Half the battle of preparing to edit this documentary is knowing what clips you have…to tell the Farm To Table story.…That comes with repeated screenings of this footage.…The other half of the battle is knowing where to find the clips you need when you need them.…That's where Final Cut Pro's Filter window comes in handy.…It not only lets you create a complex search but you can also organize your findings into…a smart collection.…So if we take a look in the event browser, we see columns such as Name, Notes, Start,…End, Duration, Content Created, Roles, and so on.…
This is all the information that Final Cut Pro knows about a clip.…And it can search for a clip based on any criteria that it knows, or that you give it.…Such as keyword collections, it can search by any of the keyword collections that have…already been created.…The simplest way to search is to simply click in the search field and type what you want to search for.…Now we could type for BD and all the clips of BD in this collection come up.…
If we wanted to search for BD in the entire event, that gives us a longer list.…
