how do you delete unused clips while archiving in updated fcpx

Before the last fcpx update I could duplicate a project and choose an option to only copy used clips instead of the entire referenced event. Now that the updated version has combined events and projects into one it seems I can no longer do this. Is there a way?

Yes.

Select the Project in your Event. Choose File > Copy Project to Library > New Library.

Name a new library and chose to transfer the proxy and optimized media (or not).

This will create a new Library with a new Event, your Project, and only the used media.

You then want to Consolidate the Library to make sure all of the media is inside the Library for archiving.

Or if you have the media backed up separately, then you can skip the Consolidate step.

Hi Jeremy

So can we assume there is no way to do this with 'handles' on the clips?

[Clay Stanton] "we assume there is no way to do this with 'handles' on the clips?"

That's correct, there's no trim function as of now.
