I believe that the most common answer is nested sequences.
In my case I have sequences nested within sequences nested within sequences, just for one scene. Then I take all of the sequences and put them on the same timeline to create the long form video.
In fact, mine looks like that for a 3 minutes piece.
The reason I had time to answer this question is that I am rendering a sequence within a sequence right now.
Thanks Steven. If that's the best way to approach it, I'll do that. I assume that if I update the nested sequence, I'll get an update on the sequence where it has been nested. I'll explore that more myself. Thanks

? Do most of you nest your sequences or cut and paste?
Any best practices here?
Based on experience with earlier versions i tend to copy paste rather use nested sequences in a master sequence especially in long projects.
Just to avoid export getting stuck on a nested sequence.
I think its a sort of trial and error: export with nested sequences. If it gets stuck; copy/paste.
On the other hand, I use sequences in other sequences to enable use of the adjustment layer on specific tracks. All you have to do to get to the original is doubleclick on the nested sequence. And if that has a nested sequence, drill down into that by doubleclicking.
It is rather like a precomp in Ae.
