FCPX Jumping to random clip when I Mark In?
on Oct 21, 2013 at 7:45:43 pm

Hello,

I was wondering if anyone else is having this issue with FCPX.

I have keyworded subclips from master clips. When I view the keyworded clip and try and mark in to change the "In" point (by hitting "I") - FCPX jumps to an entirely different clip? The only way I can mark-in is to find the original clip and mark an In point there. Seems to defeat the purpose of Keywording?

I would kill for some Bins. . .

As always, any help would be greatly appreciated.

It's a bug. In list view, it jumps to the first range from whatever clip the range you selected is on... the workaround is to switch out of list view to filmstrip view. Alternately, if you just select the keyworded range, and then click on whatever Event/Keyword collection hold the master clip, the range will be selected there and you can work from that. I hope it will get fixed soon...

Thanks Charlie,

I am having trouble embracing FCPX. Marking an "In" point is kinda important.

Seems that FCPX should think about fixing it.

Thanks again for this info. I am just curious, does this happen to everyone running FCPX? Or is it just a select few lucky guys like me?

Its great to be lucky. . .

It seems kind of random to be honest. It'll get fixed. :-)

It's also workflow centric.

I don't do my range selection and keywording work in the database view - I think filmstrip view is much easier since I make it part of my initial Reject pass to narrow my focus to content I think may have value.

Reject first. Keyword and Favorite rhe remainder. Collapsing into database view with all the numerical data displayed seems a terrible waste of screen space when what i want to do is select and judge footage.

But that's just me.

Workflow is one thing, and to each their own right? This problem, however, is a bug. X does have some of those ya know... ;-)
