    A faster way of creating a new sequence, rather than right-clicking all of the clips, is to click "Premiere Pro CC"
    .

    We press the key combination that we would like to use for the action
    .
    First, we'll do something that's common so that we know how not to overwrite one of the existing keyboard shortcuts. Let's press "command" and "S", which is typically reserved for "Save". The warning will be given, which reads: "The shortcut Cmd+S was already in use by the Application > File > Save command. That command will no longer have a keyboard shortcut."
