Tip #1697: The Secrets in Clip Properties
The Clip Properties displays tons of technical details about a clip.
Most of the time, you don’t need to know all the technical details of the clips you are editing. But, when you do, Premiere has a hidden menu that can tell you a LOT!
To display it:
- Control-click a clip in the Timeline, Project or Bin panel.
- From the popup menu that appears, select Properties.
- The Clip Properties window appears (see screen shot).
NOTE: The contents of this window will change, depending upon what type of clip is selected.
I enjoy exploring this window from time to time simply to admire how much technical data Premiere needs to track and process for each clip.
The Data Rate Analysis window shows the file size of each frame in a video clip. Codecs that use variable bit rate encoding will vary in size per frame.
