I was reading Scott Simmons’ new feature roundup of the new Premiere Pro CC 2014.1 and was excited to learn about the Open Sequence In Timeline command.
This is a feature I have requested in the past along with many other editors, so it was with excitement I put down Scott’s article to try it out. If you are similarly interested in this feature, I want to point out to you that the command is hidden away a bit.
Click the “Settings…” wrench button in the lower-right of the Source Monitor to access a menu with Open Sequence in Timeline near the top.
If you’re like me and find this command’s location a bit out-of-the-way, you might be happy to know you can map the command to a keyboard shortcut.
Another happy outcome of this is that I learned Premiere Pro had a Gang Source and Program command. I didn’t know! Both of these commands deserve easy-to-find buttons in the source monitor panel, but I’m glad I found them in the meantime.
