Making short clips from longer videos

New to Premiere.  I have many 8-10 minute videos (~500 GoPro's at 1440p and 4k). Within each video I want to use several 2-10 second segments.  I will then give these shorter clips to someone else to create YouTube videos say 5-10 mintues long.  There are several questions I have:  

(1) First, what is the best way to do this?

(2) Should I put all 500 videos into one file (~2 TB). 

(3) Or should I work with each 8-10 min video in it's own file?

(4) Should I export each shorter clip (2-10 s) as it's own file?

(5) What file format should I save the shorter clips as?

Generally, one would give your editor the entire videos and then give them timecode selects, then they can trim the clips and edit at the same time. But if you wanted you could trim the clips then give them to your editor, just depends on which workflow works best for you and your editor. Neither way is wrong or right.

I understand completely.  I was just trying to save some money since the hours spent going through the 500 videos would be quite a bit.  Just hoping to figure out how to make the shorter clips though.  Thanks.

think of it as solving problem for one video instead of hundreds. Once you solve for one video you'll have solution and then just repeat it as many times as you have to.

I would put your in out points in the source monitor and drag the stuff down to timeline as selections of your source. Then export as intermediate or mp4. Your stuff won't matter cause it's going to youtube, so just stay simple at mp4. It's lossy but who cares.

Send that to your freind.

If it works do your 500 videos like that.

p.s. name export '1of500' for example. then your friend knows what video he's looking at cause you'll tell him what it is.

Next video you do you can name 2of500, and so on... that way everyone knows what the heck is going on.

Here's whagt I used to to do:

1- scrub through each file footage in the preview monitor: set in/out points and drop on the timeline using a kleyboard shortcut

2- Nest each seperate shot, and rename the nested sequence to what I want it to be

3- Select all Nested sequences and Batch export
