It's nothing you don't already know, I was just surprised at easily it reared its ugly head.

My Premiere project management workflow is straightforward. Instead of opening separate tabbed projects like in FCP7, I create a master project and import any source projects I may need. I set up the imported project bins as tabs in a Pr window. It works well enough and in some ways is even an improvement over FCP7's tabs (the Pr tilde key is pure win). So far so good.

So here 's what happened - I was copying clips from a source sequence into my new project sequence. Out of habit, I often cut clips from the source so I only have unused clips remaining. As I'm working I decided I want a clip that I deleted a while ago. In FCP7, I could go back and revert the source project. In PrP, I have to reimport the entire thing. And now I can't delete the reimported project once I get my clip back because the clip is linked to the newly reimported project.

There are many ways I could have avoided this scenario, but when working fast, it's really easy for things like this to happen. Like everyone says, PrP project management has a major case of the stupids. Hope it gets better in a couple weeks.
