I cant seem to transfer clips from one sequence to another

Customer Question

I can't seem to transfer clips from one sequence to another using Final Cut Pro!


I've tried the traditional select all, copy, then switch to the other timeline and paste the sequence but the media was out of sync.

Hello, and welcome to!

My name is Jesse, and I'm here to help.

Jesse :

Have you tried the following process?

Jesse :

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.

5 Move the playhead to the area that you wish to copy the clip(s) to within the new sequence.

6 Press Command V and you will have shared clips between sequences.

Jesse :

The key is step 4.
