- Little details will stick with you…more so than a generic term.…For example, you might forget the name…of someone you met at a party,…but remember that she was called snookums…when she was a child.…Snookums may not be a good name for a clip,…but you'll never forget that little detail.…And if you were smart enough to add it…as a note to that clip's meta data,…then finding Snookums when you need her will be a cinch.…Final Cut Pro has a great search mechanism.…Simply click the magnifying glass in the search field,…and it brings up the search filter.…The default is text.…
If we wanted to find the clip…that you entered the note "love" to, Paul's clip,…simply type the word "love" and notice…that Paul's clip appears in the Event Browser.…If creating a group of clips around the concept…of loving the coffee, loving the family,…loving what people are doing, appeals to you,…then go ahead and create a New Smart Collection.…Notice that in the Event Library,…a Smart Collection is created.…Let's just call this "love".…
So far, we only have one clip in this Smart Collection.…
