Selecting clips in a bin and using Automate-to-Timeline

Another way to add clips to the Timeline window is to select them in the Bin area of the Project window in a specified sequence and then use the Automate-to-Timeline command to move them all at once to the Timeline.

1.
Click the Bin 1 icon in the Project window to view the contents of Bin 1.

2.
Press and hold the Control key (Windows) or the Command key (Mac OS) and click the icon for the following clips in this order: Logo.mov, Trot.mov, and Field.mov. (remember to position the hand tool over the icon for the clip, not the name of the clip.) All three clips are now highlighted (selected) in the bin.

Now, let's use the Automate-to-Timeline command to add the clips to the Timeline.

3.
From the title bar at the top of your screen, choose Project > Automate-to-Timeline to see the Automate-to-Timeline dialog box.

4.
Make these changes in the dialog box: In the Contents field, choose Selected clips from the menu; in the Ordering field, choose Selection Order from the menu. In the Insert At field, choose End, for Clip Overlap, type 0, deselect Use Default Transitions if it is selected. Now, click OK.

5.
Now, look at the Timeline window. You will see that the three clips you just added are at the end of the Timeline, after the clips you brought in from the Storyboard.

6.
Now, delete the three clips you just added by clicking on each clip (a dotted box appears around the selected clip) and pressing the delete key. You should still have the clips from the Storyboard in the Timeline.
