Sequencer: Overlapping Shots mask events
If two Shots overlap each other in the Sequencer editor, then the events from the Events track of the 'lower' shot will not fire. ('lower' shot = visually below the other in the Sequencer window)
If this is the intented behavior, then there should be clear warnings if this situation occurs.
Now, experiment with the vertical arrangement and horizontal overlap of the shots in the Sequencer. The events should fire only if the shots do not overlap or if the shot with the events is the topmost shot.
We generally recommend that you fire events in the master sequence or use SubScenes for these. When a shot is no longer in focus, it is not playing and thus no events will play.
