Hi there, I make nested sequences a lot for multicam edits. However, sometimes my nested sequences will not open as the others regularly do, and I can't figure out how to do so when I need to color correct the nested video tracks. This always happens when there's a different looking icon then the normal looking sequence icon. Here are the two icons with the top one being the one that won't open with a sequence as the others normally do:

Can' someone please explain the difference? And if it's possible for me to make the top one like the bottom one? Thank you.

Ok just figured it out. When you right click in the project panel there's an option for "Open in source Monitor" or "Open in timeline" and open in timeline fixed the problem. Still a confusing feature that just lost me an hour troubleshooting while I'm on a deadline. This should be looked at, still no idea how I toggled the symbol to change and still haven't figured out how to change it back, but at least I was able to access the timeline again.

It appears the problem was identified here but not solved. I'm having the same issue, somehow my source sequence for my multicam sequence icon changed as pictured above, but I can't figure out how to change it back. When I double click I just see the multicam monitor but no timeline. I use the timeline to apply effects to the source clips and I can't access it now. How do you toggle it back and forth?

I'm with you. That icon made me mad. I have done nothing special for that sequence but it somehow appeared like that. Kind of troublesome to right click and open in timeline.
