You selected clips and chose New Sequence from Clip. This did not make a sequence for you? It should create a timeline with all your clips intact. What happened exactly?
Hi, I've already spent about a half an hour trying to find a tutorial and I would rather not spend my valuable time searching for how to do this.
Apparently your time is more valuable than mine as I spent many years (and lots of money) going to college to learn the little things that comprise the edit. Good luck in your quest.
No I did not choose new sequence from clip. I can't find any "new sequence" anywhere, neither by right clicking
the clip nor in the sequence menu. What I did was drag each clip to the "new item" icon. Each clip was put into
it's own separate timeline, not all one timeline - so this didn't work.
Could you please explain step by step how to do this? I am not familiar with where all the commands are located, so you will have to explain that in detail.
Actually, I got a Bachelors degree and hold a job. This stuff isn't difficult, it's not a matter of being hard to do, it's a matter of knowing what to do which often times takes a long time to find on google. Spending a long time on google isn't for everyone. That's what forums are for. If you're going to post, at least please post a comment that is useful and helpful or at least attempts to be.

Select multiple clips in the Project Panel,
then drag-n-drop all of them at once onto the 'New Item' icon.

'New Sequence From Clip':
You need to select all the clips in thew project panel and then drag them into one sequence. If the clips are of the same dimensions/framerate/PAR, then whichever sequence was created based on the first clip will work for all of them. Otherwise, you'll need to decide which settings are optimal and make your sequence based on that. Once you have the right sequence created, it's just a matter of clicking nad dragging from the project panel to the timeline sequence. There are other methods as well.

Welcome, and thanks for your support.
Don't know why I missed the "New Sequence from Clip" the first time around. It must have been there but I just didn't see it. But the multi-select (I used ctrl and click to select all there was no lasso tool) and drag worked.
