Larry Jordan Training: Premiere Pro CC – The Wrench in the Timeline

By Larry Jordan

Over the years, Adobe has worked to clean up the Premiere interface, remove the clutter and make the remaining tools easier to find and use. But, there is one tool hiding in plain sight that you may not have looked at: the Wrench in the Timeline.

Yup, there’s a wrench in the works for Premiere. Let’s take a look at what it does.

When you click the Wrench icon – located in the top left corner of the Timeline – it displays a menu of options, grouped into six sections, that control the display of the Track Header and clips in the Timeline. (The Track Header are those icons to the left of each track in the Timeline.)

When you click the Wrench icon – located in the top left corner of the Timeline – it displays a menu of options, grouped into six sections, that control the display of the Track Header and clips in the Timeline. (The Track Header are those icons to the left of each track in the Timeline.)

The first three settings determine how clips are displayed in the Timeline:

Show Video Thumbnails displays small images at the beginning of each timeline clip. These images don’t display if the vertical height of a track is too small to display them. A fast way to increase the height of a video track is to type: Cmd/Cntrl+[plus] (On by default.)

Show Video Keyframes allows you to see opacity keyframes applied to a clip. (Off by default.)

Show Video Names enables the display of video clip names in the Timeline. Turning these off can reduce clutter in large edits. (On by default.)
