Automatic Concatenation of clips accross multiple sequences

Hi,

I have 3 different sequences.

Each sequence has the same number of clips or edits (but different durations per edit)
Is there any way using built-in Premiere Pro features, or some extenstion or script to achieve the following concatenation of clips in a final sequence:

Sequence 1 clip 1, Sequence 2 clip 1, Sequence 3 clip 1,

Sequence 1 clip 2, Sequence 2 clip 2, Sequence 3 clip 2,

Sequence 1 clip 3, Sequence 2 clip 3, Sequence 3 clip 3, etc.

 

The result should be a single concatenated sequence with the order described. I would like to keep the original sequences unchanged and  just copy the contents in the right order automatically.

 

Is this possible?
Thank you.

That's not possible with PPro's APIs. 

Those trackItems you'd like to transplant have no meaning outside their original sequence. The only approach would be to instantiate new trackItems in the destination sequence, painstakingly (programmatically) constructed by copying the details of the original...but even this would fall apart quickly, as there's no API for adding effects.

Thanks Bruce,
I'm just hoping to see if there is some trick or workaround to achieve this because it would save me tons of time.
I have 40 projects like that with an average of 150 clips on each sequence that follow the logic described.
I see there are all kinds of scripts and autohotkey magic going around so maybe threre is some semiautomatic way to do it.

I don't think we provide sufficient 'plumbing' for 3rd parties to perform that magic. 🙂

For your specific case; are there effects on those trackItems?

In my case, there are no effects on the clips. It's educational content for a course. Here's how it looks:

 

Seq 1: single video track with no effects.

 

Seq 2: track 1 with talking heads, track 2 with slides, track 3 with related images.

 

Seq 3: Track 1 with video examples, track 2 with titles
