Merging projects/adding a clip

Post by PCAnders » 27 Mar 2021, 02:06

This is probably really basic: can you merge storyboards, or add a Clip file worked on in a separate project into a storyboard? As far as I can see this is not possible, but it seems like it should be

Do you mean merge two Clips in the animatic ? Use this button for Merge Clips . It will merge your selected clip with the following clip.

Yes, you can add a Clip that was made in a separate project.

In your separate project , select the Clip and copy it.

Then go to your other project and select the point where you want to paste the clip. Then right-click to bring up the menu and choose Paste After to paste it in after the current clip.
