In a FCE 3.5.1 project, have a sequence (call it Sequence 1) that shows a Duration of 00:08:56;12 in the Browser. However, if I open Sequence 1 into the timeline, it is only 00:08:31;20 long.


Sequence 1 is also used within 2 other sequences. In one of them, it shows a duration of 00:08:56;12, the same as the Browser indicates. Where it is nested in the other sequence, it shows a duration of 00:08:31;20, the same as that for Sequence 1 when it is open in the Timeline. Very confusing!


The latter Duration is probably correct since that is what is indicated in the Timeline. Why does it display a different duration in Browser and in one of the Sequences within which it is nested? And what should I do about it, if anything?

    Are the frame rates the same in both Sequence 1 and the timeline in which it is being placed?

    On the sequence you are nesting, do you have in and out points set?
