    Sequence/asset

      Who can explain the differences between a sequence; asset; scene and clip on the timeline?

          In a very simplified manner:

           

          A Sequence IS the Timeline. An Asset is a Clip - can be a Video Clip (name "Clip" is usually applied here), a Still Image, an Audio Clip, synthetic Video like a Color Matte or Black Video, etc.

           

          In PrPro, one can have many Sequences in a Project. How one uses those Sequences will depend on what they are doing, and how they like to edit. For me, I use and edit Sequences, where each corresponds to a "Scene." However, one can structure that differently, and perhaps will cut one Scene with multiple Sequences, and then perhaps, Nest those Sequences into one.

           

          For general nomenclature for video-editing, this article might be a good place to start: http://forums.adobe.com/thread/498261?tstart=120

           

          Good luck,

            Thank you Bill.

            I was even surprised that I received your reply in my mailbox at home.

            Not used to it

            Thanks again

              This was probably because of how you have Forum E-mail Subscriptions set up.

               

              There are several ways to manage subscriptions:

               

              By Forum (one gets an e-mail for all posts to that forum)

              By Thread (one gets an e-mail for all posts to that thread)

              By Discussion initiated, i.e. My Discussions (one gets an e-mail for all replies to a post that the user created)

               

              Hope that helps, and remember, within those rough definitions, there ARE variations.

               

              Good luck,
