There not linked..
Although i have found since moving onto CS3 that it can even when minimised close sequences on its own accord. Check your bins and double click there to re-open.
I'm quite sure there is no connection, and/or you could
The bins are not wisible in the list over files that are used. They don't exist anywere else than in the timeline-window.
at the top of your bin you have a panel with find:...........
Just above this is a folder with a return arrow on it.
come out of the folder that your in and the rest of your bins will appear...
I can't click on it! I love computers, NOT!
>Somehow the two documents are linked together even though they have nothing to do with each other.
That just ain't normal. Any chance one project has been imported into the other?
Lotta, this is a known bug in PPro CS3. If you click on the x on any empty Timeline PPro CS3 will just close it without deleting anything from any Project.
So, closing the two Timelines in Project 2 will not harm Project 1, Project 2 or any other Project for you. :)
Sorry, I don't see how that is a bug? I thought that's what the x is for... to close something.
It's not a bug. The windows you have opened and closed and their positions are part of your workspace, which is independent from your projects. Also, there is a distinction between timelines and sequences. Sequences contain your edits, the timelines are windows through which you view sequences.
In Project1, you created 3 sequences, and 3 timeline windows were open to show you the contents of the sequences. At the time you saved and closed Project1 your workspace state was also saved (with the 3 open sequence windows). When you load Project2, your workspace determines the open windows and locations and since there is only 1 sequence in this project, only one timeline window is needed to display it... the other 2 timeline windows remain blank.
For a given workspace, Premiere gives the user priority on window layout, not automatically closing or reordering windows depending on the project.
This must be something new in CS3. I have use premier pro 2 before and I have never hade this problem.
But it's good to know that it's nothing wrong with my CS3.
> Also, there is a distinction between timelines and sequences. Sequences contain your edits, the timelines are windows through which you view sequences.
Actually, a timeline and a sequence are the same thing. Earlier versions of Premiere used the word timeline. Premiere Pro changed to the word sequence. But they're effectively the same thing.
The "window" you use to see the sequence/timeline is called in the documentation either a "pane" or a "panel", I forget which.
Eriksson, you are correct. The workspace implementation changed from Premiere Pro 2.0 to CS3, and there are subtle differences.
Jim, earlier versions (pre Premiere Pro 1.0) only had one timeline, so that was the only word used. Things got more complex in Premiere Pro 1.0 when the multiple timeline feature was added. Premiere added "Sequence" to the nomenclature to distinguish the item that appears in the project window from the window used to display its contents.
I'm not trying to split hairs, the distinction is germane to the issue of 2 empty timeline panes appearing in Eriksson's Project 2. There are three timelines panes present, but only 1 sequence in the project.
So how do you get a Timeline pane without opening a sequence?
> So how do you get a Timeline pane without opening a sequence?
Close the last open sequence in the current Timeline panel and then choose Window > Timeline.
OK. But why would anyone do that three times to get three blank panes? When Eriksson said three timelines were created, I assumed that three new sequences were created. What would be the purpose of opening up multiple panes without sequences in them?
