Opening More Than One Sequence at a Time

To copy, edit, or nest a sequence into another sequence, the destination sequence must be open in the Timeline or Canvas. When you open a sequence, the Timeline and the Canvas open together, if they’re not open already. If the Timeline and Canvas are already open, a newly opened sequence appears in its own tab on top of any other sequence tabs.

If you want to view your sequences separately, you can move each into its own window. This eliminates the constant need to click back and forth between sequence tabs in the Timeline. For more information, see Overview of the Final Cut Pro Interface.
