Randomize image order option

Hi,

 

I'm very fond of working with random when it comes to my modular synthesizer. Sometimes it creates melodies, sound or rythm that inspires me to continue on a certain path. 

 

Sometimes I feel it would be convenient to have a randomize option to help get creative. Like, for instance working with a select reel for an abstract scene meaning connected to shots comes by placing one next to the other, then watch it back and slowly we come to a sequence that makes sense. Randomisation more often creates non sensical  combinations, but sometimes there is big inspiration in it. Ofcourse, editing is often experimenting en reviewing your choises, but in some cases this would make that proces quicker. 

I am wondering if there are more people that would be intereseted in a function that completely randomizes the image order of a sequence.  

Kind regards,
Rowdy

Hi Rowdy,

How about using the freeform view?

It sort of gives you a randomish / mindmap way of viewing your footage.

Here's a great introduction into how it might help you 🙂

Hope this helps.

 

Best regards, Euan.

Hi Euan,

Thanks for your input! I didn't know this was an option and is worth looking into, especially for organising a project.
However this way we are still manually reordering footage. We already do that similarly at sequence level. 

All the best!

Rowdy

Yes, agreed, but you can randomly move them more easily 😉

 

As an off the wall thought, there are a number of utilities
that will randomly rename a folder full of clips !!! 😉

THEN use the free form tool  . . .

Best regards, Euan.
