Folder =Event is not accurate from a metadata/workflow perspective and would lead a poor Avid editor down precisely the wrong path toward learning the advantages of X over all ofher NLEs. They are fundamentally different in functionality. One is a container with zero awareness of its contents while the other is a live metadata placeholder.

More correctly, it should be Avid Bin = FCPX Event.

You may be right there, although FC Events = AV Folders and FC Folders = AV Bins, kind of

FCPX Smart Collections = What we have been waiting for from Interplay for about 10 years

The whole thing is fundamentally different. I was attempting to verbalise my understanding. Happy to take crit, obvs.

Weird. My search box is active as soon as the kb panel opens.

[Trevor Asquerthian] "Avid Add Edit = FCPX Blade = ⌘ B"

I find it more helpful to map blade to 'B'. I then map the blade-all function to ⌘B, and the Blade tool (which switches the Select Tool to a blade, then you click to blade) to ⇧⌘B. I rarely use the blade tool as a mode, but I blade all the time (obviously). Mapping the function to B is much faster and easier, especially with the new shortcuts of Select Above/Below in 10.3.

Mine opens up with the command set dropdown selected (rMBP OSX 10.11.6 FC 10.3 - Build 295518)

[Jeremy Garchow] "I find it more helpful to map..."

Yes, I have preferred shortcuts - mainly to match my normal hodge-podge of Avid / FCP7 / Premiere Pro / Sony 9100 / GVG muscle memory & preference to keeping my right hand free... I felt it was better to state the default command set.

Which has, by and large, had a good deal of thought put into it.
