Nesting Sequences in Final Cut Pro

You may find it convenient in the process of planning the workflow for your film to create a new sequence in FCP for each scene and later edit them together in a finished master sequence. This particular workflow could really help you in the render department by allowing you the fexibility of being able to render all of your effects intensive scenes in separate sequences.

1 Drag the icon for your current sequence from the Browser into the Viwer Window.

3 Double-click on the new sequence icon that appears in the Browser to open up the new Timeline Window.

4 You can now set in and out points in your sequence that was previously loaded into the Viewer.

5 Edit the source sequence into the master sequence just as you would a clip with an overwrite or insert edit.

Keep in mind that you could have also drug the sequence icon from the Browser into the timeline or have drug the video from the source sequence, located in the Viewer, into the Timeline.
