A Tour of Adobe Premiere > Previewing in the Monitor window

Previewing in the Monitor window

To see how your work is progressing, you can preview one or more clips in the Monitorwindow.

1.
If the Monitor window is not already open, choose Window > Monitor.

The Monitor window displays two views:

  • Source view (on the left side of the window) lets you preview a clip, trim it, and then insert it into the Timeline window. This view can store many clips at a time, but you can view and trim only one clip at a time.

  • Program view (on the right) lets you preview your entire video program, at any time. This view displays the sequence of clips currently in the Timeline window. You can also use the Program view to edit your video program.

2.
In the Monitor window, click the Play button underneath the Program view, or press the spacebar.



The rough cut of your video program plays until the end.

Note that the edit line in the Timeline moves in tandem with the preview. This edit line indicates the active frame—the frame being edited or previewed.

3.
To replay it, click the Play button again, or click the Loop button ( ) to play the video program in a continuous loop. To stop the action, click the Stop button (▀) or press the spacebar.

Now that you've got a general idea of the video program, you'll trim the video clips and add audio, transitions, special effects, and superimposing to create the finished version.
