Just wondering about the quickest and most optimal way to go about working with longer .mp4 files in esampler and eclips?
Basically, I want to be able to:
- Quickly drop in an mp4 that is a few minutes long into Ableton
- Select the in and out points
- Drop that new selection into eSampler/eClips
- Convert to HAP to optimize if I like it.
I’ve tried dragging the mp4 into session view and making edits via Ableton’s native video preview window, then dragging the edited clips into eSampler but then doing the HAP conversion step doesn’t seem to work right. (It converts the entire longer clip.)
I think this was covered somewhere but I can’t remember where (sorry!) Any tips would be appreciated. I’ll make sure to write it down this time I promise!!! haha
