We've just been looking at the find feature, and I want to look at something similar, but different, which is filtering. Let's take a look at how it works in Premier Pro. Now, I've decided to add metadata in the description and log note fields in this example. But I do want to point out that one of the editable fields is the name field. And you can rename your clips inside Premier and you won't be disturbing the file names of the assets themselves as they sit on the drive. Many workflows include renaming the clips, this particular set of clips had some names in it and some with just numbers and I've decided I'd prefer to use description and log note for the additional information.
Now, I just want to show you how this filter box works different and find, that we just did. If I have a similar scenario, I'm looking for clips that feature our subject David, and have good audio. As you can see, as I start typing it's going to auto populate for things that it matches. All I need to get is Dav and it tells me automatically that I have five clips with David in it. Also, the entire project panel had been filtered, meaning all it's showing me is clips that have David.
So now I can do a quick scan and see in a moment I've got two that have good audio and are still visible with David R. I do want to add when filtering that you have a choice to filter based on what's visible, meaning you can see the clip In a Bin, everything, meaning everything in the project and also the text transcript. So if you have transcripts appended to some of these clips, we can also filter by the words that are being spoken.
You can see how filtering is similar to searching, but in some cases it's going to be a quicker way to find what you're looking for because it's so highly contextual.
