    How to export files in CS4 to a new project?

    zjimbo Level 1

      I am trying to create a "Master" project by exporting or combining 3 of my edited projects into a distinctive project.

       

      I have tried creating a New Project, as well as opening the first project of the Master series and trying to export the other 2 files into it.

       

      With CS3 all I did was double click in the project box and import.

       

      In CS4 it says the export files are not responding.

       

      I can export single clips but not a complete project file.

       

      It was so simple in CS3, but now it does not work in CS4; what's up.

       

      Thanks Jim

            One thing I found ont. Not sure if it matters, but I noticed me Encoded Files folders were empty.

             

            All the other files Auto Save, Media Cashe ect. are full.

              Walk me through this.

               

              You create a new Master project.  You right click in the Project pane and select Import...  You navigate to Project A and click on that Premiere Project file.  What exactly happens next?

                Thanks for all the input.......I got it fixed; I think.

                 

                I reloaded CS4. And this time when I got to the "Import not responding" I clicked "Allow it to respond" or something like that. I had done that before but all I got was a clip or clips, not the projects. But this time it worked, I got the whole project.

                 

                I had to double click the grayed file in sequence #1.

                 

                t then went to a new TL still called seq #1.

                 

                Then I went back to the origional TL and deleated the grayed area.

                 

                Then I went back to second TL: "Edit" / "Select all" / "Edit" / "Copy".

                 

                Then back to the origional Seq #1 or TL: "Edit" / "Paste" / "Save".

                 

                Then I went up to the sceond TL header box and the clicked the "X - Close".

                 

                I ended up with new project with all three projects. I changed the name to Master #2.

                 

                After that I Rendered. I am still waiting on it to render for an 1 1/2 hours. Then I can see exactly where I am. But at least I get this far.

                 

                Thanks JIM
