Im new to P.P as well as editing, so I suppose my question is basic.

Do I  have to leave edited clips on the tieline,it gets a bit crowded.

If I SAVE it after editing can they be moved back to project panel.?

 

Thank you!!!

The way PPro works is what you see on the timeline is a "representation" of of your original file, with any edits effects you have added... your original file is NOT changed

 

When you save, you are saving your project file which is where all of your commands are stored

 

When you export you create a new video file WITH your changes

 

If you remove the video files from the timeline what you have done will not be shown when you create a new, edited file

In a video editing application you create sequences of bits of clips and other media in the timeline panel. And you can create as many as you wish within the same Project.

 

So make a sequence with things looking one way. You can make another sequence with the same clips and or other things added that looks different. To your heart's content.

 

And NLE's are non-destructive editing yes, like Lightroom in that respect. Your changes to a clip on a sequence are stored as metadata with that sequence. When you decide to export, to create a new finished 'movie' of your work, it creates a totally new video file.

Yes, and the way you can confirm this is by looking at the file size of your Premiere Pro projects. You can create a project containing 37 clips and the originals of those clips can add up to many gigabytes, but when you look at the Premiere Pro project file size, it’s only 10 or 20 megabytes…almost nothing. Because the project file is just file paths to where the actual clips are stored, and the rest are just instructions for how you’re using the clips with sequences, edits, and effects.

 

Keeping the originals outside, and referencing them by file paths, is a common space-saving technique used in professional applications for over 30 years in print layout software, almost as long in video editing software like Premiere Pro, and then Lightroom started doing it with photos in 2007. And it is also how web pages work.

If a sequence timeline gets messy, you can create multiple sequences and nest them. For example, if you edit a show with ten segments, instead of putting every clip in one sequence, make each segment its own sequence and then put those ten into one sequence that represents the whole show. That is a big reason why one project can contain multiple sequences: Nesting sequences is a great way to organize complicated timelines into sub-sequences that are easier to handle.
