Chapter 4. Editing Source Clips > Cueing Clips Numerically

Cueing Clips Numerically

You can use the time displays to cue the source and program views to a particular frame number, or absolute time. Or you can cue to a relative time—in other words, add frames to or subtract frames from the current time.

To cue the view to an absolute time:

1.
Click the view of the Monitor window that you want to activate.

2.
Click the time display for the selected view to highlight the number (Figure 4.29).

Figure 4.29. Click a view’s time display to highlight it.


3.
Enter the number of the frame that you want to view, and press (Mac) or (Windows) (Figure 4.30).

Figure 4.30. Enter the frame number.


As long as the frame number that you entered exists, the view displays that frame (Figure 4.31).

Figure 4.31. The view displays that frame.


To cue the view to a relative time:

1.
Click either view of the Monitor window to activate it.

2.
Click the time display for the selected view to highlight the number.

3.
Type a plus (+) or a minus (–) sign and a number (Figure 4.32).

Figure 4.32. Here, the time display is set to cue the current time 60 frames forward.


To cue the clip 30 frames after the current frame, for example, type +30. To cue the view 60 frames before the current frame, type –60.

Tips

  • You can highlight individual numbers in the current-time readout and change them to cue the current frame of the view.

  • If the time that you enter in the current-time readout does not exist, the view is cued to the nearest available frame—either the first or the last frame of the clip or program.

  • The frame-counting method displayed in the time readout is determined by the Project settings (see Chapter 2). For most users (and for most screenshots in this book) the readout displays drop-frame timecode. For more about timecode, see Chapter 18, “Video and Audio Settings.”
