Re: Finding subclip in parent clip

Well, firstly, I did what you said, Ht Davis, made a subclip, put it in the timeline and then double-clicked it, but it showed up in the the Source window in stand-alone form; not as a parent clip with that portion indicated.

Similarly, I opened the parent clip in the source window, did an in/out cut and put it into a timeline. I then double-clicked on that clip and that brought up the parent again with only in/out points marked; nothing was highlighted.

But I wonder if we're mixing our terminology? When I say a subclip of a parent clip I'm merely referring to a shorter piece of a larger clip that itself is a portion of a long take. The long take being, say, a ten minute interview; the larger clip being a few sentences spoken; and the "subclip" being a statement culled from those sentences. It's just an edit. No need o create with a menu selection a "Subclip." Ans what I want to be able to do is find that segment I'm calling a subclip within a larger clip in order to reuse it or replace it in the timeline or whatever. FCPX was far more intuitive with this action.

Is this making any sense?
