I have a sequence with clips from an interview. One layer of video and 2 audio. I've marked the best bits and added comments to the markers and now I want to export these sections as subclips. I ctrl click the sequence in the project panel and "Open in Source Monitor". In the source monitor I mark an In/Out. Either by using the menu - Clip/Make Subclip - or by using the shortcut cmd U, nothing happens, the option is greyed out in the menu.
Things I've tried: I can make a subsequence, but not a subclip. Track targeting is on. The selections are linked on the sequence. I can make a subclip from a master clip. Making a new project with only one clip and one sequence still does not work.
I've watched a great tutorial on Lynda.com where the trainer does this so I know it's possible! Any ideas?

did you manage to solve the issue?
Have the same here.
Subclips are made by double-clicking a clip in a bin to bring it up on the Source monitor, not from a timeline/sequence.
I am fully aware of that.
And that is exactly, where the option "Make Subclip" is greyed out.
Unless I manually unlink all clips to offline and re-link them anew.
Then it strangely enough works.
I have been making subclips from my sequences ever since using Premiere. My option is no greyed out too.
You have to make what is called a subsequence. Shift+U
Sorting out terminology and where X is X and where it becomes Y instead is a kick. Subclips are typically made from a clip loaded into the Source monitor. And subsequences from media on a timeline.
Which seem similar in most ways, though a subclip can only have media from one clip, while a subsequence can of course include media from several original clips.
I'd try closing the project and Premiere. Open Premiere WITHOUT opening a project, go too Preferences and delete everything in the cache/cache database files. Relaunch Premiere and see if it's working right.
You cannot make a subclip from a sequence only as the feature says: clip.
I am fully aware of and that was not my question.
Hey man you probably already figured this out but I just read this and saw all these random no advice people. I had the greyed out make subclip button. The problem is that I was working off proxies. I just reconnected my hardrive which has all the full sized files, original media, and the make sublicp buotton popped right back on. Make sure premiere can access the original media. Hope it helps!
Signed in to say thanks! This was the problem I was having and your solution fixed it.
Thank you! Glad someone had the right answer here. Insane that this functionality is lacking while using proxies imo
