I am totally new to video editing and learning through the tutorials. After doing several of them I thought I would create a project. My screen doesn't looke anything like the tutorials. I dont' have a timeline, I don't have a preview window...etc. Have I changed a preference by mistake? I've spent a lot of time looking through preferences and I have tried Adobe Help with no success. Also I don't really understand what a sequence is. Anyone give me any advice?
Might want to start here:
To set your screen back to normal go to Window / Workspace / Reset Current Workspace.
