Your explanation of the problem is not understandable. Please provide the actual steps you took and specifically what happened.
I dont know what you mean by you edited the 2nd seq and it didnt auto-refresh. The very essesnce of editing means you are changing something. Are you saying you tried to edit and it wouldnt let you?
I have to admit, I don't get it either.
I started by assuming that sequence 2 is nested inside sequence 1 and that when sequence 2 is changed, those changes do not appear in the nested sequence on timeline 1. This would be anomalous behaviour, so maybe that is not what is meant.
Good morning gentlemen,
I guess I shouldn't try writing emails so late at night :-)
Ok, here I go again.
On video 1 track I have a video of a few minutes.
this is sequence 1
I then wanted to have an animated logo to show up over that video on the time line. So, I created a 2nd sequence, ( sequence 2 ) and now added my 6 frame animation to this new sequence, and repeated it 10 times so I had a total of 60 frames. So far so good, so I then took that sequence 2 and added it to the time line and played the video. The animated logo was far too short, it didn't last the entire length of the video. So, I went back to sequence 2 and added more frames of animation to make the duration longer. I then went back to the video, and played it, and of course, the sequence had not updated, the length was still the same. I needed to remove sequence 2 and then add it again, for the changes to take effect.
I hope this clears up my muddled writing of last night :-)
Sequences dynamically update, ive never seen them not. If you made the sequence longer, its nested version doesnt automatically stretch where ever it is nested. This would violate the editing rules of non intentional affecting dowstream edits.
All you need to do is grab the edge of the nested sequence and stretch it out to its new length. Nothing is broken.
