Bill, would you elaborate a bit on your comment below? In a (very) rare event, I have strapped myself down in front of FCPX tutorials (I do NOT do tutorials! lol) and have been learning X while trying as little as possible to "mold" it to my way thinking. I've found quite a few things that make me pause and go "hmm.... that's neat...", not the least of which are the metadata aspects.

What's your workflow to support the concept below? Add metadata as you work, then when project is complete, offline the media, but keep the project files online to enable metadata searching? I can immediately think of one client where a "permanent metadata library" would be a heck of a thing, WAY better than just named clips & folders. Which then leads to the question; could metadata for clips be shared? (Simple as sharing an event with clip info?)

In X, I see my edits a little bit more as mini-programs in a connected library. And so the metadata is the core to searching, sorting and re-purposing it after the fact.
