Join Jeff I. Greenberg for an in-depth discussion in this video Using keywords to separate sync clips, part of Final Cut Pro X Guru: Sync Sound Workflow.
- So the first big step in being organized…in Final Cut X of course is using keywords.…Keywords really allow you to sit back…and put one thing in multiple locations.…It's way more flexible than a bin lifestyle is.…So to do so here, I'm going to go ahead…and keywords to some of my synchronized clips.…I've got a couple listed here.…I'm just going to take three of these clips,…and I'm going to say I'd like to add a new keyword.…And I can do it one of two ways.…I can do it this way, where I say…Show or Hide the Keyword Editor.…And I'll add something like Synced.…
And you'll now see that I have at the bottom,…a brand new keyword list that's got all those synced clips.…We don't have to do this manually.…We can come up and just say New, Keyword Collection.…That's a shift command k,…and I'll call this Also Synced.…Or maybe let's do something like, Audio only.…When I come back to my full project,…I'll just go ahead here and have Final Cut X…group them by File Type.…
I'll take all of my audio clips…and put them in their own keyword collection.…
