I know it has been mentioned before but there still is this lingering problem.
I always have to select twice "Reveal in browser' to have FCX jump to the clip.
It's just annoying that this simple selection problem has not been solved.
I'm glad I saw this thread, as shift-F does seem to work without problem. That does not change the fact that if you a right-click/ctrl-click and select "show in browser" it most often jumps to some seemingly random clip (but usually in the right event). Definitely a bug, would be great not to have it.
Cannot reproduce this. There must be some other factor that makes it happen. A clip in the primary storyline, even if not targeted, on right-click produces the correct browser file. Can you post a screenshot of part of the project that shows where this happens?
This happens in the main timeline when right-clicking and selecting "find in browser" – but only for the first clip you select after you have the timeline selected. If you then right-click the same clip again OR any other clip in the timeline, the right-click will work like it should. To "reset" back to the buggy behaviour, you have to select some other keyword/event/folder than the one presently open, go back to the timeline, and voila, bug again.
