Methods for Editing Clips from One Sequence to Another

Often when you’re editing, you’ll be working with more than one sequence. For example, you may create one sequence for each scene in a movie, or use different sequences for various versions of your project. At some point, you may need to copy clips from one sequence to another. Copying information between sequences is fairly easy and can be done several ways. You can also edit entire sequences into other sequences, commonly called nesting.

There are a few different ways to add content from one sequence to another:

Important: Editing clips between sequences with different dimensions, frame rates, and codecs will apply motion parameters, such as distortion and aspect ratio adjustments, to the resulting clips in the destination sequence. To remove these parameters, see Reusing Effect and Motion Parameters.
