I just found the cmd+F by accident...and It dawned on me that I may be able to use this like "select media relatives" in AVID. Is it similar? Is it a feature that people use?

I use it to FIND footage I know the name of, either one at a time, or FIND ALL will highlight all instances of that clip in the sequence. I don't think I used the Find Media Relatives in Avid, so I don't know if it is similar.

I've been Avid editing since 1996 and have never felt the need to use the "find media relatives" feature.

Funny how an indispensable feature for some can be meaningless to another. That's why its hard to write NLE software, I guess.

I don't think FCP has a "find media relatives" equivalent.

Probably due to the different media handling paradigms that the two programs use.

Which is weird, because when I think about it I use that function quite a lot in AVID. But never miss it in FCP.

Bit like transfer modes. Got them in FCP, and use them. Don't have them in AVID, and I don't miss them.

The beauty of having competing software and products.

My workflow was always to have hundreds of clips offlined based on shots - wide/med/tight house/dog/cars.

I'd end up having hundreds of clips...so selecting media relatives would allow me to filter out shots I had used and ones I hadn't. It was indispensable to me for doc style work.
