I'm not sure I know what that means. But you can of course use the Timeline Index to find/filter clips. And if you see a orange "Used" bar underneath a clip in the event, then that means it's being used in the active project/timeline.

Right click a clip in Browser and you can reveal in finder. Right click a clip in timeline and u can reveal in browser. Would like to reveal in timeline from browser.

Agreed it would be a nice function! Heading off to the FCP X feedback link.

Which timeline? You DO know that you can easily have a clip in the browser that's been placed in 100 timelines?

Plus, now a network can have 10 users that might all be referencing the same clip. Should X open ALL those instances.


Do you want it to reveal itself in ALL of them? Are you willing to wait while it loads them all into memory?

active and or open timelines. I wouldn't mind a pop up that allowed me to select others.

If I "reveal in finder" and a back up was on an unmounted drive, I do not think FC would reveal it.

Again, that's what the Timeline Index is for. Maybe not as one-click, but then you don't have to look for the clip in the event first either.

[Bill Davis] "Which timeline? You DO know that you can easily have a clip in the browser that's been placed in 100 timelines?"

A clip is only marked as used in the context of the current active timeline, Bill, so yes, common sense tells me it would of course only be for that timeline. And it works without showing in 100 different places in other NLEs also.

Certainly the index can be used that way, but reverse match frame is a standard concept. You're browsing for broll. It shows it's been used. So it should be a simple keystroke to show where. Not a search in the timeline index. That's over complicating things.

I wish they'd bring back other things like dupe detection. Another 15 year old standard concept.

Yeah, some missing features are just missing. I really like the way X reveals in browser in that you not only see the clip but a filmstrip with the used portion highlighted. Now do the equivalent in reverse so i can quickly decide whether my current need for that same clip would be better, does more harm than good, or can be used in both locations.

Well, the "used" tag will be there if it's in any of your open timelines, then you could search that TL for the clip name.

I believe you're referring to a "reverse matchframe". All the other majors have it. I think common sense dictates that it would function in the active project especially since only one can be open at a time anyway.

True and all I was really asking about.

I think the same. It should be easy to check whether a selected clip or region is used in the current project. It makes sense as well - especially when there are copyright issues. In latter case you could use the XML but a right-click or similar would be easier.

<<Would like to reveal in timeline from browser.>>

Click on triangle of a clip under Video Usage or Audio usage.
A dropdown menu will navigata to the clip on the timeline.

You can also do this from the little Preview Area of the Project Window.

One can only assume you're not in fact talking about FCP X, since I for one know of no such triangle.
