    I have been trying to find a comparison between KeyClips and Shot Notes X, but have not had much success. I have used Movie*Slate on a few shoots and I noticed they added KeyClips as a free add-on. I recently watched an LACPUG presentation of a work flow that used Shot Notes X and Sync-N-Link with Final Cut Pro X that very efficient. Has any one on here used both? Can anyone explain the differences (and/or similarities) to help me decide if I need Shot Notes X or if it is replaced by Key Clips?

    Thanks in advance!

    Shot Notes is a lot more basic compared to KeyClips- it’s pretty much designed to transfer a script supervisors paper notes to FCPX. KeyClips is meant to be used with a slate to automate the job of script supervising.

    So if I have (and use) Movie*Slate for logging, I do not need Shot Notes X? Can it integrate with Sync-N-Link?

    Noah –
    Thanks for the information. I am not clear if you meant that one would not need Sync-N-Link if one used Key Clips or if you meant that Sync-N-Link is not compatible with Key Clips?
