I guess what I'm looking for ultimately is a way of setting Roles/Subroles in the finder. It would be the equivalent of patching tracks at the finder level, as we send everything out and it all passes through Producer's Best Friend. The pain point is Roles not flowing downward, meaning that if you use a clip in the timeline without setting the role in the browser you then have to set the role in the timeline because if you set it in the browser it will not pass down to the clip in use. If you remember to set roles every single time you import anything maybe it wouldn't be so bad, but we remember about 70% of the time which means hunting and pecking down the timeline before exporting XMLs. Setting those roles before import would alleviate those issues.

I haven't really heard anyone else complaining about it so maybe this is an issue unique to our workflow.
