There is one more place where Sequence Layers pops up. Let's say you're going to create a new composition and you're going to do it by dragging your sources to this New Composition icon. If you know, you also will want to be sequencing those sources, you can go ahead and select your multiple sources, say my multiple tulips here. I'll select all of them, drag them to my New Composition icon, and I'll get some options, including the ability to set the duration, such as 5 seconds a duration, whether or not I want a Single Comp or Multiple Comp.
I want them all in the Single Composition, and I want to sequence them, which I do. Sequence Layers, Overlap. I'll set a duration of just 1 second in this case. Again they're full frame, so I'll Dissolve Front Layer. Click OK. And a brand new comp has been created for me, where they all have been pre-trimmed to 5 seconds, the duration I set. You see the duration here. And they've automatically been sequenced to go through this nice crossfading. So I've got a nice sequence of my flowers.
So that makes editing really fast and easy. If you have a bunch of sources and you're just creating say a bunch of logos, a bunch of photos, some sort of slideshow, you can do it literally in a couple clicks and a drag, as opposed to having you do a lot of hand editing to get the arrangement that you want in time.
