Working with Nests

Nests are sequences referenced by a single clip contained in another sequence. To create a nest in your current sequence, you highlight a selection of clips (possibly all of them) and press Opt+C or select Sequence, Nest Item(s). When you invoke the Nest Item(s) command, a dialog box opens for you to name this nested sequence. This nested sequence appears as a new sequence in the Browser window, creating a nest in your current sequence.

Nests can be used for a variety of purposes. A common use is to lower the numbers of video and/or audio tracks contained in a sequence for easier navigation. Another use of nesting sequences is to add audio and video filters or transitional effects to the entire set of clips contained in them. You can also use nests to repeat a sequence of shots within the same sequence. If you change the nested sequence, all instances of that nest change simultaneously. Rendering the nested sequence forwards this render into all instances of the nest.
