    Given important TC is to finding a shot I think it could use at least entry improvement.

    Right now the only way to search for a clip based on say Tape and TC is a three term search:
    Tape equals: 123456
    In is less than 1:43:15.12
    Out is greater than 1:43:15.12

    I would suggest a preference that auto formats TC entry for In and Out and Duration fields so one doesn’t have to enter colons and periods.

    Secondly, a “Contains TC” search field so only one TC number need be entered.

    These two features would reduce keystrokes in the above example from 26 to 13.

    Thumbs up or down?

    Thanks Dougal!

    I was hoping for a few “thumbs up” from others to help push it’s priority.

    No one else would welcome easier TC searching?
