Hi Chaz, the first thing to do is go back to your autosave - hopefully you will be able to retrieve a version that is pre-patch. If not, you may need to re-import the clips.
Hope this helps

Thank you Andrew,
Unfortunately the file is where it is and it appears I will have to go in and fix each clip individually. I was still hoping there was a way for Premiere to revert a clip to its original state once its been messed with. Ah well, I suppose not everything can have a button.
Thanks again,

Hi Chaz, I don't know what version of pp you are using, but in cs5.5 you can right click.on a clip and move it back into sync. However, I haven't done this with a whole timeline of clips. However, this only works when you still have the red numbers showing how many frames you are out of sync. Note - don't choose slip into synced but move into sync. Otherwise, I think you will probably need to start again with the clips. Sorry not to he more help.

It's CS3, and there are frame indicators showing the offset, which disappear if unlinked with the video track, but reinstate when relinked. This made me believe if CS3 is smart enough to know this, why can't it revert? No such luck on finding this button/method though... if it exists. Thanks Andrew and keep up the awesome work.

Hi,
Awesome video. You're very thorough and easy to understand, so thank you for posting these. However I was wondering how to reestablish/ reset clips (in the timeline) to their original setting. I moved things around and after a patch update everything messed up. Is there a way to simply to tell a clip to return to its original state?
Thanks,

Thanks, it was great to learn some more short cuts. Your tutorials help me to get out of the rut of doing things the same old way.

I'm not sure whether Mr. Devis answers these questions but....

Up through CS3, there was a button in the Source window that allowed the editor to select whether he wanted both A and V, Only V or Only A to be inserted or overlaid to the timeline.
However, in CS5, this button has sort of been replaced by the separate drag buttons but I can't really use the insert or overlay function with that button.
If I just want to drop only the video to the timeline using the keyboard shortcut , or . it seems I have to deselect the audio track to enable this. I was wondering if there is a better way to do this task without deselecting the audio track?

Yes, you are right, the only way I know how to do this in CS5 is to deselect the audio track by right-clicking on the A1 in the audio channel header and un-cheching the 'Assign Source A1. If there is another short-cut, I don't know it - sorry. BTW - to show just the audio as with the button in CS3 - you need to click on the panel menu and choose 'Audio Waveform', just under 'Composite Video'. However this won't select just the audio, it will just show the audio in preference to the video. Andrew

In this tutorial Andrew Devis demonstrates a relatively new plug-in by RE:Vision Effects called RE:Match and how it can very quickly and accurately deal with the very common problem of non-matching cameras in Premiere Pro. A typical approach to dealing with say a white balance issue would be to apply the fast color corrector and use the white balance picker, but this can be very hit and miss, while RE:Match deals with the whole image using another image or clip as the reference to match too. This very powerful effect can save a great deal of time for an everyday problem and so earn its cost back very quickly as well as giving excellent and fast results. There is another tutorial showing how this effect works in After Effects as there is a slightly different way the two applications deal with reference images.

In this second tutorial on Media Encoder, Andrew Devis shows how to create preset groups for customers to ensure that you always export the same file types and minimize the risk of choosing the wrong presets when outputting multiple different sequences. Andrew also shows how to customize a preset to meet specific needs such as different frame rates or frame sizes etc and save that preset and add it to a preset group for the customer you created it for. Andrew then shows how to quickly select a smaller portion of the sequence so that you can test your output settings on a much smaller section of the sequence you want to export.

In this tutorial, Andrew Devis shows how to get a sequence from Premiere Pro into either Encore or After Effects using the 'dynamic link' function. Dynamically linking a sequence to either Encore or After Effects will mean that any changes made to the sequence in Premiere Pro will be automatically updated in the program it is linked to (Encore or After Effects). Andrew demonstrates both a simple 'drag and drop' as well as a menu driven approach to setting up dynamic link.
