You can edit the contents of a sequence, render it, and then edit that sequence into
another sequence. This section explains the various ways you can nest a sequence into
To nest a sequence that is open in the Viewer:
Open the sequence you want to nest in the Viewer by doing one of the following:
Â Drag the sequence from the Browser to the Viewer.
Â Hold down the Option key, then double-click a sequence in the Browser (this opens
it in its own Viewer window).
Â Control-click the sequence, then choose Open in Viewer from the shortcut menu.
In the Viewer, set In and Out points for the source sequence.
This lets you nest all or just a part of the sequence.
Edit the sequence into another sequence in the Timeline as you would a clip.
To nest a sequence by dragging it into another sequence:

In the Browser, copy the sequence by doing one of the following:
Â Select a sequence in the Browser, then choose Edit > Copy (or press Command-C).
Â Control-click a sequence in the Browser, then choose Copy from the shortcut menu.
In the Canvas or Timeline, open the destination sequence, then move the playhead to

The selected sequence is now nested, or placed, into the second sequence.
