[Aindreas Gallagher] " straightforward terms the transformative importance of the database..."
My most straightforward 'need' is for different captures (tape) or transfers (card) of the same material - A/V + timecode + Reel Name - to be seen by the NLE as linkable with no issues, regardless of clip in/outs etc. So for example if a whole tape had been captured overall, then fragmentary clip sections subsequently recaptured would work in the edited project without any relink fiddling and fooling around.

A label based spreadsheet like FCP Legacy couldn't do this as it can't see beyond the original capture/ingest labeling of the video. All that Shift-F matchback malarky if you've brought clips into the browser from another project.

A proper database would see clips from identical assets as being the same thing even if brought to the project by different ingest methods.

That's where my puck has been - awaiting an NLE to catch up with it... ;-)
