How to get some basic project metrics?
on May 20, 2019 at 2:45:54 am

So I have a large project, made up of clips and compound clips full of clips. Many of those clips have separated audio, with adjustments made to the audio as well. Is there some way of getting some basic metrics about that project along the lines of:

how many individual segments are there?
how many of those segments are video? audio?
how many cuts in the video overall?
duration of all source clips in the project?
number of favorites across all source clips?

I'm thinking at least the first 2 or 3 above might be possible by exporting XML and counting some number of tags?

google "Producers Best Friend".
I don't have it, but I've heard good things about the app. It may do what you need.

[Julie Turner] "how many individual segments are there?

I believe you can get most of these information in the timeline index. Select all the clips and it will show how many and the duration. Select Video or Audio accordingly. You might want to duplicate the project first and break apart all the compound clips first.

By project do you mean library? Just select all in the browser and the duration will be displayed at the bottom. Make sure to unmark all selections first (opt-x)

[Julie Turner] "number of favorites across all source clips?"

Same as above, just switch to Favorites.
