Welcome to the forum.
Your method is certainly one way to do it, and in particular situations, I will employee that, but with good reason.
Now, when you have your Timeline edited, you can set the WAB (Work Area Bar) over just the Clip(s), that you wish to Export/Share. Most Export/Share options will restrict the output to JUST that WAB, though there are a few options, where the WAB cannot be honored - but very frew.
The WAB can also be used to restrict Rendering of portions of the Timeline, should one need to Render to see the smoothest possible playback.
Here is a look at the WAB from PrE 4.0. It works the same way in later versions, though the Timeline display might be a little different:
Hope that this helps you,
Thanks, Bill! Actually version 9 looks a little clearer than that, as it has two bold clear white paddles to mark the edge of the work area.
I was a little frustrated at first, because whatever I did, it still took a year and exported the entire video.
I caught sight of this teeny tiny box waiting for a tick from me, which said:
Share Work area Bar Only
We have lift-off
Thanks again. So much quicker than all that deleting ahnd hoping you don't accidentally say "yes" when prompted to save changes!
Glad that it worked for you.
I have not had the opportunity to study the PrE 9 GUI, but glad that it got a bit cleaner. I find too many things that one needs to hunt carefully for in PrE 4.0. Kudos to Adobe.
When I feel that I will need to do additional editing, but just for segments of a single Project, I do the Delete/Save_As. For just Export/Share, the WAB is my choice.
