You could open them in a New Project. That is simply a matter of New Project> Import the files(assets).
You could also Create a New Sequence (timeline)in the project where they currently reside and make your show reel there.
Thanks for that.
I have done that before but some of the files are huge and if I bring multiple files in I am worried about the size.
I am only wanting to bring ten secs from a one hour project- multiply that by about twelve different projects.
That means I would import all twelve (one hour) projects to a new project. That would be huge.
Just had a brain wave!!! Would this work-
Go to One hour finished project -
Find 10secs I like
Open new timeline and paste the 10secs there
Save this timeline as new 10sec project
Then repeat for all the different projects
Import all twelve 10sec projects to new big project!
Craig said it all: You could also Create a New Sequence (timeline)in the project where they currently reside and make your show reel there.
I'm probably not making myself clear. These projects are big (each about 120gb) and they are all offline now for storage. They are all different projects (12 of them)so not the same project.
If I imported them all into one project I don't think that would work (too big 120gb x 12)
Apologies if i'm not getting what you are meaning or i'm missing something really basic!
Will my workaround work for getting hese small clips from the big projects?
HDV takes around 13 GB per hour, 12 hours would be around 250 GB total.
Scott. Export> Movie the Clips using Work Area Bar set in your timeline as avi/mov -unrecompressed(these are now Intermediates)
Import them into a new Project.
Or export the clips as MPEG2 Blu-ray. The only problem is that the audio becomes a separate file unless you purchased the Surcode.
