Thread: workflow for logging my footage/sub clipping

    Default workflow for logging my footage/sub clipping

    Hi
    I'm new to this forum and it's my first post!

    I'm trying to work out the best workflow for cataloging my footage to use whilst on the move (I am planning a big trip), I generally do some of my other video work all within Premier. The problem I have is that I want to try do a quick first pass of my clips, create some subsclips and export out the vids I like. My questions:
    1) Can people recommend a good lightweight video/clipping app for osx?
    2) How do others manage their clips on the move? naming, sorting and generally cataloging their clips?

    Cheers

    Joe

    I never have to do it on the move. I always have the files that I shoot stored chronologically (time and date order), as that's the way my mind works. I know the footage that I've shot in my mind so I know what I have providing I remember what I called the main root folder.

    I might be weird but I remember every single shot I've ever taken over the last 13 or so years I've been filming.

    ... but that's a pretty useful sort of weirdness to have

    (I can't remember the shots I've shot whilst I'm on a shoot and depend totally on someone logging them for me - or, more commonly, "!hope" and get home to discover a missing key shot)

    Ha Ha. I know it's odd, normally I can't even remember why I've come into a room.

    Thanks for sharing! My memory sucks, I wish I could remember that well! I like to put keywords to clips in the title so I can remember what it was about.
