[David Lawrence] "How about a screen grab of your virtual pancakes, Bill? I'm having a hard time visualizing how you achieve the same level of spatial mapping as is intrinsic to string-out sequences and markers."

On deadline today but will try to do some screen caps overnight if my schedule eases up later.

But the browser in X - after a keyword selection - set in thumbnail (not database) view and set up in a near full screen width layout presents the same information in nearly the same visual array that stringouts and pancakes manage in a traditional NLE, at least as I understand them. (granted, I've never had to peraonally pancake anything since I switched to X before that editing style became fashionable.)

And of course, each keyword collection, or smart collection can aggregate that basic view ACROSS keywords into the same visual display.

Grabbing a range in the Browser and executing an insert, connect, or append edit singe-keystroke is functionally akin to dragging a clip from the pancake into your timeline - and the visual representation is barely different. Unless there's some special magic to a pancake arrangement that I'm unaware of.

Might be fun to have someone post a "traditional pancake" arrangement in a non-magnetic timeline - and then I can try to do the functional equivalent in X. Than we we can all compare the differences? Just a suggestion.
