Set Keyboard shortcuts in Premiere Pro CC

You can use the keyboard GUI to see which keys have been assigned and which are available for assignment. A tool tip reveals the full command name when you hover over a key in the Keyboard layout. When you select a modifier key on the keyboard layout, the keyboard displays all the shortcuts which require that modifier. You can also press the modifier key on the hardware keyboard to achieve this result.

When you select a key on the Keyboard Layout, you can view all the commands that are assigned to that unmodified key and all other modifier combinations.

From the Premiere CC menu, select “Keyboard Shortcuts.”

Open the panel

Create Multiple Bins

A good way to keep you footage organized is to create nested or multiple Bins inside other bins.

Create a bin called footage, import your footage.After importing your footage and previewing the clips, create new bins inside the footage bin to help you keep organized.

To create a bin inside another bin, make sure the bin is selected by clicking on it, then hit the bin icon in the lower right of your project window.

bin window

Above is a sample of nested bins inside the footage bin.

Bin tips

  • To move an item into a bin, drag the item to the Bin icon. You can move bins into other bins to nest them. Dropping an item into a bin does not automatically open the bin.
  • To display the contents of a bin, in List view, click the triangle beside the Bin icon to expand it, or double-click the bin.
  • To show the contents of an enclosing (parent) bin when you’re viewing only the contents of a nested bin, click the Parent Bin button  in the Project panel. You can continue to click this button until the top-level contents of the Project panel appear.
  • To open or close more than one bin at a time, Alt-click (Windows) or Option-click (Mac OS) multiple selected bins.

Organize your Metadata Display

You can choose the info you want to show in your project menu bar. Since it’s not recommend to change clips names, another way to organize a label clips is to set up your metadata display to show the Description panel.

Metadata display

Step 1

Right Click on the grey area in the project panel just to the right of the name icon until you see the Metadata Display icon, then select it. Once selected you will see the below window.

Open the Premiere Pro Project Metadata by clicking the icon to the left of the name.

open metadata

Step 2

Choose the items you want to show and deselect the items that you choose to hide. As a starting point choose the options below. You can always add or subtract options as needed.

metadata display

See above for a good beginner option is to choose, Description, Media File Path, Status and Good.

Multiple Sequences or Sequence Versioning

This is an optional workflow, but highly recommended for projects beyond 3 minutes in length.


After creating a Sequence Bin , it is a good practice to create multiple sequences that contain— interviews, broll, stills or rough cuts. This helps in organization of footage, especially in large projects. Instead of working from a single sequence which can get messy and complicated, you can have multiple sequences then just copy and paste clips between sequences. You can also right click a sequence and duplicate it in order to tweak or version the sequence.



Create a subclip from the Project panel

You can create a subclip from source clips or other subclips that are made up from a single media file.

  1. Double-click a clip in the Project panel to open it in the Source Monitor.
  2. In the Source Monitor, set In and Out points for the subclip. Either or both the In point and Out point must differ from the source clip In point and Out point.
  3. Do one of the following:
    • Choose Clip > Make Subclip, enter a name for the subclip, and click OK. CMD+U is the short cut.
    • Deselect the Restrict Trims. You can also rename subclips!restrict trims
  4. The subclip appears in the Project panel with a Subclip icon speakernewclipclip speaker. The icon varies depending on the media type.

Note: Some editors find creating subclips as an alternative way to organize an edit.

Add markers

You can add markers on the Source monitor, Program monitor, or on the Timeline. Markers added to Program monitor are reflected in the Timeline. Similarly, markers added to the Timeline are reflected on the Program Monitor.

In Premiere Pro, multiple markers can be added, allowing a user to add multiple notes and comment on clips on the same location in the Timeline.

  1. Move the playhead to the point where you want to add a marker.
  2. Select Marker > Add Marker, or press the M key.
  3. To edit the marker, double-click the marker icon to open the Marker dialog box.

NOTE: It’s important to add a name, description, color label and duration to the marker.

What is Morph Cut?

Morph Cut is a video transition in Premiere Pro that helps you create more polished interviews by smoothing out jump cuts between sound bites.

A common challenge that comes with editing footage with a “talking head” is that the subject can stutter, make frequent use of “umms”“uhs”, or unwanted pauses. All of which keep you from having a clean, continuous sequence without the use of jump cuts or cross dissolves.

Now, you can effectively clean interview dialog by removing unwanted portions of a clip and then apply the Morph Cut video transition to smooth out distracting jump cuts. You can also use Morph Cut to effectively rearrange clips in your interview footage to ensure a smooth flow without any jumps in visual continuity.

Morph Cut uses an advanced combination of face tracking and optical flow interpolation to create a seamless transition between clips. When used effectively, a Morph Cut transition can be so seamless that it looks as natural as shooting the video without unwanted pauses or words that can break the narrative flow.

In the Effects panel, choose Video Transitions > Dissolve > Morph Cut and drag the effect to the edit point between clips in the Timeline.

After you apply the Morph Cut effect, analysis of the clip begins immediately in the background. As analysis begins, an “Analyzing in background” banner displays within the Program Monitor indicating that analysis is occurring.

You are free to work with the footage or elsewhere in the project while the analysis occurs.

After analysis is complete, a symmetrical transition is created, centered at the edit point. The transition duration matches the default of 30 frames specified for Video Transition Default Duration. You can change the default duration using the Preferences dialog.

analyzing morph jump cuts

If the lip movements and voice are not exactly in sync or the results are not satisfactory, change the In and Out points or adjust the duration of the transition.

Stabilize with the Warp Stabilizer effect


To stabilize motion using the Warp Stabilizer effect, do the following:

  1. Select the clip you want to stabilize.
  2. In the Effects panel, choose Distort > Warp Stabilizer, and then apply the effect by double-clicking, or by dragging the effect to the clip in the Timeline or the Effect Controls panel.

After the effect is added, analysis of the clip begins immediately in the background. As analysis begins, the first of two banners displays in the Project panel indicating that analysis is occurring. When analysis is complete, the second banner displays a message that stabilization is occurring. You are free to work with the footage or elsewhere in the project while these steps are occurring.

Replace clip from Source Monitor

You can replace the source footage for clips in the Available Media. Replacing the source footage for a clip links it to a new source file. When you replace footage:

  • Instances of the clip are retained in the Project Assets panel and the Expert view timeline, with the corresponding In and Out points.
  • All the applied effects are intact.

However, the clip is linked to the replacement footage instead of its original footage. For example, you can replace footage with a soundtrack in one language with identical footage with a different-language soundtrack. All the edits that were made to the original footage are retained, although the source footage is replaced.

  1. In the Project Assets panel, select the clip for which you want new source footage.
  2. Select Clip > Replace Footage, or right-click/ctrl-click the clip and select Replace Footage.
  3. In the Replace Footage dialog box, select the new file and click Open.

The new footage replaces the old footage. All instances of the old footage are linked to the new footage.


Roll Edit to create Split Edits (L-cut or J-cut)

Spit edits are great ways to smoothly transition between clips.

Step 1.

From the tool bar, select the rolling edit tool, see below, you may need to click and hold if the tool is not selected.

Step 2.

Delink the the Linked selection Tool as you are only going to Roll the Video, not the audio, it will be left in place under the previous clip.

Step 3.

Now place your cursor — which should now be the rolling edit tool — between the clips.

Step 4.

Slide the clip to the right or left depending the cut L or J you are trying to create. You now have a split edit, See below.

Basic Color Correction*

Step 1.

Choose the Color Workspace from the top menu, pictured below. Or you Can choose > Window>workspaces>color


Step 2.

Select the clip on the timeline that needs correcting. You will now see a new Color Editing window on the right of your workspace. Double click the grey area next to basic color correction if it is not already open, See Below:

Step 3.

Select the Auto Button and preview the auto changes. If these look good, then you are done. You can make adjustments using the sliders if the auto selection doesn’t look good.

Note: Please only make minor changes that don’t standout from the rest of the video, If you are in need of major correcting please ask a Fellow or Prof. For help. Or Even better find another clip to use.

color editing window

White Balance Correction

If you are in need of some basic white balance correction, click the eye dropper next to the WB Selector text in the basic color correction tab, then use the eye dropper to click on an area of your clip in the source monitor that should be white. Once clicked, the change will be made to correct the color. It does a good job with clips that are slightly in need of correction. If the clip is overly blue or orange, it will not save it. It would be time to find another clip if you can’t get a good white balance that feels natural to the rest of the clips in your timeline.

Copy/Paste Attributes

After applying color correction and or WB effects to your clip you can select the clip in the timeline, hit the CMD+C to copy the clip and then select others clip(s) that you would like to paste the changes to. After copying the clip, select the clips you would like to paste the correction onto and then right click the selected clip and choose paste attributes from the pulldown menu. Premiere will then ask which attributes you would like to paste.

How to Replace Footage in Adobe Premiere Pro

Replacing a piece of footage globally in your Adobe Premiere Pro project is an incredibly useful feature to fall back on, especially in the later stages of your project.

It makes it easy to update each new version with the latest iteration of color or special effects. Meanwhile, you'll still retain the freedom to continue editing in the original project.

Here's how to get started.

Sometimes, you'll be coloring a bunch of different clips outside of Premiere Pro. Other times, you'll be applying other effects or adding CGI. As you work progressively through each version, you will need to update the clips in the timeline that are being built upon.

Adobe Dynamic Link is a great way to do this if your work is confined to the Adobe Suite exclusively. If you're working with third-party software, however, replacing footage in the following workflow will allow you to pivot quickly in order to update your timeline with last-minute changes.

You can apply this technique when working through each round of color grading (and all of the notes from collaborators that will inevitably need to be addressed and resolved). You can also use this when perfecting on-screen graphics and titles. An editor's work, as they say, is never quite finished.

In your timeline, right-click on the clip that you would like to replace. Click Reveal in Project to bring it up in your bins.

Once revealed in the bin, right-click again and select Replace Footage in the context menu.

You'll be able to select the new clip that you want to use to replace the clip in the timeline. Choose the clip, and click Select.

Now, the replaced clip sits in the bin—fully updated, automatically, with the in and out points that each instance in your project calls for.

You will notice that the clip has been replaced in your timeline as well. This is the real appeal to this way of making a swap globally. Everywhere that the clip has been used, it will be replaced.

Could it be simpler? Absolutely not. This is one of our favorite Premiere Pro tools for editing projects over long periods of time.

Swapping and Swerving Like a Pro

Once you know what to do, replacing footage is simple. Replacing footage globally can streamline your workflow, making it even easier for you to finish your project.

Applying Specialized Editing Tools in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5

Replacing a clip and replacing footage

Sometimes you may want to replace a clip with another clip and have the new clip fit in the same place and inherit all the effects of the original clip. For example, you may create an opening sequence for wedding videos that you use over and over for new projects. By replacing the clip with a new clip, you can save a lot of time by not having to rebuild the opening sequence from scratch.

Adobe Premiere Pro provides two ways to do this: Replace Clip and Replace Footage. You’ll explore them both.

Using the Replace Clip feature

Let’s start with the Replace Clip feature:

  1. Open Lesson 08-02.prproj.
  2. Play the Timeline. Notice that the same clip is played twice as a picture-in-picture (PIP). The clip has some motion effects that cause it to spin onto the screen and then spin off. You will learn how to create these effects in a later lesson.

    You want to replace the first PIP clip (bike low in the Video 2 track with a new clip called But you don’t want to have to re-create all the effects and timing. This is a great scenario for using the Replace Clip feature.

  3. Locate the clip, and drag it on top of the first bike low clip. Do not drop it yet. Notice that it is longer than the clip on the Timeline.
  4. Press Alt (Windows) or Option (Mac OS). Notice that the replacement clip now becomes the exact length of the clip it is replacing. Release the mouse button to complete the Replace Clip function.
  5. Play the Timeline. Notice the first PIP clip has the same effects but is using the new footage. The second PIP clip remains unchanged.

Using the Replace Footage feature

The Replace Footage feature in Adobe Premiere Pro replaces footage in the Project panel. This can be a huge benefit when you need to replace a clip that recurs several times in a sequence or multiple sequences. When you use Replace Footage, all instances of the clip you replace are changed anywhere the original clip was used in any sequence in the project.

  1. Press Ctrl+Z (Windows) or Command+Z (Mac OS) to undo the Replace Clip function you just performed. Play the Timeline to see the original bike low shot. mov clip being used in both picture-in-picture instances.
  2. Select the bike low clip in the Project panel.
  3. Right-click (Windows) or control-click (Mac OS) the bike low clip, and choose Replace Footage from the menu that appears.
  4. Navigate to the Lessons/Assets folder, select the bike rides into file, and click Select (Windows) or Open (Mac OS).
  5. Play the Timeline, and notice that both PIP clips were replaced with the new footage while they maintained their timing and effects.
How to Replace Footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC (2018)

Hey! What’s happening! I’m Alli.

Sometimes you gotta replace clips and premiere. Maybe you’ve already put together your edit and time each cut of your footage to music and you want to replace a particular clip on your timeline with a new one. Or maybe like in my case you open up an older version of Premiere Pro or you edited with MKV files and the latest version of Premiere no longer supports those files so you gotta replace them.

Let’s hop into Premiere Pro and I’m gonna show you a really fast way to do just that:



We’re in Premiere Pro and I have my offline MKV file on the timeline that I need to replace with my converted mp4 version of it. It’s a screencap from the software OBS, and if you’re looking for a good screencap program, Will shows you how to use OBS and convert MKV files in the video linked above. So to replace this clip, we can right-click on it and choose to reveal and project, and there’s the clip highlighted let’s right-click on it and choose to replace footage. This is the clip I’d like to use, so I’ll select it, press select and our Clips now been replaced with the exact same footage and timing of the clip that we had already edited on my timeline when it was an MKV file. There you go back to your replace footage in Premiere Pro. What else you really wish you knew how to use or do in Premiere, let me know in the comments below because there’s a pretty high chance I’ll create a tutorial on how to do just that.

Thanks for checking this video out. If you want to be a better filmmaker subscribe to our channel because we release weekly videos all about filmmaking.

I’ll see you in another video.

How to Replace Footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC (2018)

How to Replace Footage in Adobe Premiere Pro CC (2018)

My unique situation is that during COVID we remotely shot King Lear with 25 different people around the country, all with their own cameras and green screens. So as I edit a scene, I choose material from various takes and razor multiple takes up like crazy to get the performances put together.

But now I have to use After Effects for compositing, effects, backgrounds, etc. I will be replacing the exported AE version of the footage, but because I had so many little cuts it was impossible (I think) to set in and out points at multiple places in one Take. So Replace footage does replace all the footage where it is, but not at the same time code, it’s always at the start.

Is there an easier way? I guess I could make multiple duplicates of the takes, each with their own in and out points, but that seems massive, especially in scenes with 8-10 people.

Should I choose the basic takes I know I’m going to use and do all the compositing/effects in AE first, then import it into Premiere and chop it up on the timeline? I’m worried about setting something in stone with AE and then finding it doesn’t work dramatically and needs changed.

Every tutorial about replacing footage is geared for people who want to replace one clip with a different clip, not the “same” clip which has been rendered out from AE. I don’t think “replace with AE comp” helps either, right? We’re talking a 2-hour movie with massive amounts of little shots, reaction shots, etc.

I’m at my wits end and really need a solution — this is going online for free as a service to the public during this tough time, and it’s hard enough to key and try to color match 25 different cameras from literally all over the US and two other countries.
