I think that unnesting sequences in premiere; that is, quickly undoing the "nest" function to separate your video into all its associate tracks and audio into all its associate tracks, should be available. It would make preparing XMLs for colorists and multi-channel audio exports for audio engineers much easier.
I have been experiencing discomfort for a long time and fully support the new NEST unlock feature. Guys do it as soon as possible. Just one click and the whole hierarchy of your work is restored. This is an extremely important function that has not been available until now. Now it's an extra job, although there are at least 3 ways to get it back. But the new feature would speed up the process. Developers, pay attention to this rather. Waiting waiting waiting

Greetings fellow editors,
meet Grave Robber - an extension that will un-nest nests and multicam sequences.
You can learn more about it here:

I really want to vote for an unnest option. I have the case that I shot and edited a concert and to save some time I was puting this sequence in a new one to just seperate some songs and put some credits into it. Easy job so far, then the band wanted to have a sound engineer to optimize the sound for just this songs and now I have to build all the small clips again because there where a few tracks used. An unnest function would have been so helpful to just drop the material in the new sequences. Also I didn't get why all 2 hours of audio had to be rendered just to export the few minutes in the small sequences which used the bigger sequence but that has nothing to do with the unnest feature.

I'm inheriting a project from another editor who liked to used nested sequences within longer sequences. That's not my preferred method of editing. I'd love a simple way to remove all of those nests.
