Basic Sequence and Timeline Settings

Before you began logging and capturing, you most likely chose an Easy Setup that
established your basic sequence settings and Timeline display options. An Easy Setup is
a preset group of capture, device control, sequence, external playback, and output
settings for a particular video or audio format and hardware configuration. Each Easy
Setup represents a simple workflow that maintains that same video format throughout
capturing, editing, and output. If one of the available Easy Setups describes your
workflow, you should have no need to adjust your sequence and Timeline settings. For
more information, see Volume IV, Chapter 24, “Audio/Video Settings and Easy Setups.”

You can easily conform your sequence settings to the settings of the first clip you edit
into your sequence. For more information, see Volume III, Chapter 30, “Working with
Mixed-Format Sequences.”
