Join Abba Shapiro for an in-depth discussion in this video Organizing and keywording clips, part of Migrating from Final Cut Pro 7 to Final Cut Pro X (2011).
In this movie we are going to work with clips in our Event Library.…We are going to show you how to rename clips, how to rate clips, add keywords,…and then be able to find and search all your media by those keywords.…The first thing you'll notice is that the clips that we imported were already…in folders and because they were in folders the name of those folders were…placed in the metadata.…So right now if I wanted to search for the word dance, if I click on the upper…right-hand corner in the search folder, I can type the word dance and it will…show me all the clips that have the word dance either in their name or they may…have come from a folder named dance.…
If I wanted to find all the clips that maybe had Pablo in them, I simply type…pablo and now I can find all that footage.…But you don't have to stick to way the clips were labeled when you brought them in.…Just like in Final Cut Pro 7, you can simply click on a clip and you can change its name.…Now you can work either in the Film Strip view and do this or you can switch…
