    I put some thinking on the case and I end up with the following procedure which I believe is the fastest way:

    Search inside the bin (Ctrl+F) using the following criteria
    1) Clip type->still
    2) Timeline reference -> used
    Edius will gather all used images inside a new search folder
    Then make a clone of your project and create a new sequense
    drag all the images from the search folder inside that sequense and delete all the other sequences
    Consolidate your project in a new folder and you are done...

    please, excuse my miserable english......

    eventually simple way, eventually faster, and imho more control chances

    create in windows the file i.e ...."_folder1 for **** imaginate" on hold it open
    create in the bin a new folder i.e. ..... "**** first 20 for imaginate" and open [activate] it

    a) on your timeline mark the different 20 pic and move it in one step per mouse to the new open bin-folder
    b) sent the different 20 pic from your timeline per shotcut "Add to Bin" to the new open bin-folder

    in the new open bin-folder right-mouse click[kontex] on a clip, and keybord "x"
    will open the correct windows-folder from the media-file and mark the media-file

    move [or duplicate] the marked file from one to the other open window folder with the mouse

    exampel (look at the name from the folders):

    OK. I was just hoping I could highlight or move the 20 - 30 clips and get them to a folder as opposed to deleting the other thousand, but maybe I am just getting greedy.

    I assume that I should do this, consolidate the program, and then go back and undo the delete and repeat the procedure for each group of clips that I want to use?

    Pat,

    It's easy. Once the files are removed form the timeline you don't have to search them in the bin.

    It is just a command.
    Sequence the pictures to a new and just delete all the file form the other sequences.

    It's very easy.

    You can do what SRsupport suggested and then use windows search inside your new folder to find images only....

    This will not be time consuming

    That will be a little time consuming considering there are well over a thousand clips and I want to grab them for Imaginate in groups of 20 or 30. Any other way?

    I think we are on the right track. I love learning something new.

    It seems that when I do this that it is wanting to copy the files for the entire project, not just the clips I have selected and put in the new sequence.

    This project has probably a thousand clips of video, graphics, and photos. I want to do several different Imaginate series, so it is important to be able to put different photos in different folders.

    Go to file and then choose consolidate project, choose a new folder and check the option copy used files to project folder...
    This is a very nice feature and the most important is that it will not modify the resolution of your images...It will just make a copy of the original files...

    That sound very promising. How do I consolidate to a folder

    unfortunately, Ctrl+T is not a good solution if your plan is to use them in imaginate

    because if you use Ctrl+T you will end up with low res 720px wide image that can't be zoomed and moved in Imaginate

    the bigger the better when it comes to imaginate, I use the full 10 megapixel images from my Canon D400

    Making a New Folder

    I have a series of photos on a timeline that have come from various folders and locations. Now I would like to somehow group them all together in a windows folder so that I can import them all into Imaginate. This would keep me from having to manually locate each photo. The best solution so far is to do a CTRL T on each one to the same folder. While that is a better solution, it is still very time consuming. Does anyone have a better suggestion?
Working...
