In Premiere Pro CS6, Icon view has the following features:
- Use the Zoom slider to increase or decrease the size of icons. Icons can be zoomed to a large scale so that you can view the contents of your media more easily.
- To scrub through the contents of a clip, do one of the following:
- Move (but do not click and drag) the cursor across the thumbnail of the movie clip. This action is called "Hover Scrub". Hover scrubbing is most valuable for quickly previewing the contents of a clip before you edit it into a sequence.
- Turn off Hover Scrub in the Project panel menu, or press Shift + H.
- When Hover Scrub is off, you can press the Shift key to temporarily enable Hover Scrubbing.
- Use the keyboard shortcuts I and O to set In and Out points for the clip while hover scrubbing.
- While hovering over a portion of a clip, double-click the icon, and the clip will load into the Source Monitor where the pointer was hovering. With this technique, Insert or Overwrite edits can be quickly made to the timeline.
- Click the icon. Drag the playhead across the slider to scrub the clip.
- After clicking the slider on the thumbnail, a clip playhead appears. You can:
- Drag the playhead to see clip contents, or to monitor audio.
Use J-K-L keyboard shortcuts to shuttle through the clip.
- Use the keyboard shortcuts I and O to set In and Out points for the clip while paused or shuttling. After marking clips with an In and Out point, a yellow bar shows where the In and Out points are located.
- To set a poster frame for the icon, drag the playhead or shuttle to the desired frame, and then press the Shift+P (Windows) or Command+P (Mac OS) keys. To clear the poster frame, press the Ctrl+Shift+P (Windows) or Option+P (Mac OS) keys.
- To view if the clip has been used in a sequence, hover over the filmstrip icon with the mouse and view the tool tip. The indicator also shows how many times the clip is used in the sequence.
- To locate the clip in a sequence, click the filmstrip icon and choose the sequence and sequence location (in timecode) from the context menu. The playhead will jump to the clip in the proper sequence.
In Premiere Pro CS5, and later, you can arrange clips in a desired order:
- To arrange items in Icon view, drag a different location in the grid. As you drag, a vertical bar indicates where the item will be located. If you drag an item to a bin, the item goes into the bin.
