Determine which shots are duplicates

Is there a way to determine if a shot has been used more than once in a project?

You can see clips that are used in a project within the Event Browser. More details here:

There is no current version of "duplicate frames" indicators ala FCP7 in X. But besides the other answer above, you can also open the Timeline Index (lower left button), and if you suspect a clip has been used before you can type in a search for that clip, and it will show you how many instances there are in the sequence. But that's not exactly the same.

Now that we have used/unused media ranges in the Event browser, I'd expect this to return in a future update.

Yeah I've been hoping for a reveal in timeline feature. Also if you have a long clip in the browser that got sub clipped and broken up in the browser and timeline, I can't see a way of searching for a given sub clip in the index. Is there?

Sub-clips don't exists in X- so regardless of how you've tagged a file with keywords or favourites for organization in the Event Browser, the file that you've edited into the timeline all point back to the original file.

The Timeline Index can't point you to a specific iteration of a clip- but it will show you all iterations of that clip, regardless of keywording or other tags.

Right now you can search back from Timeline into Event Browser [SHIFT-F], but more cross-talk of metadata would be great, and I think it's certainly possible now that they're all in a single database.

That's true but they are listed below the master clip with specific timecode and lines overlaid on the filmstrip representation and a tag indicating its been used - that range. So the metadata is there - can't see why they can't point to that range use in the timeline. When you are on the timeline and select reveal in browser, it does show that portion of the clip and even the playhead location. They are FCP X's version of a sub-clip. And if you really want it to function as an independent sub-clip you can select a range and create a compound clip. But I think that's a bit messy.
