What is an extract in Adobe Premiere Pro?

An extract in Adobe Premiere Pro is a function that allows you to remove a selected portion of your video clip or sequence. This feature is particularly useful when you want to delete a specific part of your video without affecting the rest of the timeline. When you extract a section, Adobe Premiere Pro automatically closes the gap left by the removed portion, shifting the remaining clips to fill in the space.

To use the extract function, you simply set the In and Out points around the section you want to remove, then choose 'Extract' from the Edit menu or press the designated shortcut key. This will remove the selected portion and move the rest of your sequence together. This feature is a powerful tool for refining your video content and streamlining your editing process.
