Sequence Window

Sequence window with one track highlighted
In the Sequence window, we can insert and organize Layers into tracks, play them back, and much more.
Good to know: On the bottom right of the Sequence Window, there are two opacity values, one indicating Fade and the other indicating Volume.

Sequence Management

You can switch between existing Sequences in three different ways:
  • by double-clicking them from the Sequences list on the left side of the Sequence window,
  • by clicking on the settings icon and selecting it from the Sequence list,
  • by double-clicking on its container in the Timelines window.
Good to know: You can hide the Sequence list by going to Edit -> Preferences -> UI and disabling Show sequences list checkbox.

Track Management

Each Sequence consists of tracks where we can place Layers.

Add or Delete Tracks

To adjust the number of tracks in a Sequence, use the controls in the bottom left corner of the window.

Track Options

There are a few track options:
  • Expand icon enables you to see a live preview of the texture rendered by the active layer in the track.
The preview only appears if there is at least one active Render Texture node in the layer.
  • Disable icon stops all layers in the track from executing, even if an active playhead is overlapping them,
  • Solo icon disables all layers from all other tracks, so they stop executing, and
  • Lock prevents you from moving or manipulating all layers in the chosen track.

Rearrange Tracks

Similar to how you can rearrange Timelines in the Timelines Window, you can also rearrange Tracks in the Sequence Window.
To change the order of a Sequence Track, click on its Expand icon, then drag an arrow to the Track where you want it to be.
