[Douglas K. Dempsey] "various clips or trims that I have decided NOT to use, but want to keep close by and visible as outtakes... because I may reconstitute them into the edit at any moment.

Once I am done pulling out these "non-selects" from a section of the edit, I will drag and select them all, hit cmd-G to make them into a single "secondary storyline" container, and drop that item at the end of my timeline,"

This is exactly how I work (accept I have remapped my keyboard to make cmd-G just G : )

I never had worked like this in the past because having all that extra stuff in the timeline with tracks would just be too cluttered.

Since the X timeline is so streamlined, which was one of the main points of it in the first place, I will have a bunch of clips sitting there muted that I will move around and try.
