Using and Combining Sequences

Once you've created a new Sequence, you can switch between it and any other Sequences you have made very simply. Remember: NLE is nondestructive, so you can use your media clips in as many different Sequences as you like.

Once the project is finished, you can quickly and easily combine all these separate Sequences into the final assembly Sequence using just the power of drag and drop.

To switch between Sequences

Do one of the following:

  • Left-click the drop-down Sequence menu in the top-right corner of the interface and select the Sequence you want (Figure 14.3).

    Figure 14.3. The drop-down list reveals all the Sequences stored in the current project.

  • Open the Sequence Rack by left-clicking it, then double-click the name of the Sequence you want (Figure 14.4).

    Figure 14.4. You can also find them stored in the Sequences Rack in the Project Browser.


  • You can also copy and paste Sequences inside the Project Browser to create a backup of a particular Sequence. The copy always retains the original state and isn't affected by any alterations you make to the original Sequence.

To combine Sequences onto one Timeline


Create a new Sequence by clicking once on the New Sequence button in the top-right corner of the interface.


When the New Sequence dialog appears, enter a unique Sequence name in the top box and select the setting appropriate to the media clips you are using.


Drag the Sequence you want from the Sequence Rack to an empty Timeline.

The Sequence appears on the Timeline as the Sequence name without display-ing the various cuts the original had, although these are included inside the actual Sequence clip (Figure 14.5). Note: Markers will still be displayed.

Figure 14.5. Dragging a Sequence to the Timeline is the same as dragging a clip.


Repeat step 3 until all the Sequences you want are assembled in the Timeline.


  • Scrub through each sequence to make sure you have the right one. Sequences can't be viewed in the Source Viewer.

  • Switch back to the original Sequence to make last-minute changes.
