Creating Subclips, Adding Markers And Ranged Markers

Resources / Guides
SUBCLIPS
A subclip is a smaller section of a Clip which is useful for breaking up very long Clips into shorter more defined sections. They can be used exactly the same as a Clip and can be assigned their own metadata. A subclip is just a reference file to the original clip with a different start and end point. No new media is generated when creating a subclip.

STEPS
1. Load a clip and mark the section you want to use for your subclip.
2. Do one of the following:
• Right-click inside the viewer and, from the menu that opens, select Make > Subclip.
• Click the Add Subclip button on the viewer.
• Create and use a keyboard shortcut for ‘Making a Subclip’.

3. The subclip is added to the Content Manager. Subclips are identified by a blue flag in the top left corner of tiles, thumbnails, and viewers.
