Projects are independent of each other. But I'd recommend using only one project and keeping the reels organized with separate sequences.
If you had made a copy of your project you could have deleted anything you wanted to withour it changing the original.
Perhaps you are looking at the copy and not the original?
Thank you for such a quick response.But i want seperate projects because i am forwarding my Adobe project only to colorist,and its looks much good, clean and less confusing when there are only those files which you actually needed.since my shooting ratio is 1:26 its a time taking painfull process to open the project itself.Workin on Power Mac with 32Gb ram still this guy take almost 15 mins to open.
Thank you So much
I've had projects with over 1,000 clips open in under a minute. Something is wrong if it's taking that long.
And you will need all the used clips for the colorist to work on the entire movie. You can easily remove unused clips once editing is done.
I suggest that you make many copies of your project. As many as you might need. Before you delete anything.
Name them carefully when you "Save As" so that you know what each one is for.
Now you can edit each one to delete files. But it will still take 15 minutes for each one, if it takes that long for the original.
I do have back up project all around from cloud to pendrive.As you suggested i will try "save as" option.But i never experiened this kind of an issue in any other NLE Softwares.What is logic behind this.Why Premiere behaves in this way any paricular reason.
Premiere would expect one to use Sequences for Reels or manage the assets differently.
Nothing stopping you create a Project for each reel and only ingesting the assets you require for each reel .
I dont understand why the Colorist needs the Projects all tidied up anyway.
Give them an EDL and the source files.
I think you got me wrong.I got a main project,which got a full length timeline with a duration of 120 minutes.Which i made in to 8 reels and save it as a new project, lets name it as "Reels Locked".And in my new project i deleted all the uncessary bins files ,sequences etc.But then i found it is also getting deleted from my parent project.
Now this is something i found weird. its a new Project.How its got linked with my parent project?
Thank you for your reply,i even disconnected my drive and made offlline and tried,no change.Adobe is so bounded to its "ROOTS",i think!!!
What I am trying to say is that I think you made some sort of mistake. I am sorry, but that has to be it.The projects are not tied to each other in any way.
Premiere Pro CC projects are nothing but XML files in a zipped format. Just text files They do not connect one to another in any way.
Edit: And CS6 files are the same XML just not zipped.
If your original was named "ALL REELS" and you made a copy using Save As, naming them "REEL 1", "REEL 2", "REEL 3", etc. - if after all the copies are made, you use "File Open" and you make changes to "REEL 1", there is no way that any of those changes would show up in "ALL REELS" or in "REEL 2", "REEL 3", etc
I'd have to agree with Steven on this one. The issue is almost certainly observer/operator error. PP can only open one project at a time, and what you do in one will not affect any other.
But it is that's why I am confused

That needs some one else to test and confirm for you.
Did you do a test at all with a new dummy project?
