Cut a short clip....use later.

I am trying to cut a short clip so that I can use it at various times later in the timeline.
I don't to have to tirm all around it and save it as an .avi just so to import into my final time line project.

There has to be an easy way of doing this?

Unless I'm misunderstanding the question another easy way to do this is to set the in and out points then right-click on the preview monitor and select create sub-clip.

my own common habit is to drag trimmed clips i 'may' use at a later stage to a point way after the sequence (i.e. half an hour after your edited timeline) or maybe on to an unwanted and unseen track (e.g. video track 5). that way you'll easily see it and be reminded about it, without it affecting your existing work.

I'm new to Premiere Pro and I love the subclip features. I just set the in and out points in the full video file in the source monitor, choose whether I want audio, video, or audio and video, and drag the video to a new bin, organised by topic (birds, scenery, rabbits, cranes etc.)

PP will ask for a new name when you drag the clip. I can then choose from all the new subclips that have been created and work with them just like full videos, dragging them on to sequences once or more than once. I find that much better than keeping all the clips on a sequence timeline as that just confuses me. Subclips and sequences have revolutionised my editing.

I found this out froma series of tutorials on YouTube:

This guy (Cal) has some great tutorials - at last, something useful on YouTube. They are for Premiere Pro 2, but most of the principles are exactly the same. He explains keyframes, subclips and much more. Well worth a watch if you are a beginner.
