Normally, I would start a new project then import the sequence. I am have serious problems with that in cs5, and realize it would be easier to just save as project - if it existed as an option.
Why cant you "Save As" ?
The option does exist and so you could save the project as a new Project and choose the sequences as you wish.
Can you please clarify the "save as"? I have PrProCS5, yet whenever I've used "save as" it doesn't give me an option as to what sequences I can save, it only allows me to resave the whole project under a different name. It seems you are saying there would be an option that comes up that would allow me to save specific sequences, is that correct? (Possibly you are referring to saving as from the Project Manager....not File>Save As.....correct? That does work fine for me.)
No sorry. It doesnt work that way. ( Didnt mean to mislead you)
It is just a way of saving as a new project ( ie a unique name) and one simply deletes the sequences that one does not require in the new project.
Thanks.....thought so. I just happened to be curious about that as I am at this moment doing exactly that with a large project...breaking it down and saving different projects and deleting what I don't need. Thanks for the clarification!
For just a bit of background on the differences between Save/Save_As/Save_As_a_Copy, this ARTICLE might be useful. They are similar, but one can use their differences to their own purposes.
When wishing to Save with particular Sequences, they would first do a Save, for the entire Project, and then Delete any unneeded Sequences, and/or Assets, and then do a Save_As (if they wished to keep on working with that new Project, the one without the unnecessary Sequences), or Save_As_a_Copy, if they wished to just have that altered Project for later, and wished to keep editing the original, unaltered version.
PS - based on your question, I think that I will append a comment on Sequences/Assets to that article, just so that it's clear.
Slam! That is a perfect answer - thank you!
