finding a clip in timeline

From the timeline clips can be searched - reveal in browser - to find where it came from.
Is there a way to do the reverse: Go to the clip in an event and reveal in timeline?

Unfortunately, no. Best to submit a feature request. https://www.apple.com/feedback/finalcutpro.html

The workaround I use is to copy the name of the clip in the event and paste it into the Timeline Index. If you used the clip it will be revealed.

You can create a smart collection for used media, which by default is restricted to the current project. Then you can immediately see if that clip was used in the timeline, then use that clip name in the timeline index and jump to the clip.

You can also turn on viewing used media ranges (View>Browser>Used Media Ranges), but this isn't necessary for the above to work.

You sort of can! If you go to your timeline and look to the left, there is a tab called index. You can search for the title of any clip and it will bring you to it in the timeline. You can search for clips, audio files and even transitions. It's basically a list of every time something changes in your timeline.


It will give you a list of all items in your project
