Add clips

Drag clips directly to the Quick view sceneline from Windows Explorer (Finder in Mac OS). You can also use the Add Media panel to add clips to the Quick view sceneline from various sources.

After adding clips, use the Quick view sceneline to rearrange them. You can insert a clip before another, after another, or even split it before inserting.

Place a clip

  1. Drag a clip from Windows Explorer (Finder in Mac OS) to the Quick view sceneline. When you drag the clip over the Quick view sceneline, a vertical green line indicates the drop zone where you can place the clip. When the pointer changes to the insert icon, release the mouse button.

  2. Drag the clip from Windows Explorer (Finder in Mac OS) to the Monitor panel. The clip is automatically placed in the Quick view sceneline.

Insert a clip before another

  1. Drag the clip from Windows Explorer (Finder in Mac OS) on to a clip in the Quick view sceneline.

The new clip appears in front of the one on which you dropped it, and subsequent clips shift to the right.

Insert a clip after another

  1. In the Quick view sceneline, select the clip after which you want to insert the new clip.

  2. Drag the clip from Windows Explorer (Finder in Mac OS) to the Monitor panel or the Quick view sceneline.

The new clip appears to the right of the selected clip, and subsequent clips shift to the right.

Move a clip

  1. Drag a clip from a location in the Quick view sceneline to a different location before or after another clip. Place the clip in the drop zone (indicated by a vertical green line) when the pointer changes to the insert icon.

  2. Release the mouse button.

    The clip moves to its new location and all subsequent clips shift to the right.

Copy and paste clips

In Premiere Elements 2019, you can rearrange clips in a movie by copying and pasting them within your project. You can copy and paste multiple clips at a time. Clips that you paste are added to the end of the sceneline.

In Premiere Elements 2018 and earlier releases, clips are pasted to the Video 1 or Audio 1 track at the location of the current-time indicator. However, you can avoid this action by manually copying clips on multiple tracks. When you paste a clip in the Quick view timeline, the current-time indicator moves to the end of a clip. This feature enables easy and efficient handling of consecutive paste operations.

  1. In the Quick view timeline, select one or more clips in the movie. To select only the audio or video of linked clips, Alt‐click the desired clip.

  2. Choose Edit > Copy.

  3. In the Quick view timeline, position the current‐time indicator at the point you want to paste, and do one of the following:

    • To overlay the clips and replace existing footage on the track, choose Edit > Paste.
    • To insert the pasted clips and shift existing footage, choose Edit > Paste Insert.

참고:

You can also copy a clip’s attributes—motion, opacity, volume, and other effects—and paste them into another clip.

Zoom in or out

Premiere Elements 2018 and earlier releases

When you zoom in on the Quick view timeline, it is magnified around the current‑time indicator, letting you examine smaller increments of media. You can also zoom in as you add a clip, magnifying the location around the pointer rather than the current‑time indicator. This technique lets you see the exact placement of the insertion point before you release the mouse.

In contrast, zooming out displays more of the Quick view timeline, giving you a visual summary of the movie.

  1. In the Quick view timeline, do one of the following:
    • To zoom in or out as you add a clip, drag the clip to the Quick view timeline. Hold down the mouse button, and press the Equals (=) key to increase the zoom factor or press the Minus (–) key to decrease it.

    • To zoom in or out as you add a clip, drag a clip to the Quick view timeline. Hold down the mouse button, and press the semicolon (;) key to increase the zoom factor. Press the Minus (–) key to decrease the zoom factor.

    • To zoom in on the Quick view timeline, drag the Zoom slider to the right, or click the Zoom In button.

    • To zoom out of the Quick view timeline, drag the Zoom slider to the left, or click the Zoom Out button.

    참고:

    To toggle between viewing the entire movie in the Quick view timeline and the previous zoom level setting, click the Fit To Visible Timeline icon. Alternatively, press the Backslash (\) key. Make sure that the Quick view timeline is active before pressing the Backslash (\) key. You can also zoom in and out by pressing the Equals (=) or Minus (-) keys on the keyboard (not the numeric keypad).

    참고:

    To zoom out so that the entire movie is visible in the Quick view timeline, press the Yen sign (¥) key. Make sure that the Quick view timeline is active before pressing the Yen sign (¥) key.

    참고:

    The steps described to zoom in and zoom out of the Quick view timeline also apply to the Expert view timeline.

Delete a clip

Premiere Elements 2018 and earlier releases

  1. Select a clip in the Quick view timeline.
  2. Right-click/ctrl-click the clip and choose one of the following:

    Delete and close gap

    Deletes the clip and removes the gap by adjusting the position of one or more clips
