Nesting Nonmatching Sequences

Real-time playback of nested sequences is possible under the following conditions:

Important: Final Cut Pro does not allow you to nest one sequence into another if their frame rates do not match.

For example, a DVCPRO 50 NTSC sequence nested into a DV NTSC sequence plays back in real time because both sequences have the same frame rate, image dimensions, and field dominance.

Note: Imported Adobe Photoshop files with multiple layers become sequences in Final Cut Pro. To avoid mixed-frame-rate sequences when nesting layered Photoshop sequences, you can change the frame rate of the Photoshop sequence. For more information, see Working with Layered Photoshop Files.
