Hello guys I’m Nitish Kumar back with a new article on Adobe Premiere Pro CS6. In this article I’m going to tell you about the tools which Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 offers for video editing. I assume after reading my previous article you are clear with the idea of all the panels in the Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 , mark in mark out, dragging video.
Well today we are going to learn few advanced techniques for editing and that will be learning about the tool box (this is what I call it ).
You will find these tools in between the project and time line panel. You can increase the size/dimension of this panel as per your comfort.
Well guys the name and position of all the tools in this panel are given below:-
First we are going to learn about the selection, ripple edit and razor tool. To demonstrate this I have imported three videos in the project panel and created there respective sequences(I hope you know how to do it, if not you should read the first two articles.)
As you can see I have imported three videos in the project panel and brought them in the timeline panel. The point to be noticed is that we have a gap between the two videos which I have intentionally to explain you the usage of tool box. Suppose while making a composition you selected few videos and made a transition, but somehow the transition didn’t sooth that much to you so what you can do is you can ripple delete the transition/the video which you don’t like and then continue your composition. The video which you just intend to delete first select it using the selection tool(the selection tool is your cursor in Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 so you need not worry to actually go and select the selection key). Then right click on the video which you want to delete, you get a pop up with lots of option search for ripple delete among them and then select it.
Once you have done that the part which you desired to delete will be deleted without leaving a blank space between the corresponding videos/transition(this is a very useful as you need not worry about the blank space which will appear black in the transition). If someone presses the delete button after selecting the video, there will be a blank space between the two transitions which will make your project look bad.
As you can see there is a blank space in between the naruto 247 and WCG video. To get rid of this what you can do is take your cursor in the blank region and then press right click and then select the option ripple delete in this way(actually second way) you can ripple delete the unwanted transition from the project.
Your ripple delete will do the rest of the job.
The ripple edit tool helps you to delete parts of a video which you don’t want without leaving a blank space. I would like to suggest to mark the in point of the video that is the point from where you want to keep the video and then we do the ripple delete.
Now select the ripple edit tool from the tool box and then keep it at the point from where you want to delete the video.
Keep the pointer at this point and then your cursor will change to a yellow color slider just drag the slider till the mark in point. After you have moved the slider you will see that the part of video which you specifically wanted to delete has been removed without getting a blank space.
So guys this is it for this article hope you find it beneficial, we will continue to learn about the tools in my next tutorial with some new ways of editing till then have a nice day().
