    Best way to locate a clip's bin location from timeline? Or..?

    Hi All-

    I'm trying to search for a clip who's audio is missing so I can re-add it to the timeline.  We have multiple bins over a huge project with multiple editors.  I did some googling and found this thread which indicates it is a "longstanding feature requests"... the thread is from 2005.  I'm hoping in 13 years they've been able to add it?

    Barring that... is there a way to locate a clips location in the bins by right clicking it on the timeline?

    In the timeline, park the blue bar on the clip you want to locate.

    Open the Command Palatte from the Tools dropdown menu.

    Click "Active Palette"

    Select the "other" category.

    Press "Match Frame".

    Press "Find Bin".

    I use this feature so frequently that I have the Match Frame button mapped to the timeline and the Find Bin button mapped to a button on the source side.

    There's a way to do this in one:

    Put a 'Find Bin' button onto your timeline window.

    Put your play head on the clip you want to trace, make sure the right track is selected, press alt (or the mac equivalent) and hit that button - voila. No need to preload into your source.
