When I mark an out point in a sequence, Premiere automatically places the out point one frame after my playhead. How can I make premiere set the out point exactly where my playhead is and not after it? See screenshot attached.

you have to work with what you got. When the playhead is located at the beginning of a frame that's what you SEE in your program monitor. You DON'T see the frame before - you see the CURRENT FRAME.So, knowing that, and looking at your program monitor, use arrow key and go back one frame ( the nice one you want as your out point )... and make your out point. That point will show the frame you want as your out point. That's a lot easier to do then looking at the timeline and thinking the frame BEF...

That's a lot easier to do then looking at the timeline and thinking the frame BEFORE the playhead should be programmed as the out point. It would screw up the whole world of editing if that were done. Cause why ?

Cause people would have to advance to the frame they DON'T WANT as their out point, in order to get the right outpoint.

 

Try to work with what you have.

Good luck !

Sorry, but the opportunity to choose the point I see and where I cut is absolutely essential! I edited for years in Avid and it was possible to set it up there. Please, does anyone know how to set this up for the Premiere? I need to cut where I stand and not on the next frame!
Hi and sharp scissors.

That's what that little bar to the right near the top of the playhead is for. To make clear what frame you are viewing. Put it on the first frame of the edit and it shows as you like. You can absolutely and essentially cut what you are seeing.

There's also a keyboard shortcut available for "go to selected clip end" which you would need to set the keyboard commands for.

 

That takes the playhead to the last frame of the current selected clip. Which might be what you want to use at times.

Your playhead is postioned on the first frame of the second clip and not on the last frame of the first clip.

I see what you and salvo34 are saying, but is there a way I can change the Mark Out Point command so that it places the out point one frame the playhead by default? As I use the up and down arrows to jump to edit points in the sequence, I have to manually go back one frame every time I want to mark the out point for b-roll over a clip.

Oops, first sentence should read "...so that it places the out point one frame before the playhead by default"

Select clip or clips then forward slash, that is what I use.

Ah, that's a helpful tool! It won't work for all edits, but it'll do the trick for some.

  • Using the playhead to mark Out? CAREFUL. Move left one frame and then mark Out.
  • Mark clip command (X Key) marks a clip In and Out precisely.
  • Note: Avid has a modifier key where you do not have to move left one frame to mark Out with the playhead, but Premiere does not.
  • Please make a feature request if you would like to change this: https://adobe-video.uservoice.com/forums/911233-premiere-pro
