    Match frame for precomputes

    I would like to be able to match back to precomputes just like you can with master clips. Sometimes you have a graphic in the timeline and want to find the bin it came from but when you hit match frame-no go.

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    You can already do this... you just need to know how. 

    The Search function works pretty darn well... I typed "match frame, console" and BLAMMO Surprise [:O]

    Also, "match frame, precompute" works...(since I figured that you wouldn't have known about the console command to use "console" as a keyword)

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    Yes but you shouldnt need  a console command to do this. The same issue occurs when you reconform a sequence with motion effects. If I can find the Bin, Find the source clip and then manually match frame, why cant a computer program do it?

    Also If you colour effect a rendered effect you need to re-render the effect. Why can an AVID not colour grade the already rendered pre-compute!!

    I have a 1000 more, if you want them.. . . .

    e.g.

    Why do motion effects on AVID still have the same bouncy top line they had in 1995 ? ? ? causing me to blow up all my motion effects by 102%. what a waste of time

    TBD

    That is a real pain, especially if you want to apply a glow, massive flicker over the whole screen, better to crop though or you soften the image.

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    Type in console :

    "subsys monpane debug"

    This allows loading of precomputes into source monitor,

    OK,, I agree 

    Why not select the clip you want to get in source monitor in the timeline, (in an out point if you want pressing T) Ctrl + Alt + C !and here it is !!!

    Way to go, Sep!  That not only loads the full effect clip into the source monitor, it does it without having to use the console command.  THANK YOU!!!

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    but with this operation you´ll only get the clipboard content and not the source clip!

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    thb:

    While the name ID above the source monitor identifies it as a sub-sequence with your current sequences' name, if you follow Sep's instructions, it does in fact match back to your pre-compute clip as one complete entity and loads it into the source monitor.  When you then edit that clip into your sequence, you will see your original pre-compute nomenclature in the timeline.

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    Now once it's loaded into the monitor is there any way to get it to matchback to a bin?

    Shayder:

    Not that I can figure out.  The "find bin" command doesn't seem to do anything.

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    EXACTLY. Somebody hands me a sequence with offline precomputes or imported clips with alpha channels, and I wanna find the bin these babies are in to batch import, I want to match back a precompute from a sequence to a bin (with a clip I match it into the player window, then I match that into the bin).

    Why can't I do this? Just fix it, please.

    You can highlight the sequence in the bin and do Batch Import from there.

    Re: Match frame for precomputes

    I'm adding my voice to that thread... 10 years later!

    I'm working on a project with many Photoshop files imported with their alpha channel. So in the Timeline, they show a little key icon and if I try to match frame one, I get the infamous message "Precomputes can't be loaded in monitors". Which is frustrating as they do open from the bin...

    What I need is not only to be able to match frame - otherwise I would just copy them as suggested in that thread. I match frame in order to Find Bin... So I have access to the alternatives to the one that's in the Timeline.

    Can we get that one day? Please?
