Playing the Clips in Sequence


You can switch the bin to the sequence mode by pressing the "Sequence mode" button. The content of the entire bin appears in Sequence Viewer.

This mode allows you to rough cut a story directly in the bin.

This operation locks the content of the bin. Other users will not be able to access the bin while the sequence mode is active. It is not possible to switch to the sequence mode if the bin contains clips with different aspects and/or frame rates (you will be informed that the mode is unavailable).

If several bins are open in the sequence mode (or if Timeline is on the screen), Sequence Viewer will reflect the content of the active window.

During the playback in Sequence Viewer, the clip being played is marked with the red frame, and the red progress bar appears indicating the current position of the playback.

When you select a clip in the sequence mode, Sequence Viewer shows the In point of the clip.

Rearranging the Clips in the ClipBin

Simply drag the clips to the desired position in the ClipBin. Cinegy Desktop shows the insertion point as a vertical yellow line. To add a clip, drag it from another ClipBin or a Roll.

Trimming a Clip

Clip Viewer provides the means to trim the clip.

The In point represents the beginning of the In frame, and the Out point represents the end of the Out frame (or the beginning of the next frame).


Press the "In" button or hit the I or E key to trim your clip from the left. To delete the In point, press the "Delete In" button (inverse In).


Press the "Out" button or hit the O or R key to trim your clip from the right. To delete the Out point, press the "Delete Out" button (inverse Out).

You can hit the 6 key to play from In to Out.

Changing In and Out Points

Editing of In and Out points is disabled by default. Refer to the Global Settings article in the Cinegy Archive Manager Manual to find out how to configure global settings in Cinegy Archive Manager.

Master Clips Editing

It is possible to change the In and Out points of the non-entire master clips (which are not yet used in ClipBins or Sequences). To do this, select the master clip and use the "Change In/Out points" context menu command:


Having selected this command, Clip Viewer with the master clip will be open:

viewer with In and Out

Here define new In and/or Out points and close the Clip Viewer window. You will be prompted to apply your changes with the following message:


Press "Yes" to apply the newly defined In and/or Out points. The subclip of defined duration will be created.

Clips Editing

It is possible to set In and Out points manually for a certain clip in ClipBin. To do this, select the clip, right-click it and use the "Show metadata" context menu command:


In the appeared window, navigate to the "Predefined" field and manually change the values for In and Out points:


If new In or Out value is out of range, the value just remains unchanged.

Alternatively, the In and Out points can be changed directly from the ClipBin grid by editing the corresponding metadata fields on the "Predefined" tab:


Creating a Subclip

When you mark the footage with the In and Out points, you can either save the entire clip along with the new boundaries, or you can create a subclip based on the In and Out points you set to break longer clips into smaller segments.


Press the "Make subclip" button in the Clip Viewer toolbar. The new subclip will be placed in the bin where the current clip originates from, next to the original one.

Clips in ClipBins that are created with the subclip function are marked with a translucent triangle in the upper right corner of the thumbnail.

You can also use the subclip function to create and log a new master clip in a Roll. Refer to the Logging article for more details.
