I'm new to Premiere Pro (have some basic experience with video editing, but not much and from a long time ago). I have been searching for an answer to this one without finding it. I have material where sometimes a few frames are damaged (this is digitised old analog material) producing a visible nasty effect. I'd like to remove such individual frames. Basically, I can split a clip on the frame and the next frame, effectively getting a clip that is one frame long, then ripple delete it. Using the mouse and such, this is really tedious. Are there ways to speed this up? Even, splitting the clip with a key-sequence would already be helpful. But best would be some sort of command to ripple delete the current frame in one go.
Is there a way to make this easy?
Have a look at Q and W shortcut. Ripple trim previous/next edit to playhead.
Q and W ripple delete form the previous edit, which in my case is a split I created with the razor earlier in the sequence, which means a lot is deleted and not a single frame.
Page up/down, arrow left/right, then Q/W.
The quickest way I can think of is:
Let us know if that makes sense.
HI, by pressing 'I' the playhead moves to the start of the sequence. I was clicking shift-i, so with 'i' and 'o' two markers are created. But when I then click alt-backspace (I'm on a Mac) the entire clip is removed from the last split I created.
This is what happens for me too. And no one addressed this.
When I hit "i" (without shift) to mark the in point, it jumps to the start of the sequence.
Mark In (I)
Move play head to out position...
Mark Out (O)
Extract acts as a Ripple Delete, affecting everything in the marked In-Out range. There are of course icons beneath the Program window to do the In, Out, Extract - or use keyboard shortcuts.
I should note that if you completely extract that frame including audio, you may hear a glitch or pop in the audio playback. What I will often do for a bad video frame is cut out just that bad video frame, leaving the underlying audio intact. Then copy the previous good video frame into that empty spot. So the one frame just plays twice, without interrupting the audio. This can be less jarring to the viewer and will likely go unnoticed.

EDIT: I actually wrote this post before there was ANY replies, but got a call and never hit SEND!
The full sequence:
1. Move play head to the (first) frame that needs to be deleted
2. Hit I key (without shift, this was my silliness, I took (I) as capital I because I was told to hit I (upper case) and o (lower case))
3. Hit arrow-right for as many frames as need to be deleted
4. Hit O key (without shift)
5. Hit ' key
@SAFEHARBOR11 (thanks!) warns about the audio (quite right) but in my case this is silent material.
