Sure, you just have to make sure that the source sequences have enough heads and tails(pre and post roll) to perform the edits. And if they don't, you can always open them and adjust them. Also you will need to render a nested clip's audio to see a waveform, which is helpful when making split edits.
Thanks Stephen, but I must be doing something wrong, I cant get the L & J cuts to work, if I have longer video on sequence 1 and the audio starting earlier than video in sequence 2, and then put those 2 sequences together in the new master sequence, then of course, I just get gaps as it plays, how do I get the L and J cust to cross the sequences?
I'm sure its simple, but my brain just cant figure it!
ok - so i unlinked audio from video in the master sequence, of each individual sequence and then dragged them across, is there an easy way, like a snapping feature, to be sure they meet up correctly first time, or do I just have to try and try again
Maybe we're not communicating the issues too well. A nested sequence should function just like a video clip, therefore you can L a J edit in the manner as one does with video clips. You don't need to unlink the audio and video, just hold the alt key down and you can trimmed either independently using the selection tool. It might be easier if you alternate from A&V tracks 1 and 2, simplifying the timing adjustments.
