How to EDIT FAST in Premiere Pro! (This will BLOW YOUR MIND!!)


– Oh, why, hello there, fancy seeing you here on this one October … 24th, which is a Tuesday, which means it’s Two Minute Tuesday, which means, let’s get started. (energetic music) What’s up everybody, Peter McKinnon here, and welcome back to yet
another Two Minute Tuesday. It’s so great to have you here, see all of your smiling faces. In today’s topic, we are gonna tackle how to be a better editor, how to speed up your workflow, essentially how to make Premiere Pro your (high pitched boop) that’s right, I said it. This particular episode,
I’m super pumped about it, I’m gonna teach you guys a technique that I love, and I love using. It’s to do with editing B roll. Some of you may know,
but some of you may not, but we’re gonna talk about automating your clips to sequence to
speed up the entire workflow when you’re editing stuff
together because time is money, and sometimes getting things done fast and efficiently within
your editing software, whatever that may be, is the key to moving on to the next project, being able to deliver content
on a consistent basis, so let’s open up Premiere Pro, throw two minutes on the clock, and let’s begin. So sometimes when you’re
editing B roll sequences, you want to edit to the beat, you want to edit to the music, and sometimes, trying
to place those clips on by dragging them from
your bin to the timeline can be time-consuming, it
can be a little bit tedious. There’s a super fast, super
efficient, super awesome way to do it, and I’m
gonna show you right now. So let’s jump into the computer and take a look at this. Okay, so the first thing
you’re gonna wanna do is drag whatever track you’re
gonna use onto the timeline. This is what we’re gonna
use to set our markers, which is in turn gonna make us be able to edit to the music, so before we get started on this, we gotta make sure that your keyboard shortcuts
are the same as mine so go up to Premiere Pro,
click on Keyboard Shortcuts, and make sure that that M
key is set to Add Marker. If it’s not, you can type that
in right here, add marker. Drag that over to the M key. It’ll set that hot key
for the marker shortcut. Hit okay, good to go, so come
on over to your B roll folder where you have all of your clips stored, and what you’re gonna wanna do is set in and out points for
every clip that you have. That just means the clip
is gonna start playing where you want it to play and it’s not gonna play past where
you don’t want it to play, so go through all of your clips, and set those in and out points using the shortcut I
for in, and O for out. Okay, so here’s the fun part. You’re gonna let your
playhead scrub through that timeline, you’re gonna let it go. As you start to hear the beats where you want the cuts,
you’re just gonna hit M. You’re gonna wanna do that on
any beat that you wanna cut. Super simple, goes a
little something like this. (energetic music) So we’ve just dropped some
markers on the timeline to the beat with the rhythm that we have. Now we’re gonna select
all the B roll clips that we have in our bin, so go ahead and select that first
clip, scroll to the bottom, hold shift, and click the bottom
one to highlight them all. Go up to clip, automate to sequence. Now make sure this placement
is not at sequentially, but at numbered markers, then hit okay. Boom, drops your clips in right on the marker beats that you selected. Now when you play that back,
everything is perfectly edited to the music based on the markers that you dropped on the timeline. It’s fast, it’s efficient, it’s fun, it’s a really great way
to add those B roll clips to your project when
you wanna edit to music, and that, folks, is
your Two Minute Tuesday. So hit that like button
