Delete or insert a series of frames in a video

All the videos on CS 6 video editing show how to trim the ends off a video but they don't show how to cut a sequence of frames from within the video. I might also like to copy a series of frames from one video and insert them at a point in the middle of another video.
Could someone direct me to a tutorial or writeup to do video editing which includes cutting and inserting frames?

As C.Pfaffenbichler points out, the Clip on the Timeline is but a representation of the "master Clip," and is called an Instance of that Clip. What you see on the Timeline is but a series of proxies, of data copied from the Imported Video Clip. Other than as the display on the Timeline, they do not really exist anywhere. It is not until one Exports the Timeline, that the program follows the links to the original "msaster" files, and extracts the data, shown on the Timeline, to Transcode the Exported file.
Now, as he also pointed out, you can have any number of those Instances, and they can be altered, via their In & Out Points, to display different portions of that original file, as many different times, as needed.
If you click+drag on the Tail of a Clip, you are effectively changing it Out Point. If you click+drag on the Head, you are effectively changing the In Point.
Say that you wish to "cut out" a middle portion of a Clip. Just drag two Instances of that Clip to the Timeline, and click+drag on the Tail, to set the Out Point of the first to where you want your "Cut" to be. Click+drag on the Head of the second, to the point that you wish the Clip to begin again.
In Adobe Premiere Pro (the full-featured video editing program, or NLE), there are many ways to Cut Clips on the Timeline. I will not go into all of those, as I do not work with Video in PS, and there might be differences, and limitations - many NLE features might not exist in PS. However, you might explore PS a bit, as they might. One way in PrPro is to use the Razor Tool (shown as Scissors in PrElements), to Cut the Clip. Then, on can Select the area that was Cut, and Delete it. One can also use the modifier keys in that Deletion, to determine what happens, or does not happen, to Clips to the right on the Timeline, i.e. one can Delete that portion of the Clip, and leave a gap, or one can Delete that portion, and close the gap, causing everything to the right to close up. Even in PrPro, one has not touched the original material, just the Instance of that, via the proxy that we see on the Timeline. Nothing has really been done yet - until Export.
Good luck, and please report what you find in PS, regarding Cutting Video, as I will learn somethng new too!

  • Receiver JDBC: Error while doing the Deleting and Inserting new records

    Hi All,

    Re: Combining DELETE and INSERT statements in JDBC receiver
    In the above link its shows for single mapping. In my scenario I am using multi mapping for collecting idocs in BPM. If I configured for normal mapping then it is working fine(Deleting existing records and Inserting new record). Whenever I am using multi mapping then I am getting following error in the receiver JDBC communication channel u201CError while parsing or executing XML-SQL document: Error processing request in sax parser: No 'action' attribute found in XML document (attribute "action" missing or wrong XML structure)u201D . Can you please tell me what might be the problem.
    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi !
    check this out:
    JDBC - No 'action' attribute found in XML document - error
    JDBC receiver adapter: No 'action' attribute found in XML document
    It appears that the inbound payload (the one that is going from XI to the JDBC adapter) does not have the requiered tag to specify which SQL action to execute in the receiver system. Maybe the multimapping is not creating the desired output message format.

  • Delete and Insert logic depends on Flag JDBC Receiver

    Hi Experts,
    My Scenario is Proxy to JDBC. Present I am uisng 2 ststements for the receiver structure one for Delete and another for Insert. When I get a message from the source system, Database will be deleted and records will be inserted. Its working great.
    Now one more new FLAG filed is added in the source structure. My requirement is when i get '0'  value in the flag filed, I want to delete the database and need to insert records. and If value '1' comes in the FLAG filed, records needs to be inserted in the database table with out deleting old records.
    How can I achive this? thanks in Adv

    HI Puneeth,
    I am using both the Delete and Insert statements in one DT.
    Flag is a filed name which is in the source DT .  if '0' comes in this Flag then tables needs to be deleted and records needs to be Insert. If value 1comes only records needs to be Inserted.
    how to do mapping with the key filed?
    This is my Input xml
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>
    - <n0:RedMatchDB_EmployeesQualification_MT_OB xmlns:n0="" xmlns:prx="">
    This is the output xml deleting is nat happening only records are Inserting.
      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?>
    - <ns0:RedMatchDB_EmployeesQualification_MT_IB xmlns:ns0="">

  • Setting priority of order of DELETE -vs- INSERT commands in Oracle database

    I have an .NET application which has a DELETE command (e.g. Delele from MyTable where id = 1) immediately followed by an INSERT command (e.g. INSERT INTO MyTable (id, field1, field2) values (1, 'x', 'y').
    We are not using transactions, so the commands are independent.
    MyTable has a unique constraint on the id column.
    On occasion, I am getting an error "ORA-00001 : unique constraint ... violated."
    I speculate that the INSERT command is being processed by the database before the DELETE command.
    Would you know if the priority of INSERT commands can be set higher to DELETE commands? How could I set this on my database (for testing purposes)?

    One piece of the puzzle that I nelgected to mention...
    This DELETE/INSERT scenario is happening in an ASP.NET application going through Oracle's .NET driver (ODP.NET).
    The DELETE and INSERT are run with the autocommit feature of ODP.NET (I assume this translates into a separate transaction for each of these two statements).
    We have the "connection pooling" enabled (for the ODP.NET). Maybe because of the connection pooling, might ODP.NET be reversing the order of the DELETE and UPDATE commands?
    A problem I have is that I cannot see this problem occur on my server: the problem only occurs on the customer's server. He has reported several occurances of the problem.
    Do you think the Oracle session tracing will be of help if I cannot reproduce the problem (on my machine)?
    Thanks for you help so far!
    (clarification: The DELETE is run and "auto-committed", the immediately, the INSERT is run and "auto-committed")

  • Please help! i need to make multiple custom shaped frames for different videos in one scene and cant work out how!

    hi there!
    im really stuck on this and cant work it out i hope you guys can help! i have been trying to make a single shot or scene whatever you want to call it with multiple videos playing all at the same time in it but i want them all to have their own custom shape. i know that i can just put them together into one frame and play them at once but they are all the original rectangle shape they where filmed in and i could put a mask over each one to make it a circle but i want to make each one a custom shape for example if you where to make a face out of 4 videos and one was the shape of the main part of the face one was the eyes one for the hair and one for the mouth now i would have to make the shape of each video the right shape for the corresponding body part then place them on top of each other and then i would have a face made from looping videos. i cannot work out how to make the frames of each video a custom shape after searching tutorials please can someone help me with this it would be greatly appreciated as it is a collage project. thanks very much for your time in the matter Josh.

    ok thanks yea thats helped alot im new to this so thats why it seems basic to you but not me. i have tryed to find out through tutorials but could work it out. im now able to do this but i want to draw my mask free hand and it seems you can only place points with the pen tool? is this the only way to make the shape of my mask? or example in photoshop which i know well i can use a paint brush and paint any shape i want to make a mask but i cant see how to do that in after effects? any help on this would be greatly appreceated. thanks josh

  • In fcp7 there is a "close gap" option so you don't have to highlight and move everything every time you delete a small section in the middle of a video. Is it possible to do this in fcpx? I can't seem to find it...Thanks!

    This isn't the actual clip, I fixed it by highlighting and moving everything over but it'd still be a good thing to know for the future. This is essentially the situation i'm talking about. I would never use it for something this simple, but when more complicated editing is being done it isn't so easy to just move all the clips over.

  • Why did frame rate of video shot on iphone 5 change from 30 fps to 24 fps?

    Why did frame rate of video shot on iphone 5 change from 30 fps to 24 fps?

    My understanding (which could be wrong) is that the iPhone shoots video with a variable frame rate. This is likely so it can optimize video for FaceTime. So uncomplicated scenes can be shot with a lower framerate, and active scenes will be shot with a higher framerate.

  • Extraction Key Frames from a video

    Hi all,
    I would like to know what is the best way to extract keyframe from a video.
    My Status (butr I can cahnge it)
    I'm Marco and I'm using JMF; I need for an help because I don't know how to extract keyframes from AVI and MPG files.
    I'm using the code posted in this forum for extracting all frame in a video with the adding of an if expression that in the accessFrame method that I report below:
    void accessFrame(Buffer frame) {
    BufferToImage stopBuffer = new BufferToImage((VideoFormat) frame.getFormat());
    Image stopImage = stopBuffer.createImage(frame);
    try {
    BufferedImage outImage = new BufferedImage(size.width, size.height, BufferedImage.TYPE_INT_RGB);
    Graphics og = outImage.getGraphics();
    og.drawImage(stopImage, 0, 0, size.width, size.height, null);
    Iterator writers = ImageIO.getImageWritersByFormatName("jpg");
    ImageWriter writer = (ImageWriter);
    File f = new File(frame.getSequenceNumber() + ".jpg");
    if ((frame.getFlags() & Buffer.FLAG_KEY_FRAME) != 0){{color}
    ImageOutputStream ios = ImageIO.createImageOutputStream(f);
    } catch (IOException e) {{color}
    System.out.println("Error :" + e);
    So, I'm able to extract some keyframe, but i'm not sure it is the correct way and my dubt grows out of the fact that without the if expression highlighted in red, it seems that I have more keyframes (those ones with flag ==1040). Another problem is that it works only with AVI because MPG instead of 1040, they have alternate sequence of 32 and 1056.
    Cheers and thank u

    With the code yoodleyee posted, frames can be extracted and converted from the raw decoded format into images, but no guarantee that the frame extracted is a key frame, isnt it?Actually, there is such a guarantee...because the FrameGrabbingControl isn't implemented in any video format that uses keyframes. So, if it works, then every frame of the video is a keyframe, and it won't work otherwise.
    How can key frames be detected with JMF and then extracted with the code provided? Any tutorial or sample code about that?They can't be. You can write a custom codec that will give you access to every frame, regardless of the format, if you're wanting to get all of the frames.
    Example: []
    But JMF doesn't have any way of dealing with key frames directly, at least that I am aware of.
