I never actually used it, but back when I took a couple classes on Avid, I remember seeing something called the "Super Bin". Is this at all similar to the "events" folder in FCPX?

its been replaced with tab’d bins,, some love the new way, some hate it. I never really used superbins cause ive never had to save space, but i do like the new tabbed method, especially when relinking and doing onlines.

For those who've made the switch to Premiere Pro CS6, or even those using one of the CS products such as Production Pro, try using Adobe Bridge as your project organizer. It has some really powerful file organization capabilities, aside from your own careful organization of your folders. There's a feature called Collections, which lets you take any number of files (not just video clips...graphics, audio, whatever) and assign them to a collection. It doesn't move anything around, or duplicate files, it just creates pointers to your "stuff", so that you can find everything in one place, no matter where it is. Using that, in addition to the metadata, labels, and keyword features, allows you to keep your finger on thousands of files, view them, play them back for review, and drag and drop them into the various Adobe software packages.
What's interesting that there was no real reason to remove superbin functionality as the tabbed bins could have been additional functionality. What I miss about superbin is the ability to drag clips to a closed bin.
