    How to multi select non contiguous clips on timeline

    Just as topic asked, I want to know, how to slect multi clips, such as hundred clips on timeline.

    But non contiguous, and all of them have somthing in common, maybe include same word in the clip name?

    We can do quick search, but I want to select all of them after search like FCP7 does.

    If Avid can do that or not? Much thanks.

    There are a variety of MC tools that may apply, but I’m curious: do you have a particular FCP workflow in mind? In FCP, (which I know ZERO about), what part of your editing process was helped by the search/selecting of clip names that are already on a timeline? Is the need related to clip deletion, movement or perhaps adding color correction, other FX....or is it anything else?

    Re: How to multi select non contiguous clips on timeline

    Can You clarify? Do You want to select multiple clips in the timeline or the clips in the bin(s) realated to a given timeline?

    Re: How to multi select non contiguous clips on timeline

    In FCP 7, we can cmd+F to popup find pallete, and we can type in some keyword of all the clps that contain the same keyword. Such as, "Avid" to find out all the clips contain "Avid" in my timeline and these clips are all selected at same time. Then I can do copy or delete or move all thses clips up or down.

     

    But Avid's find pallete only did find and jump to the edit point. I wanna to know if Avid has the same command or not? Thanks

    You can search or sift a bin for a keyword, and You can perform this in the Media Tool, which holds all of the clips belonging to the project (and more, be careful!).

    Thanks for posting your YouTube. I agree, THAT is a very good feature, whether it is built into the MC FIND tool (Find & Select”), or available from ANY open bin, including Media Tool, ( Mirror Selected Clips from Bin to Timeline, or as a Right-Click Option from Highlighting a single clip on timeline)

    I’m on v885 and it does have a fairly new Timeline Right_Click Menu tool called SELECT, which is a step in the right direction, in terms of automating multiple timeline clip highlight/selections based on Color attributes of various kinds.

    My hunch is that FCP innovations like that can be traced back to early MC pioneers, like Steve Bayes.

    Re: How to multi select non contiguous clips on timeline

    I see, useful feature, especially handy for someone accostumed to use it! Seriously speaking, forgive me for not catching up at first. There's no way that I know of to achieve that in MC, You may want to ask for a 'find and select' command over the features request forum. Don't know if such a feature is an Apple patent and can be ported to Avid though.

    That's OK.

    I need to do something in Avid style.

    Re: How to multi select non contiguous clips on timeline

    In Avid v8.6, they added a number of new timeline select menu's. see page 13 of this document...

    http://resources.avid.com/SupportFiles/attach/WhatsNew_MediaComposer_v8.6.pdf

    I haven't tested this, but I don't see why you couldn't do the following...

    1/ Enable reference clips in bin

    2/ Colour the refernece clips that you want to multi-select the same colour

    3/ Use the 'Select > Clips with Same Source Clip Colour' option in the readme that I have linked.

    I know that it isn't as straight forward as the FCP7/Premiere method but it is only a few extra clicks.

    I would be interested to know what you think of this. Thanks.
