Find duration of entire Library?
on Jan 1, 2016 at 2:59:57 am

Is there a quick way to find the sum of the duration of all video clips in an FCPX library? I am working on a documentary that we've been shooting for a year and a half, and want to find out exactly how many hours we have shot so far.

Thanks!

If you just do a CTRL-A in the Event Browser to select all, at the bottom of that pane will be the cumulative duration of all clips.

Other methods of getting various clip durations:

- Select clip OR range in browser, at bottom of browser is duration
- Select Project, at bottom is duration of entire project
- Select multiple projects in browser, at bottom is total duration
- Select multiple clips in browser (can be non-contiguous), at bottom is total duration
- At bottom of timeline, duration for current project is shown (no clicking required)
- In timeline, doing a range select (R tool) will show duration of range at bottom
- CTRL-D: shows duration of selected clip in timecode window

Thanks! So easy, I knew I must be missing something.

I added a smart collection with the filters- Media is: video with audio, Type is not: synchronized, compound, mulitcam, and project. That gave my my original video in a smart collection to check duration of only what we had shot, without the separate audio tracks or clips I created by syncing.

Thanks again for the simple solution.
