Example: Duplicating a Sequence and Its Corresponding
Media Files

In this example, a sequence is copied to a new project, along with its corresponding
media files. The new sequence clips refer to the new media files, while the original
sequence still refers to the original media files.

For example, you may have captured an hour’s worth of media from tape, but used
only 45 minutes of it in the sequence. You can duplicate the sequence and create
copies of the media files referenced by the sequence, but without the unused
15 minutes of footage.


In the Browser, select the sequence you want to duplicate.


In the Media Manager, choose the following options, then click OK.

Choose “Copy” from

this pop-up menu.

Select these options to

include only media used

in the sequence.

Make sure this

option is selected.

Handles are optional.
