Can I import a video and then set more than one in and out points for that video so I can drop different parts of the one video onto the time line?
yes, copy the imported video and cut in/out points as requested
Actually figured it out - You can set multiple points but you have drag the resulting smaller clip into the timeline first before you set the 2nd or more points.
