[Bill Davis] "Which is all well and good.

FCP-X takes "Find Whatever" AND gives you a way to persistently group all the Whatevers together - and after you've done that, you can narrow that list down to only BLUE Whatevers, and make THAT persistent recallable data.

If you can't see how that might be more useful that being limited to "find whatever" then fine.

Your choice.

Why do you think I can't do "find whatever" in FCP 7? AND put them in a group? I'm getting the feeling that some folks here never used the more advanced functions of "find." You DO know that you can search keywords, don't you? And that you can label sub clips? And that you can combine all kinds of searchable metadata like "Linda," "MCU," "Blue," and "Whatevers?"

And that it would gather your search into a single bin? And that you could make a permanent copy of that bin with a couple of keystrokes?

I'm not trying to be obstinate here, but I'm just not seeing the magic.
