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.

The moral to this story for new editors is to learn 2 things:

  • How to open a sequence.
  • How to determine the difference between a sequence and a clip in Icon view.
    • Answer: The icon will have different icons in the lower right corner of the clip.

 

Thanks,
Kevin

I love you wow. You just saved me. I had auto saves on and everything but my computer updated itself and made it impossible to get my timeline back. Spent hours trying to figure it out so thank you so much.

Jenny - this is a totally fantastic tip.  I thought I had lost 5 days of work and it reappeared - even after I had committed the cardinal sin of closing the programme.  Massive, and I mean massive, relief so thank you!  First time I have ever gone into a community forum and this is the reason why.

Is it possible you have multiple project files open at once?

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.

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.
