This guide is here to get you started with Power Sequencer. It will show you time-saving features when editing with the add-on.
Power Sequencer builds upon Blender’s Sequencer and adds features to help you save time when editing. It focuses on everything that has to do with cutting, trimming, moving, importing, and deleting sequences. It does not add features related to compositing or motion design.
Also, we designed it to work in conjunction with other add-ons like the VSE Transform Tools, an add-on to manipulate images directly in the sequencer preview.

By default, Blender will save your preferences and the add-on will be active the next time you start Blender.
We designed Power Sequencer to work well with projects where the blend file and all the footage are in one directory:
. ├── 03.state-class-1.blend └── footage ├── 03.state-class-1.flv ├── 03.state-class-2-fix-end.flv ├── 03.state-class-3-fix-end-2.flv └── BL_proxy
To import all the video, audio, and image files at once, go to the Power Sequencer menu and click
File -> Import Local Footage (Ctrl Shift I).
This feature adds strips to the editing board for each file found in your project folder. It also detects already imported footage, and only imports newly found files by default.
Power Sequencer sets the strips it imports to use proxies automatically, based on your preferences:
