[David Lawrence] "I use color-coding and often create piles on the timeline or in bins. "

me too.

[David Lawrence] "BTW, I'm not saying one way is better than the other. I really do believe preference comes down to brain wiring. I think FCPX's tagging/organization tools are very innovative and powerful. "

totally agree - it's not a hit on X or adherents - I was basically making the point that in writing the various replies, I realised that I actually construct a very spatial iterative memory path thing. it's the iterations of place and order that struck me most. A lot of my footage physically moves under scrutiny at least once. I think thats an important bridge phase. I think there are levels of re-enforcement that go with it.
It does extend the build phase for the edit - but I feel there is a pay off when you start to draw on it at the critical back end. that you are not simply staring at a list of tags - rather that you have a few mental fold iterations of the set of assets - with physical reality, that then bleed into tag style selects sequences anyway - I think your head has a lot more avenues of recall in that context.

mine does anyway. promo producer/editor.grading/motion graphics
