      How can I copy a part of a project (several clips editted together) to another project to combine them ?

          Have you tried import project/sequence?

            Hello Harm, thanks for your reaction but:


            When I import the sequence all my editted effects and extra soundtrack are lost.

            The same effect happens when I copy the wanted selection of clips. (Ctr C, Ctr V), so this does not help

              A stupid question, but how do you import a sequence exactly?

                Not stupid.


                Import a project.  You'll get a dialog box asking if you want the whole thing or just selected sequences.  Choose selected sequences and dynamic link will present you with a list to choose from.

                  Jeff, I was wondering how OP had been doing that...

                    Hello Harm,


                    Please see my answer to your question.

                    All effects and extra audio tracks are gone when I import a sequence, so for me this does not work...

                    Hope to hear from you

                      If you do not want to do any further editing of the section you wish to use in another project, you can export the section you want (export the work area only not the entire sequence) as a single clip.  Then import this to your other project.


                      If you do this make sure that you use a codec for the export that does not reduce the quality of your media.


                      Having said that, "Import Sequence" should import the clips in the sequence together with all applied effects and audio tracks.

                        Go to File / Import / Import Project / Import Selected Sequences.


                        Select the sequence you want and wait for the importing to finish. Then double click on the imported sequence in the project panel. That will open the sequence in the timeline with all individual clips, transitions and effects available (at least with CS6).

                          Thanks Harm: it works.


                          The only negative thing about it that the sequence is imported as one combined track for the video and one combined track for audio.

                          The only thing you can do is make te sequence shorter and change the audio level.


                          But I am happy to be able to do it; one have to be sure that the imported sequence is complete en perfect.

                            Is the sequence you imported the original multi-track sequence with the individual clips and tracks in the timeline or a master sequence? You have to use the original sequence.
