Can this be done?

If yes, how?

Thanks

Hello geocmd1949,

Yes, should work.

Select on or more clips in a bin or filter, right-click and select 'Move To'. A panel opens. From the list under 'Projects' on this panel, select the destination. Of course, this operation is limited to compatible frame rates, i.e. you can't move or add 25 fps material to 30 fps projects.

Be aware one can chose between Move to and Add to (previously Copy to).

They each do what it sounds like.

Exactly.

If you've already used the clip in the source project in Sequences, Subclips, etc., "Move to" will make these objects or segments offline because "Move to" removes the Clip from the source project.

If you do not want that, use "Add to".

"Move to" can be useful, for example, to clean up a project of unused Clips without having to delete them.

Personally, instead of using 'Add to', I'd suggest importing the clip in the target project, since 'Add to' creates shared media and that can be quite troublesome. As soon as you delete an added clip, it affects all projects using the clip. However, V14.5 has some improvements referring to deleted clips.

Right.
However, "Add to" has the advantage that in the clip itself created Cue and other settings are preserved.

Thanks. The Add to/Move to difference was a turd onto which I surely would have stepped.

If you want to sort more later:

I often have unused or incompletely used Subclips, Sequences, Bins or Bin Groups that I want to use in other projects. "Add to" and "Move to" are a great help here.

For example, when I add a sequence to another compatible project, Lightworks automatically adds the Clip Tile, Subclip Tile, etc. included in the Sequence
(including the Cue and color corrections I had already inserted directly into the subclip timelines).
In the new project, I can quickly use these prepared Subclips in new sequences as needed.

I can also pre-sort complex projects into suitable bin groups, and move or add these groups to other or new projects.

Backups are always a good idea, in this case even more so.
