X2PPro 008 - Duplicating Timelines


OK… this is not specifically about Premiere Pro, but as I jump back and forth between applications I’m realizing that there are some things that are not quite as “tight” as they ought to be. See if you disagree with me.

I beleave that PP and FCP try to remind us that it's a "copy" and maintain the reference to which one was copied... then you know that this timeline is a version of the work... You know?
this kind of relation in after seems not be relevant... I think it is more focus in productivity because you need, almost all the time, make a lot of versions of the same letts or title for the same work (name, tags etc) And the relation between comps are very well solved by the view of the FLOWCHART ...

I don't know... just make sense for me.
But I agree that the shortcut isn't shorter enougth.... (rs)

I never gave this any consideration about your wanting to know its a copy... but I still wish all my apps worked like AE does... MUCH better in My world...

i know i'm in the minority, but i hate keyboard shortcuts.

i prefer to do it with the mouse. i don't have PPro on the computer I'm on right now, but I'm pretty sure its: right click sequence, select DUPLICATE.

I can see arguments for either numbering system (label it a copy or automatically advance), but what might be more useful is for it to be automatically dated. Something like:

Sequence 3 - copy - Aug 14 2010 5:15pm


Sequence 3 - copy - Aug 15 2010 2:13am

and so on....

I do this manually now, with sequence names or when I save a project at the end of a day.

Well Brandon I'll tell you this.. you were born with 2 hands... the more you learn to use them the faster you'll be able to work.

As for your dates and sequence names... I could go on about those for a long time... I think I need to do a tutorial about that... but not tonight.
