I'm struggling with the vocabulary on this so bear with me.
I am making a short film that uses lots of small snatches from a wide array of source footage.
This is likely to have about 20 x 5 second snatches from about 20 separate hour long television episodes (approx 1-4gb per episode).
I realise the whole point of non-destructive editing but I only have limited space on my drive and can't afford to keep 20x full episodes on the drive just to use 2-3 mins of footage across all of them.
What are my options here?
Is there any way to keep the footage between the in and out points and discard the rest?
Like you can embed a layer in Photoshop, and don't have to keep the original to link to.
This is probably pretty basic stuff, but then ...so am I ;)
When you say export, do you mean:
-Import original to separate project
-Import it into new project
-Delete original file
There's no way to just:
Take what I need
Discard files and keep desired footage.
