    Matching back to pre-computes...a good workaround

    Many thanks to Sep, who came up with a good workaround for matching back to pre-computes. In the timeline, mark clip on the pre-compute you wish to match to.  Then, press CTRL + ALT + c.  This will load the full pre-compute clip in the source monitor with the name of your existing sequence.  However, when you edit it into the timeline, the original pre-compute clip name will be there. The "find bin" command does not work, but I'm very happy just to be able to call back  the complete pre-compute clip to the source monitor.

    Again, thanks, Sep!

    Check that again, Larry.  If you'll note the name of the clip now in the source bin, it is the sequence name appended with ,sub.  In other words, Ctl-Alt-C is the keyboard shortcut for creating a submaster clip.  You will only get the marked area (that portion used in the sequence) put into the source bin.

    Cassano:

    What I meant by "complete pre-compute clip" was that both layers with the title key or matte effect are loaded into the source monitor, as opposed to two separate layers with no effect that results when you use the console command "subsys monpane" or something like that.  While you are correct that the source clip loaded is the same duration as the one in the timeline, you can use the extend function to lengthen it if you want.

    Re: Matching back to pre-computes...a good workaround

    And where is the problem cassano ?

    You can copy as much tracks  as you want, and then edit them by changing the track order (if you want!)  If you only select one track with in and out point this portion of footage will go into the source monitor, If you need longer, you can trim...... so again, where is the problem ?????

    No problem...simply put, CTL-ALT-C is the keyboard shortcut for putting a submaster clip in the source monitor.

    Obviously,

    However this can be used to "match back" precomputed footage in the source monitor, footage combined with alpha, There is no any other assertion !!
