In an incredibly short amount of time, I have amassed quite a few slides, i.e. beamer frames, where I step through procedures, architectures, roadmaps and such.

These frames include a lot of \only and \visible blocks and are generally decorated with <...> all over. I am now looking for a way to reuse these frames, but not entirely, just a few select views. With this I would like to be able to step through the frame more quickly. For instance, when it takes me 10 clicks to step through a procedure during a workshop, I would like to move through the same procedure in just four steps during the final presentation. I always have these things as just one frame, that adds or removes bits and pieces to itself.

Currently I copy/paste the frame and then adjust all the <...> parameters to fit my needs. This is tedious work and not rewarding at all. What I would like to do is copy/paste the frame and then tell (Lua)LaTeX: "just give me the views 1, 4, 8 and 10". Or maybe simply: "give me view 5".

Does this exist in ready-to-use already?

You can use \againframe to select which ever overlays you want to repeat later on.
