Tip 5: How to Import Sequences from Other Premiere Pro Projects

Some editorial systems let you have two projects open at once; others don't. Premiere Pro doesn't. But if you need assets or sequences from another Premiere Pro project, it's as simple as importing, which makes a copy of only what you need—either selected sequences or the entire project (see Figure 9).

You Can Import Nearly Everything

Ever had to transcode footage to edit, perhaps from a DSLR? Or have to wait while your footage is imported or rewrapped? Would it be nice to just edit?

Welcome to the brave new world. Adobe Premiere Pro can import nearly anything: all the card formats (such as P2 or XDCAM), and footage that's greater than HD sizes (such as RED and ARRIRAW)—even DVD video object files (VOBs) and Flash FLV files. The best trick is just to point Adobe Premiere Pro at the footage and see whether it works.
