    Extracting smaller clips into AE

      If a person wanted to use After Effects to create a sequence of about 15-17 seconds consisting of many (say. . .40-50) 2 second clips, is there any way for After effects to open a 20-30min video in-program, create in/out tags or markers, and then just extract the footage from within the tags/markers, placing them in the time line? I understand that AE is not really an editing tool, but being that it is a composition based tool, it stands to reason that users would need to have a way to extract primarily small clips from larger videos. I have heard that you can you use PPro to export clips to AE, but this just seems like an inefficient method.
