    My timeline won't show the clips on it.

    I'm sure the solution is a workspace setting or a qick click of some kind. I double click on the sequence and it doesn't show any clips, but i know the sequence has clips on it. The sequence file has a size bigger than 0. But just in case I had deleted everything on the timeline, I went to the attic and retrieved an earlier copy. But i open it and the timeline still isn't showing any clips.

    What obvious thing am I missing?

    I'm including screen shots. I am a student learning the product.

    Looks like you havn't dropped any clips onto the timeline.  You can use the red overwrite arrow above the timeline with the source monitor active to place your clips on the timeline.  Then it will show in the record monitor and timeline.

    Hope this helps,

    the media your showing is in the source monitor  you have no clips in the timeline  they would show up in the rt monitor.. and you can drag and drop clips in to the time line from the bins...
