Come on carsten - lets take the example of commercial work - editing projects are called by specific client briefs - it is a truth in all facilities that there are complex and specific naming conventions for the elements of these campaigns.

An edit project - a super structure file - a single instance effort that took place and is named specifically, down to number code, that needs to be whole and unto itself, able to be called, in its entirety, months or years after, is brass tacks as a component in that environment.

You need to be able to call, and dismiss, pretty much the entirety of an editorial effort, by calling a single name/file.

Not pick though an insane hodgepodge of de-activated event footage archives and projects.

That hodgepodge is just not on - if you really think through the implications of that FCPX architecture, over time, in a facility, with different freelance operators hitting the same system at different time points.. seriously -

it's a bad joke Carsten. It's beyond ridicule. promo producer/editor.grading/motion graphics
