How to mark a clip in a sequence in the source monitor

Hello! I'm coming from AVID so trying to understand if premiere CC has some of the things I've become so used to.

Question: Is it possible to 'mark clip' in a sequence in the source monitor?

I have loaded a sequence into the source monitor and am using it to edit into another sequence in the timeline. In AVID I can "mark clip" in the source monitor, meaning that when the cursor is over the clip I can hit a shortkey (X on my settings, but I believe it's D in the Premiere default keyboard settings), and it automatically places the in and out of that clip (at the beginning and end). This is incredibly helpful as it means I don't have to get the cursor to the right place for both the in and out, but can just press one key and then insert it into my timeline. Is this possible in Premiere CC and if so can someone tell me how?

Additional side question - in AVID there is also a shortkey that allows you alternate between the timeline showing the sequence loaded in the source monitor and the timeline showing the sequence in the preview monitor. Is this possible in Premiere CC?

Thanks! xh

If you select a clip in the timeline by placing the playhead on it, and press the F key, does it not appear in the source monitor with the in and outpoints placed?

In Premiere, you can have multiple sequences open at the same time and drag, copy and paste clips from one to another (sometimes called "pancake editing" since you stack the timelines:

Thank you Meg. Unfortunately I'm not talking about matching frame from a sequence in the timeline to a clip in the source monitor.

I'm asking about when you have a sequence loaded into the source monitor and are trying to 'mark clip'.

When you are working in a sequence in the timeline, you can put your cursor over a clip and 'mark clip' which marks the beginning of that clip as "in" and the end of that clip as "out". I am wondering whether you can also do this when you have a sequence loaded into the source monitor. I hope that is clearer.

you can open the source in a timeline view (like you can toggle between source and target in Avid's timeline) and apply mark clip or whatever you want there. And since you can view as many timelines as you want at the same time (Meg's 'pancake view') you even don't have to memorize what your marks in the source were.

What you're asking for doesn't work in PP.

And here it is in 2024 and it still does not appear that one of the most basic editing techniques- perhaps especially if you are coming from Avid- is not avail on Premiere.  I highly reco Adobe consults actual film editors as things like this are incredibly frustrating.

And despite Adobe giving instructions on how to evenm just snap to the next/previous edit in Premiere, that function is not available.  WTF.

Ok, looks like the "T" key marks a clip in the source monitor.  Why not allow for this as a keyboard key along with "snap to next/previous edit" in the source monitor?

You can jump between edits in the Source Monitor using the up/down arrow keys.

I'm still a little confused by what you're asking for with regards to marking a clip when sequences are loaded in the Source Monitor. Could you clarify this for me?

Thanks,
Paul

Yes - for example, I have put together a sequence of selects.  I now want to put this into the source monitor.  As I choose clips, I simply want to mark/select them with one click to then drop them into a new sequence in the Program/Record monitor.  I found that I can do this with the T key.  I am surprised that this is not an option in the customized keys, along with many others, like snap to next/previous edit.

As Paul, I'm puzzled. And I like to learn how others work, it's so fascinating and often so useful.

 

First, you do know that you can jump to previous/next edit easily, right? And even to last frame of current clip, rather than the edit point.

 

So you have a sequence in the Source monitor, and want to drop a selection to the active sequence in the Program monitor? That's either an Insert or Overwrite action.

 

Or do you want to create a new sequence each time? I can't tell from your comments.

As I mentioned, as an example:  I have a sequence in the source monitor.  It is a string of selects.  I want to choose a clip, one of my selects, to insert or overwrite into a sequence in the Program monitor.  I want to be able to "mark clip"/select a clip to work with using one click.  I have discovered that the only way to do this is with the "T" key.  This should also be a button option to customize below the monitor.  The same for the 'next edit'/previous edit' function.  I don't see it as an option in a source monitor sequence, only in the Program monitor.

I'm still guessing. By "mark clip", you apparently don't mean to put a Marker on it, but to select it?

 

Are you looking for keyboard shorts in the Program monitor and Source monitor menus, or the Keyboard Shortcuts menu?

Because this thread originated in 2017, it would be best to have a new thread.

One thing you can do is open another timeline, with your string-out sequence in it and then easily insert a clip from the string-out to the edit sequence. Also, I think in PP "X" is the default shortcut for "mark clip".
