Copy Timeline clips to Event in different Library?
I completed a project that contained several text clips in the Intro, another several text clips in the Credits, and some custom Lower Thirds. Now I find myself with a new effort in which I could re-use these clips with newly-recorded content between Intro and Credits, and I expect to have several more in coming months. I’d like to put these Intro, Credits, and L3rds into a new “FOR REUSE” Library, from which I can copy them into any new Library in the future and change the text for the new work.
However, since I placed these title clips into my original Project from the Title Browser, they were never in an Event in the original library. I cannot find a way to copy them from the Timeline to my new FOR REUSE library. How can I accomplish that…or is there a better way to preserve reusable clips in a Library from which they can be copied into any new Library for re-use?
Please Note: I can’t (re-) create these in Motion, which I realize would make them available throughout my FCPX work. For purposes of this discussion, assume that I use any of several iMac computers at our local Public Access Media Center, which does not allow user-generated templates to be added into its Motion Templates folders. Thus, I need a “portable” solution that I can carry with me on an external hard drive or USB stick.
