Sharing Clips Between Sequences In Final Cut Pro
You have built an awesome 30 second spot within Final Cut Pro that is a definite eye-catcher and will stop anyone in their tracks! The client is overwhelmingly pleased, but requests one more thing of you. They need you to make a more compact version of that same spot that is 15 seconds long. Well, anyone who has been a commercial producer for any length of time can tell you that if at all possible, you don't need to re-invent the wheel. You will be borrowing the proper pre-edited clips from your original 30 second spot to provide the one two punch your client is looking for.

1 Open the original project that you want to copy material from and select the clips you wish to copy from the timeline.
2 Press Command C to copy the clips(s).
3 Open the new sequence and drag it by its tab to a new location so that you are able to view it and the original sequence simultaneously.
4 Ensure that the Auto Select controls are active for the tracks in the new sequence you will be copying to.
