    Great new post on Oliver’s blog, deep diving into Simon’s recent Bricklayers and Sculptors thread. Thanks for posting Oliver, and thanks Simon for giving us an in-depth look at how you organize and edit.

    This is one way to do it. To each his or her own.

    [Brian Seegmiller] ” To each his or her own”

    Remember, it’s about the process, not the software application.

    I think this thread and the originating thread might be very helpful to other editors out there.

    Bins don’t really exist in many people’s editing worlds. Personally, I make stringouts of all of my material to start and then use those stringouts to do all searches. It’s a very efficient system overall and it eliminates the need to organize or tag material.

    I think that’s been Simon’s point all along.

    Using the skimmer in the Browser in FCPX is exactly the same as having a stringout of ALL your material. I rarely tag or organise material in FCPX as it’s so quick to access all of the rushes

    I don’t believe that Simon would agree with you based on his arguments. I too feel that stringouts are faster. I would add that X’s magnetic timeline actually plays well using stringouts.

    Was it? I seem to remember a post by Simone that was all about organizing through one smart collection. So now no, organizing ?

    I don’t think that was necessarily related to editing style. More about making the events/bins/collections go away completely, but still using FCPX’s strengths to find things. For reference, here are the links:

    Agreed. I think this is because timeline string outs have an added benefit of spatial information that isn’t available in the browser. I still wish FCPX would allow multiple primaries.
