Source Window in Premiere Pro

Today we will tell you about Source Window in Premiere Pro. The main purpose of Source Window is to allow you to view your clips at full resolution and set up in and out points. This description simplifies the Source Window, and it’s purpose seems minimal. Eventually, you can set in and out points in the Project panel.

You need video to put in the Source window in premiere pro, so first of all, if you don’t have a camera, you can always use your mobile phone.

Whatever video you shoot, try high definition video, it is better. This will improve your practice. But if there is a 720p resolution video, even better. And yes, don’t stop thinking that you don’t have the resources and I would suggest that you can at least learn from whatever resources you have.

If you think that you should have a big camera or an expensive mobile phone, then you would be able to do film making, it is not so at all. Start with whatever you have. It is best that, if you have a DSLR camera but if you don’t then your mobile phone is also sufficient.

Because you just have to shoot the video. But if you can’t do photo shoot and don’t have any fun content, then you have to download the video.

To download, I will tell you some websites which are very useful. Now you can see in the image screen the page of www.pexels.com is open.

From here you can download the video of your choice. In this you will get the best videos of high quality. The best thing is in Full Video that you get a license in whatever video you download.

The advantage of this license is that you can also upload the downloaded videos here to YouTube. Nobody will make any claim of copyright in this.

Another website is videvo.net whose interface you can see on the screen.

In this also you can download videos or images but you have to check whether you can upload it to YouTube or not. You will find this information in the description of the video.

Now we will upload any single video in Premiere Pro. Next we will see what we can do with this video in source window and what is the function of source window?

Now we will drag and drop our video to Premiere Pro. After that, as soon as you double click on the video, the video will open on our source window.

In the Source window there are two buttons, Mark In and Mark Out. Through these buttons, you can easily select any part of the video whatever you want to use. Its shortcut is i for mark in and o for mark out in keyboard.

Now drag and drop the selected video on the timeline. Whatever work we do in Premiere Pro, we do it on the timeline, the final result of which we see above.

I would like to tell you some more information in the source window. You will see two icons in the Source window. By moving the cursor on which you will see Drag Video Only and Drag Audio Only.

This option comes in handy when you want to use only one part of the video or audio from any video. Now we have dropped a part of the video on the timeline. Then we want to set another video clip or image in the middle of that video. So we have to open our source video or source image on the source window.

After that we see below, icon of Insert. This option automatically adds a source clip or source image to the middle of the timeline window. But by doing this our audio also gets disturbed.

For this we are seeing the line of audio on the timeline. The audio has to be locked by clicking on the lock icon on its left side. Doing so will adjust our source clip to the video in the timeline.

The keyboard shortcut for insert is , (comma). Another option will appear in the Source window, Overwrite. If you overwrite the source clip on the timeline. So your source clip will be adjusted at the point you selected on the video in the timeline, but the video next to it will be removed. This is the difference between insert and overwrite.

Apart from this, you can also select frame wise with right arrow and left arrow in the source window. Another option you will see is Export Frame. This allows you to use only one image of the video to drag and drop it onto the timeline.
