Importance of Premiere Pro Sequences
Editing Individual Videos in One Project
For instance, if you are a YouTuber with multiple similar videos, you can edit all the videos in one project without creating a new project for each video. Sequences in Premiere Pro enable you to perform these tasks and make your work simpler.

Make Versions of the Same Video
Use a new sequence for every draft of your video and begin from version 1 of the project. As you make your edits, make a copy of the same sequence and rename it version 2.
This enables you to check the previous sequences and undo any changes.
Break Down a Large Video
If you have a large video clip, use sequences to break down the clip into shorter sections for easier editing. After editing each sequence, you can bring them back together into one large sequence.
