Re: Using Empty Compound Clips as a FCP 7 Sequence - No Need For Projects

I am just diving into FCPX and this is a great approach to a more traditional avid/fcp7-friendly logging/selects workflow. Great!

Keyword-organizing the compound clips so that they'll show up in their predefined folders is a bit laborious but I don't mind it...the extra care up front pays off.

Coming from Avid, I always started by creating selects in sequences which I could load in my source monitor and cut into my main show, hopping back into the selects to review footage with client as needed. In FCP7, I missed this dearly since sequences cannot be loaded into the source viewer.

Using compound clips as my select compilations works great - Loading the compound clips into my clip viewer effectively operates like a source monitor - I can scrub thru my select comp and cut into my project from there. I also love the timeline index as I can quickly see associated clips/markers/favorites and match into them as needed.
