Re: Understanding the 'Source Panel' tools

This was a great review as I haven't been on adobe in over 1 year. Thanks for the info. One question - for some reason now when I try to use the source panel - I can drag the video to be used - but when I hit play - I cannot see the video. The vid is there as the time runs - but no vid display? Any ideas?

Hi Nick

To be honest I don't know why it's not working for you. However, you shouldn't need to drag it to the source monitor you should be able to just double click the item in the project panel and it will open in the source monitor.

I assume you're on CS5 or 5.5 so have you tried playing the little thumbnail in the project panel to see if that play?

If on CS6 does the clip hover scrub in the project panel?

Hope you get it sorted

Hi Al, you are right of course ... but I can't re-ipload it now!!! It is the comma key, I'm just dyslexic (I really am ...) LOL

Hi Andrew, Thanks for cluing me into the [jog] wheel. I love it.

If I may however point out an area for one of your "oops" titles. At roughly 9:47 into the video you say to use the apostrophe key for inserting a clip from the monitor panel to the time line. Earlier in the tutorial you say to use the comma key.

"Hope this has been helpful ..."

Here, Herb offers some insights into both the why and the how of their switch, with special attention to Premiere Pro CC's approach to multicam.
