When opening your sequence, the simulated preview is calculated in memory, which can take some time. A spinner will be displayed and the play buttons disabled until the calculations are complete:
Once complete, a green checkmark is displayed next to the preview name. Any subsequent changes to the sequence will cause the preview for the affected props to be recalculated; the play buttons will again be temporarily disabled until the recalculation is complete.
You can play back your sequence several ways:
Play the full sequence
Play from the current location to the end of the sequence
Play from the beginning of the sequence to the current location
Play the visible portion of the sequence
You can also play back a specific prop. To do this, right-click on a prop name and select one of the choices from the pop-up menu. As a shortcut, you can double-click on a prop name to play the visible portion of the sequence. Double-click again if you want to stop prematurely. In this mode, the selected prop will play back in the upper-right window.
