And now for the pictures.

Here's a clip that I have for a current project in FCP7. It has extended markers to persistently mark the parts of the clip I like, always and forever.

It is a goalie leaning down in to the camera, and there's multiple takes on this one camera roll:


Here's the same clip in FCPX, but instead of extended markers, I know have favorites:


I now sort the Browser by favorites (control-f) and by filmstrip view (command-option-1). Some might call these "subclips":


So, if I were to mark in and out on all of those favorites and have FCPX remember all those in and out points (in this case it would be 5 from this one clip), when I sort by all clips (control-f), which one of those in and points will be displayed on this clip? Right now, FCPX chooses to display none of them (except for, of course, I have my favorites marked already, so they never go away until I want them too. Perhaps those are PIOPs, maybe?)

So, it is right here, that non "user set" PIOPs would get more complicated as which one should FCPX remember? This same rule also applies to keywords, that is, if you had one keyword on multiple sections of a clip.

Let's work the other way (which presents a bit of a different scenario).

Let's say I select all the favorites, this marks a range that FCPX, actually sort of remembers. For example.

Here's all of the favorites selected, this creates a new range, really:


Then I sort by Favorites (control-f):


See what happens? All clips are selected but not really ranged. If you notice, the icon is different, it's not a range icon, but rather just a thin yellow line. I can in fact add all of those clip to the timeline through the normal edit features (q, w, whatever you want).

If I sort back to "all clips", then only the last favorite is selected:
