Nesting Sequences

Final Cut Pro allows you to treat sequences as clips. You can open sequences in the
Viewer and set In and Out points, and you can even edit sequences into other
sequences. Putting one sequence inside another is called nesting a sequence. The
sequence inside another sequence is the nested sequence. The sequence that contains
the nested sequence is sometimes called the parent sequence.

Nested sequences can be used in the same way as clips. You can add audio and video
filters to them, set their opacity and level overlays in the Timeline, work with their audio
in the Audio tab of the Viewer, and adjust their motion parameters in the Motion tab of
the Viewer.

Note: A sequence can’t be edited into itself.
