In Premiere Pro Next, you can use the Media Browser to import individual items from another project. Which is exactly what you want to do with more than one project open. Would that work for you?
Hi Kevin - thanks for the suggestion.
I note in the browser there is a "preview files" folder with sub-folders which have clips from other projects. It does look like some of the clip edits I made are carrying over. The main reason I need this sort of thing is that I have a number of very large files that were captured from video tape which I have cut up into master clips and then was able to drag them into other projects in FCP. If I can do this in PP I would be set.
What did you mean by "..."cs next".
What I mean is that we have a new version of Premiere Pro coming out that will address your issue. We showed a preview of it at the NAB conference.
You will be able to import any clip from a previous project into a new project via the Media Browser. Doing so will not create new media, just links to the original media.
I think that would work for you.
That's good news. Looking forward to the next version.
