help you on your way to a smoother editing workflow. Before you reach for the Ripple or Roll tools on your next project, check out the following tips.

In Premiere Pro, there are a number of keyboard shortcuts you can use to trim, including using the Extend Edit and Trim to In Point commands. You can also use an interface specially made for fine trimming, the Trim Monitor.

Extend Edit is in the Sequence Menu in Premiere Pro CS5.5

Extend Edit is in the Sequence Menu in Premiere Pro CS5.5

Let’s first focus on keyboard shortcuts that may assist you in trimming clips in the Timeline. The first you may be familiar with, the extend edit command. An extend edit is one where the edit point will move to the location of the playhead with a keyboard shortcut, which is essentially a roll edit. Since you cannot directly select an edit point in a Premiere Pro timeline, there must be two commands to perform an extend edit: one to move the edit point forward to the playhead and another to move the edit point backward to the playhead. In Premiere Pro CS5.5, these are called Extend Previous Edit to Playhead (E) and Extend Next Edit to Playhead (Shift+E). In Premiere Pro CS5, these are called Roll Previous Edit to CTI and Roll Next Edit to CTI. These do not have assigned keyboard shortcuts, so you must assign them in the Keyboard Customization dialog.

To perform an extend edit, do the following:

  1. Target the tracks you wish to effect in the extend edit.
  2. Park the playhead where you want to extend (roll) the edit point to.
  3. Press the appropriate keyboard shortcut (E or Shift+E).
  4. The edit then snaps to the playhead.

For more info about the extend edit function, see this video by Karl Soulé on AdobeTV: http://tv.adobe.com/watch/short-and-suite/performing-an-extended-edit-in-premiere-pro/

You can also read more about the extend edit function on my blog: http://blogs.adobe.com/kevinmonahan/2011/01/10/using-the-extend-edit-function-in-adobe-premiere-pro-cs5/

Another keyboard driven trimming shortcut is similar to an extend edit, in that a clip’s edit point can snap to the playhead. The main difference being that it will trim the in or out point, and then leave a gap behind rather than rolling the edit point. It’s called “Trim to Playhead”. This is also one that is not already set up as a keyboard shortcut, so you must assign them. Just look for the commands: Trim In Point to Playhead and Trim Out Point to Playhead. I used Control+I and Control+O.

To do a trim to playhead, do the following:

  1. Target the tracks you wish to effect in the extend edit.
  2. Park the playhead where you want to trim the clip’s in or out
  3. point to.
  4. Press the appropriate keyboard shortcut (Control+I or Control+O).
  5. The clip’s in or out point then snaps to the playhead.

Want to trim with greater precision? Then you’ll want to be more familiar with the Trim Monitor.

Before you begin using the Trim Monitor for fine trimming, I like to set up the interface to loop with a keyboard shortcut. Looping is desirable because you can observe the cut a few times before deciding to add or subtract frames. To do so, go to the Keyboard Customization dialog, choose “Panels” and type in “Loop”. You should be able to find the proper command there. I assigned the shortcut to Alt+L (Command+L Mac OS).

Though you can trim with the mouse in this panel, I’ll be describing the keyboard driven workflow, most important to advanced editors.

Here’s how to work with the Trim Monitor:

  1. Park the playhead on or near any edit point.
  2. Press the T key, the Trim Monitor Launches.
  3. Press the Spacebar to begin looping playback. Audio and video will playback repeatedly. Evaluate the cut and decide if either the outgoing or incoming shot needs to have frames trimmed from it or if a roll trim needs to take place.
  4. To ripple trim the edit point, first select the correct side of the edit point you wish to trim. For a roll trim, select both sides of the edit point.
    • To set up a roll trim: press Alt+1 (Option+1 for Mac OS).
    • To set up a ripple trim for the outgoing shot: press Alt+2 (Option+2 for Mac OS).
    • To set up a ripple trim for the incoming shot: press Alt+3 (Option+3 for Mac OS).
    • Once you have set up the trim mode, you should see blue bars above and below the clip(s) you wish to trim.
  5. After the mode is set, choose the amount of frames you wish to trim.
    • To trim backward by one frame, press Alt+Left Arrow (Option+Left Arrow for Mac OS)
    • To trim backward by multiple frames, press Alt+Shift+Left Arrow (Option+Shift+Left Arrow for MacOS)
    • To trim forward by one frame, press Alt+Right Arrow (Option+Right Arrow for Mac OS)
    • To trim forward by multiple frames, press Alt+Shift+Right Arrow (Option+Shift+Right Arrow for MacOS)
  6. Press the Spacebar once more to begin looping playback. Evaluate the cut and repeat steps 4 and 5, if necessary.
  7. If you are satisfied with the cut, you can move to the next cut by pressing the Page Down key. Press the Page Up key to move to the previous cut.
  8. When your fine trimming is completed, close the Trim Monitor by pressing Control+W (Command+W for Mac OS).

Once you have internalized and practiced these keyboard shortcuts, you’ll be able to trim any clip just the way you want to. If you have any trim tips, be sure to place them in the comments and I’ll add them to the article.Share on Facebook

Modifying timecode in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5

While combing through Help on a recent pass, I found that there was little information about how to modify (change) timecode in Adobe Premiere Pro. It’s definitely a feature that you may find some use for. While I plan to include more information about modifying timecode in Help in the very near future, I thought that in the mean time it would be helpful to share with you just how to do this.

Before I tell you how to modify timecode, you are probably wondering why you would modify timecode in the first place. In most cases, you really don’t want to mess with the sanctity of embedded timecode in your clips. There are a few compelling reasons, including:

  • After shooting dual system sound, you can modify either the audio or video for synching via timecode.
  • To fix timecode errors or anomalies during production.
  • The camera original timecode doesn’t work for your post workflow.
  • To match timecode of a smart slate.
  • In offline/online workflow, you want the timecode  of your low-res footage to match your master tapes for accurate match back and recapture.

Before you change timecode, be aware that you cannot access AUX timecode tracks in Adobe Premiere Pro so you must modify your source timecode. Fortunately, Adobe Premiere Pro has a Revert button if you need to restore a clip’s original timecode.

To modify timecode for a single clip:

  1. In the Project panel, select the clip.
  2. Choose Clip > Modify > Timecode.
  3. In the Modify Clip dialog, choose a new timecode for your clip. You can choose to modify timecode for the beginning of a clip, or at the current frame.

Note: If you are already parked on the first frame, this option is disabled.

To modify timecode for multiple clips:

  1. Select the clips
  2. Choose Clip > Modify > Timecode
  3. In the Modify Clip dialog, click in the timecode field. Enter in the common timecode for your selected clips. Again, you can choose to modify timecode for the beginning of the clips, or at the current frame.

Sometimes, you’ll want to modify the timecode of a clip in the timeline. For example, you find that the clap on the smart slate does not match your clips timecode at that point in time.

To modify timecode of a clip in the timeline.

  1. Select the clip.
  2. Press M, to perform a match frame.
  3. Choose Clip > Modify > Timecode.
  4. In the Modify Clip dialog, click in the timecode field. Enter in the timecode for your selected clip. You will usually want to modify timecode at the current frame.

I hope this help you understand the hows and whys of modifying timecode. Be sure to leave a comment if you have more to add regarding modifying timecode.Share on Facebook
