Lift And Extract Frames In Adobe Premiere Pro

When you are editing a film project with Adobe Premiere Pro, you can lift and extract frames from a sequence. This leaves an empty gap in the time line that is equal to the duration, or length of time, of the frames you have removed. This can be handy if you have a clip or frame of an exact length that you want to insert directly into a space without having to move your other clips around.

Instructions

1. Remove an entire clip, select it in the sequence and press the “Delete” key. You can select multiple clips at once by holding down the “Shift” key while clicking on each clip you want to select. When all of your clips are selected, press the “Delete” key.

2. Use the controls in the Program Monitor to specify the range’s “In” and “Out” points to remove an entire range of frames without closing the gap first (leaving the space free to insert new frames). Then click the “Lift” button in the Program Monitor window on the lower right, the third button from the right.

3. Remove an entire range of frames and close the gap (without leaving a free space) by using the controls in the Program Monitor to specify the range’s “In” and “Out” points, then click the “Extract” button. It is in the Program Monitor window on the lower right, the second button from the right.

4. Choose to removes frames from the time line and close the gap by “ripple deletion.” Select one or more clips in the sequence, and then go to the Edit menu at the top of your workspace. Then select “Ripple Delete.”
