pre-cut central 2sec of all clips and add to sequence
on Oct 13, 2017 at 10:58:31 am

I have tons of clips and I want to use only 2 sec of each one in the timeline.
Then I 'm going to search inside each one with Slip Tool to find the desired scenes
Is it possible ?

Yes but it would be probably more efficient if you searched your two second clips in the source monitor from the original clips and added them to the sequence.

Clips all OK but they need trimming to discard the start/end because of motion due to button press.
How do I batch trim (crop?) them?

From the source viewer, scrub through the clip. Hit the i key for the in point, and the o key for the out point. hit the period or comma keys to add it to the timeline.

Unless I don't understand what you want to accomplish -- other than automating the process, which you can't do -- you're all set.

PP will also remember where you set the in & out points of the clips if you don't want to put them in a timeline.

Exactly, the clips need automatic trimming, they are over 1000.
I need something like "automate to sequence, with 5sec overlapping" so the usable clip in the timeline is trimmed in both ends

[George Kalogeris] "Exactly, the clips need automatic trimming, they are over 1000."

In that case, I would get busy trimming clips. Remember the i and o keys. You can also set ain in and then hit "+200" to adance the cursor 2 seconds and set the out.

Editing applications aren't exactly set up for automation.

I curse the marketing people who think that everything can be automated.
