Assembling Clips on the Timeline for a Rough Cut Edit

Although Premiere Elements doesn’t have a true storyboard workspace, the Media panel can be used in that way. You can utilize the Icon view and the Create Slideshow function to create your rough cut of your video. This is a great way to get a fast first draft of your production onto the Timeline in a good sequence right away, so you can start editing, adding special effects and titles, and so on.


1.gif Change the view to Icon view by clicking on the Icon button at the bottom of the window.

2.gif Rearrange the clips as needed by dragging and dropping until they are in the desired sequence. (You can Ctrl+click to select multiple clips and drag them all at once.)


3.gif Select the clips you want to add to the Timeline by holding down the Control key and clicking on the clips, or by drawing a marquee around the clips.

4.gif Select Create Slideshow from the More menu or from the Premiere Elements’ Project menu.

5.gif Select from the options on the Create Slideshow dialog, as needed, including the sequence order of the clips; whether to use video, audio, or both; and other factors.

6.gif Click OK to add the clips in sequence to the Timeline.
