Finding the sequence in the Sequences bin, which editors created during their first editing session. The Timeline Fast menu contains a number of options that allow editors to change the Timeline's appearance and the view of their sequence. A way of changing Timeline view is by dragging the Scale and Scroll bars found at the bottom of the Timeline In addition to zooming in and out of sequence, they can also perform a vertical resize by expanding the size of their tracks to make them tall and viewable.
