Creating subclips

You'll start this lesson by creating three subclips from the Surf.mov master clip. These subclips are automatically added to the Project window when you create them, and you'll use them in the next exercise to create your program.

1.
In the Project window, double-click Surf.mov to open it in the Source view, and then preview it.

Notice that Surf.mov contains a number of separate scenes. You'll make subclips of three of these scenes.

2.
In the Source view, set the In point () for the first subclip where the scene changes, at 1:22.

3.
Set the Out point () at 9:26.


In and Out points define the source of a subclip.


4.
Click the loop button () to preview only the portion of Surf.mov defined by the In and Out points you just set. Press the stop button when you are finished previewing.

5.
Choose Project > Create > Subclip.



6.
In the Name box in the Make Subclip dialog box, type Surf1.mov for the subclip name. Make sure the location in the Location box is Project: Windsurf.ppj, and then click OK. Surf1.mov now appears in the Project window.

Tip

One way to rename a subclip is to use the Project window. First select the list view in the Project window, if necessary, by clicking the list view icon (). Then double-click the subclip name in the Project window, type the correct name, and then press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS).

Now you'll make the second subclip.

7.
Make sure the Source view in the Monitor window is active, and choose Clip > Clear All Markers to clear the In and Out point markers.

8.
For the second subclip you're going to create, set the In point at 13:20.

9.
Set the Out point at 21:24.


In and Out points for the first subclip are cleared and new ones are set for the second subclip.


10.
Click the loop button () to preview the material you just defined. Press the stop button to end previewing.

11.
Choose Project > Create > Subclip.

12.
In the Name box in the Make Subclip dialog box, type Surf2.mov for the subclip name, and then click OK.

Let's make one last subclip.

13.
Choose Clip > Clear All Markers to clear the In and Out point markers.

14.
For the third subclip you're going to create, set the In point at 23:10.

15.
Set the Out point at 29:04.


In and Out points are set for the third subclip.


16.
Click the loop button () to preview the material you just defined. Press the stop button to end previewing.

17.
Choose Project > Create > Subclip.

18.
In the Name box in the Make Subclip dialog box, type Surf3.mov for the subclip name, and then click OK.

The Surf1.mov, Surf2.mov, and Surf3.mov subclips are now included in the Project window, ready for you to use in the project.



19.
Save the project.
