i am experimenting with the collapse feature. i seem to have trouble "un collapsing" by following any of the options mentioned in the manual. could someone give me a step by step. MC v3
Here's what I'd do:
1. Step into the collapsed effect.
2. Mark in to out.
3. ALT+copy to clipboard
The collapsed section is now loaded in the source monitor without the collapse; un-collapsed, in other words.
4. Overwrite the un-collapsed section back into the sequence.
Hope that helps.

This is my workflow for before doing any collapse or mixdown.
Save the sequence before collapsing.
Duplicate the sequence and name the duplicate as xxx collapse date time.
Duplicate sequences make it very easy to get back to a pre collapsed or mixed down timeline.

thank you all for your quick response.
i duplicate anything i am going to mixdown so i will follow the same procedure with the collapse function and save the subclip in the appropriate bin.
what threw me off was page 254 of my bible (avid advance effects guide) where under to open the nested tracks again:
those funtions did not work. i have not run across much in the manuals that does not work if i do it correctly so i thought i was missing a step.
When you collapse a section of the timeline, a submaster effect is created. You can step into and out of that submaster clip just like you can any other nested effect to get to the original elements. Just use the up and down arrow key buttons on the timeline toolbar. You can also double click the submaster and have the collapsed layers revealed above the timeline.
