Hello, I was just editing, I pressed some key and my timeline disappeared! Not the timeline window itself but the actual sequence. To make matters worse I can't find the sequence in my project to reopen it!

Help is much appreciated.

I mean, that might be why the sequence would have seemingly disappeared from the bin, if multiple project bins were open.

You need to give Premiere a chance to properly open before doing anything with the mouse.

If it is still acting weird

FAQ: How to reset (trash) preferences.

RAM is a bit on the lean side. 32 is ok, 64 is better.

You need to make a sequence first in order to use the timeline.

This is quite a little confusing and scary quirk to new users of the software! When you first open the project you can get a blank sequence. I found I had to go into my project (project window) and search for seq (sequences) and I found it there. Thankfully, as I spent a good while editing!!

As I can see I am not the only one, I am quite shocked that the thread dates back three years! We are not all idiots.

Before starting a real project you might want hit the LEARN button on the Home page within Premiere first.

Will save you a lot of frustration and disappointment.

Hi There, @Ann Bens is very much right. I guess this is deeper meaning behind: Sell more trainings.
It is hard to convince co-workers to use Adobe if this continues.

I accidnetally closed my timeline and I figured out to get it back is to go to Window - Workspace - All Panals. That solved my problem without an issue.

I had the same problem. What I eventually figured out was that I used an image to start the process, IMG 097, which by default ended up as the project name, which of course made no sense. (and it was buried in a folder)

 

I went to click on a nested segment while editing but lost my main timeline because it was the file name, not the project name, which I failed to change when starting the project.

 

I found it after looking at a backup version (always back up/version your pojects!)

I hope this made sense.

Hi There,

is it true that all the project is lost because the timeline window was closed and can't be opened?
The built-in autosave function makes sure that you can not go back to the old version.
I cant believe that this is true.

Best,
