    so im kinda new to FCE and i captured a whole DV tape full of footage. So i have a clip of 45 some minutes full of footage that i am playing in the viewer. I use the "I" and "O" buttons to create a clip. I then drag it into the time line and its the "cut" clip that i wanted. But now i want to export this to put into a new folder and title it. but when i drag it back into the "bin" area it is the full length clip.

    How do i make it so that when i put the clip i cut into the "bin" its the new length of the actual clip?

    Thanks

    Moving clips between bins will always preserve the original captured video. So, here's what you want to do:

    Create a new sequence with matching settings and copy/paste the cut section to it. Then, export the new sequence as a Quicktime movie using the same settings. From here, you can import the newly exported clip to the bin of your choosing. Done.
