    Making film compilation video. Importing help

    owiseone61755 Community Member

      I'm new to Premiere Pro and editing in general.  I would like to make a video compilation that uses scenes from different films.  My sources will be various hi def MP4's and MKV's and AVI's of the film's themselves.

       

      When I import a film into Premiere it goes through a long "conforming" process and since I plan to use 20-30 different films I'm wonder if there's a better way to go about this.  Is there a way to snip the clips I want from the films either in Premiere or another program and then just import the parts I will be using rather than having 30 full films imported into my project?
