[Carsten Orlt] "I think you are missing one of the most powerful feature of X: organizing in the event.
e.g. to have all your best takes quickly can be done by just giving them (or sections of longer clips) a keyword called 'best' to get all best takes from day 3 is than done by combining searches. Actually any kind of organizational task that you would use sequences for in legacy or any other NLE can be done in X by using keywords, favorites and markers."

Agreed. I'm working on a project now... promo reel for a studio. I have 30 features as sources, all of which I need to go through and pull selects from. Using the skimmer, Smart Collections and 9 keywords I'm flying through this stuff. Need an "action" shot? click the collection with that name and all the shots I've tagged as such, from all the films, show up in a "bin" ready to go. In FCP7 I'd be in hell right about now. It's great.
