7 Click the Recent Items menu, on the tab at the top of the Source Monitor, to browse between your recent clips. E Tip: Notice that you have the option to close a single clip or close all clips, clearing the menu and the monitor. Some editors like to clear the menu and then open several clips that are part of a scene by selecting them all in the bin and dragging them into the Source Monitor together. They can then use the recent items menu to browse only the clips from this short list. 8 Click the Zoom menu at the bottom of the Source Monitor. By default, this is set to Fit, which means Adobe Premiere Pro will display the whole frame, regardless of the original size. Change the setting to 100%. These Double Identity clips are high-resolution, and they are probably much bigger than your Source Monitor. You are likely to have scrollbars at the bottom and on the right of your Source Monitor now, so you can view different parts of the image. The benefit of viewing with Zoom set to 100% is that you see every pixel of the original video, which is useful for checking the quality. 9 Set the Zoom back to Fit. Playback resolution If you have an older or slower processor, your computer may struggle to play back very high-quality video clips. To work with a wide variety of computer hardware configurations, from powerful desktop workstations to lightweight portable laptops, Adobe Premiere Pro can lower the playback resolution to make playback smoother. You can switch the playback resolution as often as you like, using the Select Playback Resolution menu on the Source (and Program) Monitor. Timecode information At the bottom left of the Source Monitor, a timecode display shows the current position of the playhead in hours, minutes, seconds, and frames (00:00:00;00). At the bottom right of the Source Monitor, a timecode display shows the total selected duration for your clip. Later, you’ll be adding special marks to make a par- tial selection. For now, it shows the complete duration.
94 LESSON 4 Organizing Media Safe margins Old-style CRT monitors crop the edges of the picture to achieve a clean edge. If you are producing video for a CRT monitor, click the Settings (spanner icon) but- ton at the bottom of the Source Monitor and choose Safe Margins. Adobe Premiere Pro displays white outlines over the image. The outer box is the Safe Action zone. Aim to keep important action inside this box so that when the picture is displayed, cropping does not hide what is going on. The inner box is the Title Safe zone. Keep titles and graphics inside this box so that even on a badly calibrated display, your audience will be able to read the words. Click back into the Settings button at the bottom of the Source Monitor and choose Safe Margins to turn them off.
