    Deleted Sequence but may have deleted whole project

    HELP! I'm a complete newbie at media composer and have been using youtube videos and tutorials to help me navigate. I created a 'sequence' but decided I didn't really want to do that so I deleted it. Twice. Or so I thought. I'm thinking I may have deleted my whole project. Is there any way to get it back? I have a homework assignment due in 2 days!! Thanks.

    You can only delete a sequence when MC is open and the bin for that sequence is open.

    You can only delete a project from the project selection window or at finder Explorer level. 

    Is this MC First or regular MC? 

    The Avid attic will have previous copies of bins so you can always re create the project and then copy the Avid attic bins into it. 

    But lesson 101 backup your project to another location like Google drive or a USB stick.

    It may just be in the trash. Are you on Windows or MacOS?

    Hi Pat,

    Thanks for the response. I found it shortly after posting. I got the film edited & exported.

    Thanks again.
