Chapter 3. Editing Fundamentals > Preview Before You Edit with Gang

Preview Before You Edit with Gang

The great thing about computer-based nonlinear editing systems, especially ones such as Premiere that have multiple levels of Undo, is the fact that you can edit something to see how it looks and just as easily undo it if you don't like it. Another quick technique allows you to see how a source clip compares to your sequence. This feature is called ganging your shots. For instance, if you want to get an idea of where the source clip would be in relationship to where your shot would appear in your timeline (from given starting points), you would gang the two clips. To use the gang feature, do the following:

1.
Select the starting frame of your source clip.

2.
Select the starting frame in the timeline.

3.
Click the triangle in the upper-right corner of the Program monitor.

4.
Select Gang Source > Program from the pop-up menu.
