  • Copy a Sequence to another Project ???

    Hello all,

    Try as I might, I cannot copy a sequence (with effects, etc.) from one Project into another. I cannot output to an *avi, and just copy that into the bin of another project, for that will not allow me to adjust the effects (pix in pix, lumakeys and chromakeys, etc.) once the avi is made.

    Try as I might, and tutorials and manuals I have perused - and I don't find a solution. Any one of you who might have a work-around, I would greatly appreciate it. To rebuild the sequences would be nearly an impossible feat.

    Many thanks....in advance...
    Cheers,
    Alan

    Not sure if it is the most graceful way or not but I think there is a way to just import an entire project into a new project and then just delete all the stuff from the original that you didn't need.

    I just poked around in Edius...I think to do it you go to File Import Sequence and actually import the Edius project file of your original project and it will bring in the whole project including your sequences. WHen you get the import option window up make sure to disable the copy clips setting or you will get all your clips copied to the new project as well. Just delete all the original stuff you don't need and you are good to go.

    I just tried it out and it worked great.

    Hope that helps. Wow...I helped 2 people in one night. I'm feelin' smart! :-)

      Philip is right, but what do you mean exactly.....you can't do it in Edius? Or you can't do it in After Effects? Or both? For Edius, just do what Philip suggested, and in AE just import a project....can't believe you didn't try that...

        He may have missed the functionality in Edius because it is called Import Sequence and not project. I would have never thought to try a Sequence import. The only reason I knew that was because someone asked a similar question way back when Sequences became a feature and I happened to remember it was there. Just dug a little and uncovered it.

          I have the same question as AJL.

          On my v4.54 I am unable to import a sequence from another project into the bin of an already open project. The import sequence window opened from the timeline in fact only permits the import of a project. It would be a useful feature for me just to be able to import a sequence, as I will have a need to do this. I have about six projects on the go, with from six to ten sequences in each project. Some of these sequences will end up as discrete DVDs. Others will be combined and I need some way to combine them. The six projects comprise about 350-400GB of DV clips, typically 60GB each with from 100 to 200 clips in each.

          I had assumed the way to combine sequences would be to put markers on each sequence and output to file using PCE and then create a new project from this output combining the sequences as needed. It would be much quicker to be able to do this direct from another project via the import sequence dialogue. Is this likely to be feasible in the future or does the way the Edius software is written preclude this possibility?

            Yeah thats right - Same in AE, you can't import compositions or sequences as such, only full projects. Edius's menu option "import sequence" is miss-leading...true.

              I import the Project but making sure the Copy files box is not ticked
              This brings the Bin contents and the sequences from the project being copied into the present one
              I then delete the sequences and Bin contents I do not want and as no files were copied it has taken up no more disk space and the required sequence is now in the new project and can be manipulated and changed without changng the original

                Thanks everyone. Do appreciate the expert help. And MattMatt - your suggestion of using After Effects is a great one. I have only one small problem in doing this. I don't use or have After Effects!

                See ya'll.....Cheers,
