    I don't understand the question.  The Copy process doesn't change anything.

    Select it in the timeline, CTRL-C (copy) , Next sequence....Ctrl-V (paste) at the playhead position .

    Select multiple clips from first sequence and copy them in one action, then paste them as one action into new sequence (ie. multiple clip copy and paste)

     

    That way you only need to park the playhead once

    I know I could move the playhead to that position in the new sequence and then paste

     

    That is the only way to paste anything in exactly the same relative spot in any application, not just PP.  You put the 'cursor' where you want the paste to go.

    Graphics programs are spacial based (x, y, z) and editing applications are time based .(temporal)

     

    You want a solution  to a time issue for what you asked and thats not possible (currently) - make a feature request..

     

    ...so that leaves you with my original "solution" or maybe ...

     

    duplicate the sequence and then delete what you dont want.

    You can just make one good sequence and then import that sequence into the other sequences (if that makes sense). You don't have to change the playhead position in this case and can just paste at time 0. Then you can copy this and paste it into other sequences faster.

     

     

    This will also build layers of sequences in your project and might help you in the future (like if you make changes later and want them to apply to all sequences). Its like building "Pre-compositions" in AE.

    He / she  would then still have to delete what he did not want ( just as I suggested previously).

     

    Duplicating a sequence is far faster than importing one also.

    Yeah. Meant duplicate or simply dropping the sequence down inside another. Have fun Skavan.

    A nested sequence  wont work without extra effort.

    You could put 5 sec of bars at sequence time zero, and select this clip and the one you want. Then you could paste into the new sequence at zero and delete the bars when you have finished.
