Default Best way to cut a 5 min multitrack song from an hour show

I have a 24 trk hour long concert. A remixer would like mulitracks of one song.
I am going save as a new session, delete all before it with shuffle, then delete all after it. Consolidate the remaining files to create smaller song specific files, then save session copy to a new folder with only the new files in the session.

Is this the best way? See any problems? My original full concert session will stay intact (I hope)? as I need the full uninterruped time line for laying to video.

Thanks
BB

Yes, that's the best way I know of -- as long as you "clear unused" after you consolidate and before you save session copy you'll be fine. Of course, don't delete from disk...!

If you plan to archive the originals and you don't want to have these newly consolidated files dead-ended in the audio files folder, then copy the whole session folder first, do what's been previously described, save session copy and then delete the copy of the whole session folder that you worked from.

Why not just make regions of the song he wants, then do Export Regions as Files? It'll take 2 minutes.
