What is a Sequence and how do we create one?

Sequence (also called timeline or storyboard) is a series of video clips or subclips arranged in a linear order. This functionality enables eMAM users to contribute to the editing process from the Director interface.Any number of sequences can be created within a given project or bin (subproject). Sequences can be sent directly to editors using eShare (Fluid theme) or they can be shared with producers, clients and other collaborators for review and approval. Editors can share their editing sequences or projects back to eMAM for review and approval, collaboration, sharing, delivery, or archive.
