[David Lawrence] "So what's more efficient? Markers or metadata?"

For me it isn't either or, but both.

I use the metadata in the browser as I log and create favorites. I then write into the favorites notes about the clip and why I chose it.

I use markers in the timeline for notes like "get rights to this photo" and check them off as they are completed. I can search those out in the timeline index quickly.

I really enjoyed his presentation. He is old school with those hand written notes.

I prefer as much of the clients notes in email form as possible. Them "I don't remember saying that" Me "here is your email" : )

I can paste their email right into a marker in the timeline. I prefer it there, instead of on my desk. I don't like clutter.

Like he said, when that client wants to see something as long as you can get it fast it doesn't matter how you do it.
