Premiere timeline – Choose your editing style
We created the sequence and entered the materials needed for the work. In this tutorial, we will learn how to edit multiple frames using different methods of working in the Premiere CC program. We will learn how to adjust the parameters of the Timeline Panel optimally for our work, and what the individual parts of the Timeline Panel represent.
Adobe Premiere Timeline Panel
The Adobe Premiere Timeline, or timeline that represents a timeline, is a graphical representation of clips that are placed in time from left to right in ascending order.
Adobe Premiere Timeline Panel can be viewed as a coordinate system, where there is time on the horizontal axis, and audio and video clips on the vertical axis. The clips that we place on the timeline are in time duration and at a certain time, counting from the beginning of the sequence, ie from the leftmost edge of the Timeline Panel.
- Video channels
- Audio channels
- Channel lock
- Channel position
- On / off for the whole channel
We place video clips on video channels, which are placed in the upper half of the Timeline Panel. Their visibility in the monitor is from top to bottom. This means that the upper clip will be visible and will hide the clip that is on the channel with the lower sequence number. Of course, and if the video clip on the channel above is lower in resolution than the video clip below, the video clip on the channel below will be visible in the part that does not cover the clip on the video channel above. Audio channels are equal All audio channels with identical volume parameters are broadcast equally.
- Current Time Indicator (Playhead)
- Current Time Indicator or Playhead
- Video part of the clip
- Audio part of the clip
- Time slider
The Adobe Premiere Timeline is a graphical representation of the layout of clips. The timeline is displayed on the timeline in one of the TV or movie formats. Since the Timeline Panel itself is limited by the size of our computer monitor, with the help of the slider at the bottom of the Timeline Panel, we can enlarge individual parts of the time series and thus get a more detailed view of the clips on it.
- Sequence as untouched or as individual clips
- Snap or magnet
- Linked selection
- Timeline display settings
Timeline Panel settings allow us to select the options of individual functions that we use most often during operation.
If we want to use a ready-made sequence as part of another sequence, we can insert it as just one clip called an untied sequence and it is graphically displayed as one clip or insert the whole sequence into a new one as a multi-clip setting, which corresponds to the clip setting in the sequence. we insert into a new sequence.
