Is there any way to make a subclip from a clip in a timeline? I mean one that will show as a subclip in the bin, not as a sequence... the difference being, if you double-click on a subclip it loads into the source monitor. If you double-click on a sub-sequence, it loads into the timeline and replaces whatever timeline was already there. I could do match frame, but that only gives the in-point, not in and out.
I think the best thing to do would be a video mixdown.
But a videomixdown takes rendertime. You could also dublicate your sequence (by selecting it in the bin and hit "strg+d"), and drag and drop the sequence in the sourcemonitor.
If you don't need the item in the bin you can try the shortcuts (strg+)alt+c or (strg+)alt+x, from the timeline, as well. They will make subclips from in to out and place them in the sourcemonitor directly, but no item in the bin.
Thanks... video mixdown is not the answer and I have tried the other solutions already, they simply create new squences, not actual subclips.
All I want to do is create individual subclips in a bin. I can ALMOST do this by going to a segment in the timeline, hitting "T" to mark in and out, then and doing a match frame - that loads the master clip in the source monitor and puts an IN mark at the beginning of the segment. So far so good, now if only there was a fast simple way to also mark the OUT point, I could create an actual subclip from the master clip in the source monitor. But the only way I can figure to get the OUT point is to play the clip and manually mark it.
It's just one of those things that I expect Avid to be able to do... it does so many useful things I was hoping this might be a function that is hiddden somewhere.
Ok, here's a long way around this.
Do a match frame at your in point(loads into source monitor). With phantom marks on it will display your out point, go to out point and mark it. Then click on the clip icon and drag it to a source bin.
I know this is acouple step process but maybe the only way.
To display phantom marks, right click on record or source monitor.
Perfect. That's exactly what I was looking for. I didn't know about phantom marks.
Glad to help. Another thing you could do is hold down the alt key when doing a match frame. That way marks are not cleared.
Actually it's even a little simpler than you described. Once I right-click on the source monitor and select phantom marks, it stays in that mode, so all I have to do is go into the timeline, position anywhere within a segment and hit T, then match frame, then make subclip. The In and OUT points are marked because I have turned on Phantom Marks, now all I have to do is make a subclip. This is exactly what I was trying to do. I just couldn't figure out how to get the OUT mark to show up. Since I have keys mapped for all these functions, it's a very quick process now, just three keystrokes and the new subclip is in the bin. Thanks again.
(EDIT) Correction, must position the indicator at the first frame of the clip, not anywhere in the clip. Easy enough using Y and U.
Uhhmmm.. I spoke a little too soon but this is at least heading in the right direction. A subclip made with phantom marks begins at the right place and shows IN an OUT points correctly, but the subclip saved to the bin (the way I'm doing it) is still the entire master clip. Because phantom marks are just that - phantom. So I'll go back and try it the way you actually described! It will take a few more steps to get it right. As you said originally.
So, it's six keystrokes instead of three. Still not too bad.
If you have a master clip marked, you can click and hold the master clip icon and drag it to a bin and it's creates a subclip.
dalbin: hold down the alt key when doing a match frame. That way marks are not cleared.
dalbin: If you have a master clip marked, you can click and hold the master clip icon and drag it to a bin and it's creates a subclip.
I think if you put these two suggestions together, you'll have your answer.

Im working on allnight movie and use to have the same poroblem, the solution is in make new seq paste the clip thre and press Autosync, thats how you gona make original avid dv expres subclip...
Hellooooo oo o
If you have an in and out point in the timeline and you matchframe when you're on the in point, the source monitor gets activated and than all you have to press is "W", (go to outpoint), to go to the corresponding out point. The reference is the in-out distance in the timeline. I used to do that a lot as an old fashioned tape-editor.
But what's the fuzz about double clicking a sequence? If you drag it from the bin to the source monitor it gets loaded. Many times I load a whole buch of sequences in the source monitor, (doing on-line work), and than choose them from the dropdown menu in the source monitor it self instead of from the bin. Don't you make things a little to complicate?
yes i undertand you very nice, but the trick in avid media composer is next:
First you mark in and out point
second you make subclip
and this comand is making seq, but if you select that seq in the bin and go to the bin menu and pres Autosync you gona get the true clip, which you can loaded after like a regular video clip. It will be no more seq, it gona become a clip
sory for bad speling :)
