Power Sequencer add-on logo

At GDquest we edit all of our videos with Blender. It’s a powerful tool, but its default workflow can feel a little slow. That’s why we built Power Sequencer , a Free and Open Source add-on that’s all about helping you work efficiently and comfortably.

Edit at the speed of thought

Edit one or many strips at a time with your cursor! Auto locks on to channels and removes gaps based on where you click

One key Import and Export

Load all local footage, pictures, and audio files with one keystroke. The add-on keeps track of imported files per-project.
