Reimport exported file and make all the cuts same

Video Production Asked by Azz Kawa on December 28, 2021

In Premiere I am working on an hour long project with around 500 cuts from 3 cameras.

Since there is heavy grading and noise corrections to do, when I get this kind of footage my first export is only color, then I reimport the clip and do all the noise corrections.

This kind of workflow saves several hours on export and I have tried it many times so I do not plan to change it.

Question: Is there a way to make all the cuts on imported clip like they are on timeline ?

One Answer

It could be done automatically with scripting, but scripting premiere is undocumented and requires a bit of experience.

A workaround is to use the keyboard shortcuts. If you put the reimported clip on a new track in the original timeline you can use the key to jump to the next cut, then hit shiftctrl/⌘k to add an edit at the playhead across all tracks. Rinse, repeat. You could even map the add edit command to a single key to make it easier, e.g. x. Then its just a matter of hitting then x 500 hundred times. Something like Autohotkey (there's probably an equivalent for those still stuck with a Mac) can automate that process to make it even easier.

Or you could use a less insane workflow. Oops did I say that out loud?
