The only way to do this, where the Clips have NOT been combined with an Export/Share, into a new, discrete AV file, is to use a Clipboard extender, such as ClipMate. That will allow you to Copy your Clips from one Project, then Open a New Project, and Paste those Clips. There might be other Clipboard extenders out there, but ClipMate gets high marks from many users.
Thank you Bill. Is there any disadvantage to selecting the groups of clips in my current file, deleting the rest, then doing a "Save As" to create a new file? Or will I somehow be carrying over bits and pieces of my original file? Thanks, Stan
I have seen no downside to removing un-used sections of a Project, and then doing either a Save_As, or Save_As_a_Copy. Do NOT do a Save, when you have removed those sections, or you will overwrite your original Project file - something that you do not want to do.
I use this workflow often. An example would be when I create an intro, or outro, in a Project, and realize that it has use in other Projects. I will clean out that Project, leaving only those segments, that will likely be needed later on, and still in an editable mode. I then do a Save_As (if I want to keep that "new" Project Open, in Premiere), or a Save_As_a_Copy, if I just want it available later. For some more detail on the differences between the various Saves, see this ARTICLE.
Good luck, and a good point.
