In Avid Media Composer I can easily swap the source monitor's contents to the timeline, and then back. This is useful when editing one sequence into another, as you can see your edit points, and you can easily jump from cut to cut in your source sequence. Can you do the same thing in Premiere somehow? To clarify, you're able to simply view the source sequence as a timeline, it doesn't actually move anything to the existing timeline. It's just a button-push to toggle between a sequence view of the source monitor, and the sequence your cutting in the record monitor.

Alternately, how can I just set an in/out like the attached image, and just copy the two video tracks and top audio track so I can paste it into another sequence?

Guys,

For some reason I thought this copy / paste wasn't working before, but it is now, so I think problem solved. Thanks.

If you are wanting to edit content from one sequence to another you can also open a sequence in the source monitor, select in and out points, patch and edit.

Is this what you originally wanted?

I know you can put a sequence in the source side and edit with it, but I wanted to be able to see the source side sequence while making my in/out selects like I'very gotten used to doing in Media Composer. Copy/paste is probably the closest I'll get.

With a sequence loaded into the source monitor...

click on the wrench icon in the source viewer....


choose "open sequence in timeline"

this will open a sequence tab with the name of the sequence followed by (source monitor)


this is what you are looking for...

Alex, that is almost exactly it! But what I would really like is the same functionality for "merged" clips, so I can see the waveforms on all 8 tracks of my synced audio. This makes it so much easier to know which tracks have active sound when making edit decisions. I wasn't able to test extensively, but it seemed like I wasn't able to get merged clips to open on the timeline. Am I wrong? Or is there perhaps a work-around?

So close!

Chris

Hmmmm.....

only thing I can think of is using a sequence in place of "merged clips"

where the sequence is alignment of the audio and video...

don't forget too that when you edit from a sequence to a sequence you can edit as a nested container or tracks to tracks...

Yeah, if I'd set the project up myself, that's probably what I would have done; made synced sequences. Although somebody would have to explain to me the benefit of using nested containers, as that's not a workflow that's available in Avid, and I've never done it. But alas, I didn't set up the project, so I'm slogging thru best that I can. It's sometimes frustrating, but I'm getting it done.

before we had adjustment layers, nests were the only way to apply a single effect to a group...

classic example would be...

4way split that you want to fly in and out....

nest gives you one axis....

but it's non destructive because you can step in and edit/replace sources within...
