Bill, my goal is the same as your method with the Project. If I want to window dub all the clips of Dave Smith, I highlight the first one in the Event Lib, make a compound from it, name it Dave Smith window dub, and then append all the rest of the Dave clips to the compound. This puts the compound in the Event Library and the default is to match the timecode to the first clip. Drop the TC generator on and stretch it and I'm done. Seems like the only basic difference is that you store a Project and I store a compound clip in the Event Library. That makes it real easy for me to see that I have created window dubs of all the source clips--usually interviews in my case. It works with sequentially coded clips--would not work with the time-of-day coded clips that Bruce has.

When I get the selects back from the client, I just use the original clips and Favorite the selects as I mark them.
