Join Diana Weynand for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding keywords to make clips accessible, part of Effective Storytelling with Final Cut Pro X v10.1.x.
- With some keyword collections…in your Delicious Peace story telling event,…you may feel as though your project is well organized.…Remember though clips can have multiple uses.…If a clip is tucked away in a single keyword collection,…you might not remember it's even there.…It's worth taking the time to add additional tags…and make your clips more accessible…so they'll pop up and remind you…they're waiting to be part of your story.…Now don't forget, when you've added a keyword to a clip,…a thin horizontal blue line appears across the clip.…
Whether you have one keyword or twenty,…you'll only ever have a single line.…Let's take a look at the coffee growing clips.…Now, in looking for JJ there's a clip…of JJ where he's tying a bag.…Here's another one but remember we talked…about naming clips so that they'll appear together…and that would be really great…if I could get all of JJ's clips together.…That will only happen though if I sort…my clips or arrange them by name.…When I do that, I can scroll through…and see the three JJ clips appear together.…
