4. Edit > Create a Submaster for Editing

Create a Submaster for Editing

easily manage a project. Submastering helps editors deal with these situations.

Whether you are dealing with a small project or a large one, changes are an inevitable result of the editing process. As you are editing, the more changes you make, the more your mind begins to swirl. This is especially true when your changes are being influenced by a third party, such as a director or producer. By creating a submaster, you will limit the number of tapes you need to handle over time.

Tip

The practice of submastering can be confusing. In order to avoid confusion, make sure you have a good tape numbering scheme [Hack #3] in place and you are exceptionally organized.

When you’re dealing with a lot of footage, that’s a perfect time to create a submaster. You can create a timeline and go through your footage to locate selects (i.e., footage that you know you want to use). You should not be editing this footage into anything really meaningful, but rather grabbing the footage you find you will use in your final timeline.
