Nesting sequences

You can also insert, or nest, sequences into other sequences. A nested sequence appears as a single, linked video/audio clip—even though its source sequence may contain numerous video and audio tracks. You can select, move, trim, and apply effects to nested sequences as you would to any other clip. Any changes you make to the source sequence will be reflected in any of the nested instances created from the source sequence. Moreover, you can nest sequences within sequences—to any depth—to create complex groupings and hierarchies. The ability to nest sequences enables you to employ a number of time-saving techniques and to create effects that otherwise would be difficult or impossible. Nesting enables you to do the following:

  • Reuse sequences. When you want to repeat a sequence—particularly a complex one—you can create it once, then simply nest it in another sequence as many times as you want.

  • Apply different settings to copies of a sequence. For example, if you want a sequence to play back repeatedly but with a different effect each time, just apply a different effect to each instance of the nested sequence.

  • Streamline your editing space. You can create complex, multilayered sequences separately, and then add them to the main sequence as a single clip. This prevents you from having to maintain numerous tracks in the main sequence, and reduces the chances of inadvertently moving clips during editing and losing sync.

  • Create complex groupings and nested effects. Although you can apply only one transition to an edit point, you can nest sequences and apply a new transition to each nested clip—creating transitions-within-transitions. Or you can create picture-in-picture effects, in which each picture is a nested sequence, containing its own series of clips, transitions, and effects.
