How to Copy and Paste Clips in Premiere Pro

The video below will show you two ways to copy and paste clips in your timeline in Premiere Pro. There’s a quick recap beneath the video!

Recapping the Tutorial

To sum up the video… First select the desired clip(s). Next hit Cmd+C (Mac) or Ctrl+C (PC) to copy the clip(s). Move time position indicator in the timeline to where you want to paste the clips. After that use the keyboard shortcut Cmd+V (Mac) or Ctrl+V (PC).

There’s also an alternate way to do this. First select clips. Then hold down the Opt key (Mac) or Alt key (PC) and click on clips again and drag to them to where you want them to go. If this is a Legacy Title it’ll make a clone of that Title so it won’t change the Title you copied from if you change the new version of it. To be honest I’m still using the Legacy Title Tool in Premiere and I’m not positive how this acts with the new Title Tool.
