Hi guys , I am swtiching from fcp 7.03 to premier pro 6.02 is the any way to use the " Overwrite Sequence Content" command as there is in FCP or mimic the way Avid handles seq-to-seq editing. so i can edit the original clip of a seq in an other sequence preserveing the original clips and not a nested sequence ?
Thanks Ann ,
but Ctrl+Shift+F only Reveals where the nested sequence came from , it does no edit in the original clips of a sequence to an other secuence .... wheh you edit a secuence in to other secuennce you get a nested clip. I need to edit in the original clips of that secuence , just like avid does it or ... the over write with secuence content in FCP works.
I am also desperate for this functionality. I like to make select sequences, then use them as a source for the actual edit. I do this all the time in FCP and Avid. I believe it does not exist in Premiere. I've been opening 2 timelines and cutting and pasting. Slow. Stupid. Annoying.
Let me know if the feature gets added when I'm not looking.
Imagine that you've created a 5 minute video that you'd like to cut down to 60 seconds. On other NLEs, you could put the 5 minute video in your source monitor, mark in and out points for the part you want and make an overwrite or insert edit. When you do this, you'd find the 10 shots you chose in the new timeline, instead of one big clip with your 5 minute sequence name. The Premiere way, you cannot know where each shot starts and ends, you cannot match frame, you cannot make an EDL.
Premiere forces you to open the 5 minute sequence, select the clips you want, copy them, open your one minute sequence, and paste or paste insert. Most of that process requires time consuming mousing all over the screen. All this would take a few quick keystrokes in FCP or Avid. I'll bet I could make rough version of such a cut down at least 5 times as fast on the other NLEs.

Not quite. You can open a sequence in the Source Monitor, set your In/Out points, then add that segment to the new sequence right from there, just as you would any other clip.
I don't know if you've solved this issue but there is now a toggle button that changes the edit action between cutting in a nested sequence, or cutting in the clips from said sequence. It's called something ridiculously long but descriptive like: Insert and Overwrite Sequences as Nests Or Individual Clips.
It's exactly what we've all been looking for. And, I must say, it actually outperforms FCP and Avid in that it's a simple toggle. You don't have two separate commands for insert nested sequence, and insert individual clips. You just have insert, and you can turn that funcitonality on and off.
I don't know why nobody else seemed to get what you were asking for, or the workflow you were describing.
Fair enough. I assumed that Premiere users had migrated from FCP or Avid at some point, and were familiar with cutting from select sequences. It saves the time of having to load tons of clips to find which is the best for a particular moment, just load the sequence, and watch 'em all, or jump to the best one.

I did myself, but over a decade ago when an Avid machine cost $80,000 and was Mac based. $1,200 for a Matrox breakout with Premiere 6.5 included that could be installed on my current Windows machine was a much better deal for a small business, and I never looked back.
