How to Create New Sequences Quickly in Premiere Pro CS5
Hey everybody! Dave Basulto, Filmmakingcentral.com inside the Premiere Pro CS5, the wonderful new editing tool by the folks at Adobe. One of the cool new features of CS5 that I have just been finding so useful is the ability to create new sequences by simply dragging your video or whatever into the little area here, the new item icon.
Now, prior to this, you could either go file, new project -- I'm sorry new sequence not new project, file, new sequence. You could go and it creates your sequence. You could go down here and go new item and sequence.
So, you have different options. You could also press -- we go back up here really quick, command or control again depending if you're using a PC or Mac and that would create a new sequence so let's just take a look at that.
So, now, it goes into here the next step and you choose Ok. And, for this sequence, I'm going to do ABC Intra DV blah, blah, blah. Now, that’s all fine and dandy especially if you're changing sequence formats, presets, that’s great! But, usually I, for example, get a ton of clips that I need to add text to or logos or whatever and it’s just worked that way before and I was fine and we did our work.
But, now that I can just go drag my video that I'm done with and into the new item icon and voila, it creates a new sequence. So, here’s my sequence. It’s got 720x480 specs on it. It is so much quicker. So, I just grab, drag the new icon. Boom, new sequence!
It’s a really, really quick way of creating a new sequence. I just finished the large, large project and was able to take advantage of this fully. And, let me tell you, it’s a huge time saver. Every second counts when we’re trying to make money, right. So, that’s it for today, just a quick tip for you. I've been trying to create a new sequence and you're standing in the same preset, just click and drag your footage or your sub clip or whatever into the new item icon and let go and your new sequence will be created.
