Bright Blue Clips

Not meaning to break into the oh-so-interesting FCPX Argument banter, but I have a curious thing happening in one Library that has many projects in it. I was recently asked to cut a shorter version of an approximately 3:45 recruiting video. Once duplicated I noticed a strange thing happening. I did a duplicate as snapshot of the latest "approved version" and created a "recut" version. But I noticed that my clips in the version I duplicated turned a bright blue compared to the other projects in the Library (there are 17 project versions in the Library). Is this a "feature" I am missing? I kind of like the brighter blue. Have I activated a feature that does this? Apologies in advance if this is a "forehead-slap" question.


Longer version that was duplicated

It is selected, but if I turn that off, the video goes off.

Click at the bottom of the selections so that video is not highlighted.

Thank you Tony!

That was it...must have done it by accident.

The 'feature' that you are missing that it allows you to quickly see stuff in the timeline. So if you would have Dialog and Music and SFX Roles set-up, with one click you can see all those (for instance) Music clips quickly in the timeline :-)

Yeah, don't use that feature, but can certainly see the advantages of it. Will be used as needed in the future, thanks.
