Hi,

Im on PC Adobe Premier Pro CC 2015 and have a question i have not been able to search out a solution to (nor find someone with a similar question, although i know it has to be a common issue).


I have several 3-5hour clips (10-20 GB each), from which i need to grab one or two 5 minute clips from, to then use in a PP project.

How can I pull or import just the 5 minute blocks of video from these larger clips, without having to import or conform the entire 5 hour clip?

Another way to state this question (with time-code examples):

ie I have a 14gb 5hourVideo.avi i need to extract just 3h 42m to 3h 38m, and use that clip in my PP project. Currently i would have to import (or drag into my media bin / media browser) the entire 5 hour, 14GB video , then cut out my clip. When i do this PP begins conforming the entire 14GB video (as it should), is their a way to import just the 3h 42m to 3h 38m so the entire file is not conformed? ( i need to do this same function from several 5 hour .avi video clips).

Thanks!

Hi....

The answer might be After Effects.

Less prone to having to deal with the conform issue.

Import it....find the sections you want...

export as new clips in a friendly codec.

Have you tried Prelude?

Agree with Tero.

Take a look at Prelude. Here's an older video tutorial but should cover what your after.
