[Jeremy Garchow]"Compound clips are also clips in your Event Browser. "
Just to expand on this - I think it's really difficult for those used to working nearly exclusively in a timeline system to understand this.
Compound clips in X are really interesting. They're typically born on the timeline - but at the moment you compound them - they're reflected back to the Event Browser. So there's a sorta "round-trip" data flow established with a compound clip that you need to get your head around.
But one cool thing about then is what Jeremy is noting. If you think of your event browser as the shelves where you store your timeline's parts - and compounds as assemblies that you build from those parts inside the timeline - then copying parts from one finished product to another is more complicated than just grabbing s clone off the shelf and making changes to it.
More of that "new thinking" in X we're always talking about.
