Prevent duplicates from importing premiere pro

Sometimes I work on 2 projects similtaneously and they share some of the same footage. I sometimes copy a sequence from one project and paste it to the other project. Then it brings the source, even though it is already there. It gets so messy that way. Is there a way to ask PP to not import duplicates?

Thanks

Yes, it's in the Preferences:

Go the top menu, Premiere Pro>Preferences>Media.

Deselect the option “Allow duplicate media during project import” and click “Ok”

@John V Knowles So I have that option deselected and even though I am working on a new project, it is still bringing a clip that is already in my project. I have all of my b-roll already imported in PP. But it is easier for me to scroll through the b-roll in finder than in PP. So I drag the clip into my timeline. But it also creates a duplicate in my Project, which is creating a whole mess. ANy other solution?

Do you mean you're dragging in the b-roll selection from the Finder?

You already have the clip in a bin in the current project, but you go to Finder to grab it to use it again?

This unfortunately is the issue. You're dragging in a second instance of the clip so Premiere tries to accomodate you by allowing the duplicate. To avoid this you need to eitehr work entirely in Premiere or else wait to Import until you've viewed the clip in the Finder first.

I switched to Productions a couple years back, and it's so much better. All my b-roll, sound libraries, graphic assets & such are available to any project for any client I work with. It sets up differently, but wow ... I'd never work in the ancient stand-alone project mode except to test thigns now.

I think you need to switch to Productions mode. Makes a simpler working process.

Thanks for bringing this feature to my awareness. I didn't know it which sounds crazy considering that I have been working with PP daily for the past 3 years.
Do all of the assests you put in production have to live on a hard drive (internal or external) or does it live on a cloud?

Either or both. It's about the organization of your work into separate folder and project structures within the Production.

 

Whether the assets are local, network, or cloud is your choice.

Be aware that you can use the command from the Edit menu: "Edit > Consolidate Duplicates" to remove multiple instances or duplicates of the same file from the project panel.
