I'm working on a project that has 25 video tracks of things all stacked on top of each other. I've got everything the way I want it and I want to know if there is a shortcut to moving all the tracks down and combining them so there is only one video track of all the things that were on the top, the highest level, the ones that were displayed in the preview. Without having to manually drag each and every one downward and overlap them.
I would post a link about nesting sequences,
but you obviously don't read the links I provide for you.
Frankly, there is no reason for you to have 25 video tracks
aside from a basic misunderstanding of editing in Premiere.
Thank you again for all of your help and assistance. I know a lot of my questions are pretty basic. You'll be happy to know that I have an adobe premiere book on hold at the library and I also intend to watch some of the video's and tutorials you've linked over the last few days.
I've been too excited working on this video project to stop and work on the educational material but now that the video is pretty much done I plan to work on learning the software before starting the next project.
Here is a link to the final cut of the video. I've got just a few tiny things to change. Like for some reason it inserted an extra frame when I did the nesting of the sequence which was odd because when i watch the pre-nested clip on the timeline you cannot see this extra frame but once I nest, it pops in there. Anyway. Watch the video and enjoy! I'm rather proud of it.

Well, I'll say this...
For a first editing project, and having no idea
what you're doing, your video is pretty entertaining.
And, I was glad to see Alex & his Droogs made the cut.
Just imagine what you can do with a little bit of learning.
Good luck, and read.
Thank you, it's been a blast to make
However, I have run into another little problem. For some reason now when I nest the sequence it's still showing footage in the background when clips aspect ratio's don't match. Basically it's still showing what was behind the clip even though it's now nested and theres only one video track. This didn't happen yesterday. Today I wanted to make a few small changes and now it's happening. Any idea what's going on?
This is the result of stacking 25 video tracks.
Go into your Nested Sequence at the point
where you can see video 'bleeding in' at the edges.
Scroll down through all of your tracks and eliminate the
offending track(s) that are intruding into your top track.
You can use the Ctrl+K shortcut you learned
to snip out the bits you don't need.
In the real world, your edit should only use 2-3 tracks at most,
and most folks would probably do it in one!
You will look back at this and chuckle once you are more familiar w/Pr.
I was afraid you might say that. Yes my timeline looks like sheet music for a symphony. Small little clips all over the place! Alright, thanks again for the insight. Ill remember this for the future.
Alright Joe, one last uneducated question, for old times sake
I'm done with the project but i'd like to be able to come back to it in the future in case I want to do any future edits. Is it safe for me to delete all of the temporary files associated with the project? Since the project involves so many complete movies, the temporary audio files are taking up over 100 gig of space on my C drive.
