[Jeremy Garchow] "You hit i, you hit o, you hit f. Or you drag out a range, you hit f.

That range will stay with that clip forever, and you can have more than one favorited range per clip, and that clip can be represented across multiple keyword collections. That is, in my book, more persistent than anything, unless of course you delete that favorite on every instance everywhere.

End of story?"


Nope. ;)

Favorites/keyword collections are a powerful/flexible sub clipping system. I think it's one of FCPX's best features. But marking an in/out point is different than subclipping. In/outs are persistent, but temporary, like the clipboard. They don't need to be added to a subclip list and kept forever. It's a subtle difference, but the distinction is important and the utility is real.
