    Question about subclipping. The way I do it is to open a rushes in a bin and view them in icon mode and then scroll the mouse over a clip and use put the in out points in and then crtl+u to make a subclip. All good no problem there. see screen grab:

    The issue is that when press enter to make the subclip the bin automatically scrolls all the way to the bottom of the list and I lose my place and have to refind it. Does anyone know a way of stopping this? It would massively increase my productivity in subclipping clips.

    Much obliged.

    Am on windows, Premiere Pro 19 v13.1.4 Build 2

    Please use Prelude. Your life will be so much easier.

    And if you really want efficiency, abandon sub-clipping all together and use the pancake editing method instead.

    Can you explain how prelude would replace subclipping?

    Is pancake editing where you have two+ timelines and you click and drag clips between them ? How would that replace going through raw clips ?

    Yes, two timelines and dragging clips from one to the other. By stringing out all b-roll into a timeline you can then just add markers to the shots you like. I find this to be more efficient than making subclips.

    You do all the subclipping in Prelude. Lay out a clip in the timeline, mark it up however and how many times you want and then send it over to Premiere. Done. Much easier interface. It’s what it’s made for.
