Utilizing The Nest Items Command In Final Cut Pro

Earlier, we talked about how you could build each scene of your film as a separate project and later combine them in a master sequence as a form of nesting. The Nest Items Command in Final Cut Pro allows you to select a range in your timeline that contains many layered effects and collapse them into a nested sequence. This can make a very busy timeline easier on the eyes as you continue to work.


Creating a Nested Sequence From a Selected Range in the Timeline

1 Select a range of clips in your timeline.

3 Enter a descriptive name for the nested sequence in the Nest Items dialog box.

4 Designate the width and height of the nested sequence.

5 If the range of clips you have selected contain effects, markers, etc., make sure that you check the Keep Effects, Markers, and Audio Levels with clip selection.

6 Select the Mixdown Audio option if you want your audio to be rendered in the nest.

7 Click on the OK tab. Your previously selected range of clips have now been replaced with a nested sequence. Go to Edit > Undo to step back out of the nest if needed.
