Find clips in sequence
on Aug 8, 2012 at 1:15:40 pm


I'm trialling Premiere Pro as a possible replacement for FCP, in particular for finishing edits. A feature of FCP that I find incredibly useful is the ability to use cmd + F to search for either the next or all clips by name (or any other attribute). I've set up Premiere to use FCP shortcuts, and this feature doesn't seem to exist. Or maybe it isn't mapped? It must be possible!

Any hints would be much appreciated, thanks!

Best wishes,

The Project Window has a 'filter bin content' box. Is that what you are looking for?

Hi Michael,

I know exactly what you are wanting to do. Pr doesn't have that specific feature (to find clips by name in the timeline itself).

How we do go about it in Pr is to find the clip in the Project Panel and then we can see the listing of all the instances used from there.

Selecting from the list will place the playhead at the first frame of the selected instance in the respective timeline (it can jump to a different timeline than which is currently open).

It won't select the clip itself and is a one at a time process.

Use the feature request page to add the find and select feature. :)
Link here.

Cheers JB
