Editing faster.
on Jul 2, 2016 at 8:45:01 am

Hi. I have a few questions on making the work flow a little bit faster. Thank you ahead for reading.

1. How do I do ripple edit only on one track? My problem is I sometimes I need to cut video very quickly to go ontop of music. But when I splice, and cut, the ripple will also cut away at the separate audio track.

2. Is there an easier way to do subtiles than to manually right mouse click and add text and then scroll down to my saved font and location and then start typing? Is there a way to just insert text and then start off of the default and not have to scroll down?

3. Is there a way to automatically disable resampling of the footage, so I don't have to highlight everything and disable resample? (Sometimes I forget)

4. Besides event pan/crop is there another way to do video in video- for example on YouTube end cards where I want the users to go on to the next video or videos. Right now, I'm manually doing it- dragging a clip or video into my timeline, finding the exact 15 seconds that I want to show, splicing it, and then event cropping it to size. This is taking too long because I have to randomly eyeball it.

5. Is there a way to preset how long a certain text is? For my watermark, I use two text inserts because the words have different colors. Is there an easier way than inserting them and dragging them out from their initial 5 second default?

If there's any other possible tips or videos I can watch that shows how to edit as fast as possible, i would greatly appreciated. I've been making youtube videos fo ra while now, but I want to venture into daily videos, which is why these little details will save me some precious time. Thank you so much.

oh, and I'm currently rendering out to .wmv and recording .mp4, however, .wmv is great quality but on my laptop, it takes way too long. Is there another type of format I should try that will make the files smaller? I know many of you will say .mp4, but the ones ive tried haven't looked right to me.

There's a down arrow allowing you select just that.

2. Is there an easier way to do subtiles than to manually right mouse click and add text and then scroll down to my saved font and location and then start typing? Is there a way to just insert text and then start off of the default and not have to scroll down?


First part, no.

Second part make your own GenMed Event

3. Is there a way to automatically disable resampling of the footage, so I don't have to highlight everything and disable resample? (Sometimes I forget)


Could be a script for that?

4. Besides event pan/crop is there another way to do video in video- for example on YouTube end cards where I want the users to go on to the next video or videos.

Yes. Search for Video Wall.

5. Is there a way to preset how long a certain text is? For my watermark, I use two text inserts because the words have different colors. Is there an easier way than inserting them and dragging them out from their initial 5 second default?


Hmmm? Set up a MyName GenMed Event and use that.

That should get you going.

thanks. What is the down arrow?

Is there a tool to send a chunk of files on the timeline to the front of the timeline behind clips? I tend to trim my clips right on the timeline because I find it to be fastest, but doing dragging or mass dragging of the clips is a pain.

Is there a tool to make sure that there are no black spaces or gaps between each clip if I accidently dont line the clips up perfectly?

[Kyle Le] "What is the down arrow?"
Here, next to the Auto Ripple Icon:


Press that and you get this:

1. Lock the audio track or event that you want to preserve

5. You can simply enter the duration for the text event. You might need to drag out the event to see it in full as I don't believe it dynamically resizes the length
