Chapter 5. Editing Clips into a Sequence > Adding Clips to the Timeline Automat...

Adding Clips to the Timeline Automatically

Before shooting any footage, filmmakers usually create a storyboard—a series of sketches that depicts each shot in the finished program. Planning each shot in a storyboard can save you enormous amounts of time, money, and energy in production. In postproduction, you can use a similar storyboarding technique to plan a rough cut and instantly assemble it into a sequence, again saving time and energy.

As you learned in Chapter 3, “Capturing and Adding Footage,” setting the Media window to icon view allows you to arrange clips in a storyboard fashion. If you want, you can open the clips in the source view to set In and Out points, as well. Once your storyboard is complete, use the Create Slideshow command to assemble the selected clips into a sequence. You can also use it to add clips to a sequence according to the order in which you select them in the Media window. Premiere Elements can even add the default video and audio transition between clips.
