Just trying to figure that out myself. They seem to function exactly the same way.

Using "Make Subsequence" on a selection of clips in a sequence will 1) create a new sequence in your bin, and 2) place the selected clips into the sequence. However, unlike "Nest," it will not replace those selected clips. This is a useful option if you want to preserve a backup of a portion of your sequence before you revise that portion.

Nest will leave you with a nested sequence.

Subsequence leaves you with the original clips.

Well, it doens't really work like that, right?

 

'Nest' will place video and audio tracks into the new sequence AND will leave the original audio tracks on the timeline. Why???

I'm not at my editing computer now, but there is a setting to show nests as a single nested clip or as the individual clips on the timeline.

Qualifier with newest version, there is alittle button up in the left corner of the timeline panel that can modify the behaviour on the timeline. It can take a nested or sub-sequence and show it as though it were the original seperate clips inside the sub-sequence.

Thank you @SplineTimeLine ! My word I aged about 2 years when it stopped working recently. Everyone should take note of this, it's left the magnet icon. Activate it so that subsequences and nests appear as a green item, and not as the original clip.

A subsequence and a nest do almost the same thing.

 

When you create a subsequence, nothing happens on the timeline to the clips you've chosen to be included. A subsequence leaves the clips untouched. However, you can find the subsequence safely bundled in the Project Panel. The creation of a subsequence is quick & dirtyUpon creation, a subsequence will not prompt you to enter a name (label) & Premiere Pro will instead generate a name automatically with "_Sub_01" appended. To change the subsequence's generated name, you must locate the subsequence in the Project Panel, right click on it, and choose "rename". 

 

At creation, a nest will prompt you to enter a name (label) for it & all the clips you've selected to be included in the nest will be rolled into one bar on the timeline. You can see this obvious change. Have no fear! All clips are still editable by double clicking to unfurl the nest in a new & separate timeline panel. The nest will also reside in a safe little bundle — neat, tidy ... warm, loved ... and properly named at birth.

 

Both nests & subsequences can be added to the timeline as bundles or as individual files. It depends on the status of this button (outlined in red) — active or not.

post reply edit approx. 1 month after initial reply:

I've also just discovered that you can set an in and out point & create a subsequence from the Sequence Menu > "Make Subsequence".  For every track in which you have the track target turned on (this is important), it will clip those tracks (at the in and out points) and place those clips into a subsequence (located in your bin of files). Again, no destruction to clips in timeline — they remain untouched.
