    Look into smart collections. I believe you can do that with them, where you only show used footage. Smart collections are basically dynamic filters, so as you add footage to your timeline it will update with those clips. If you remove a clip from the timeline it will no longer be shown in the smart collection.

    Here’s a great overview of smart collections:

    [Scott Witthaus] “But the cash rolled in…and a bit of your soul died.”

    Truer words have never been spoken!

    I used to enjoy political work, but over the years it’s gotten so nasty that I’m glad to be out of it. I’m glad I did (some) of it, though. It taught me to be fast, efficient, and how to leave my opinion at the door and keep my mouth shut!

    [Bob Zelin] “Once this becomes a reality for all of us – then remote editing will become more of a reality. 900 Mb/sec is not 10G speeds – but it is 10 times better than what we can get here in Florida !”

    There’s hope for Florida Bob! When I was living in Jacksonville, AT&T ran fiber through my neighborhood and I had the option of 1GB up/1GB down for about $90 a month, which was what Comcast was charging for 100Mbps down/10 up. Comcast had 1Gb down/up for businesses, but I think they were charging $900/month, which is ridiculous.

    If Jacksonville can get fiber, I’m sure Orlando and the rest of the state will eventually.

    Been a while since I’ve been on FCPX, but can you select all the gaps and lift them to a secondary storyline, then copy/paste the secondary storylines (Gaps and titles)? After you paste, select the secondary storyline with the gaps and collapse it into the primary storyline. See if that preserves the gaps for you.

    If it doesn’t and there’s not other workaround, start using a still of black instead of a gap. You can use a Generator to make one that can be trimmed to any length. Set the opacity to 0 if you need it to be transparent.

    Abbreviated to BAAA. Fits with the COW/Pasture theme!

    You could create a new library (maybe call it TEMPLATE or SHARED ASSETS or something) and copy all your compound clips into there, as well as your lower thirds. You could paste them into a sequence in that library. Then, when you start a new library for a project and need those elements, you just open the TEMPLATE library and copy them over. Would that work?

    Why in the world would a camera operator do that!?!?! That’s the biggest mystery of all.

    Glad you got it sorted out, and I’ve been stung by the lack of DNxHR support in FCPX. Even as an .mov, it doesn’t support alpha channels. So the support isn’t 100%. Hopefully that is fixed at some point in the future.

    Yes! I’ve actually feature requested this a couple of times over the years. I started using FCPX after they had switched to the library, so I didn’t know you used to be able to do that.

    D’oh! Yeah, LightWorks. A couple of us in the office were just talking about 3D programs and Lightwave came up.

    Here’s an interview with her – LightWorks is mentioned as her NLE. https://postperspective.com/the-irishman-editor-thelma-schoonmaker/
