Hi, does anybody know how to highlight used clips? i already know about the index, but it's really annoying because a lot of times i work with 3 huge clips so it would be easier if the event browser marked the used clips directly!
You cant do that, what you can do is select a clip in the timeline and hit "Shift F" to do a match frame. This sets a range on the relevant clip in the Event Browser but only for individual clips at a time.
Perhaps a work flow could be found in setting favourite ranges as used clips, but it seems like a lot of potential mess.
thanks for the info! i still can't believe something this important is missing in final cut! IMOVIE has this! i work mostly with weddings and many times i don't follow a chronological order and i also use alot of flashbacks so it's really frustating to Shift F everything! i hope they do something about this in the next update!
I was thinking about this since I replied to your post. At first it seemed like it would be simple for them to add a new coloured bar across sections of clips in the event browser marking used clips. These would need to update automatically when trimming, making changes. Or that they could automatically apply a "used" keyword for displaying used/unused keyword collections, these of course would need to update automatically with trimming too.
But I think it could get complex as clips in events can be used across a number of projects.
I'd imagine they'll come up with something and I'm curious as to what. But I'm glad it's not my responsibility to find a solution.
