Find multiple clip names in a bin based on a list. You can use multi-find to search an "All VFX" bin for the specific versions being turned over to the DI/online as final.
|Return-delimited list of clip names to find
- Click the actions button
- Click multi-find
- Fill out the form (see parameters above)
- Click find
- If matching data is detected, MATCH FOUND will appear next to the shot id. Otherwise, MISSING will be displayed.
All clips from the pasted list will be reported as either a match or not as compared to the imported clip data.
- Multi-find performs an exact match search on the data, so if your clip names include ".mov", then the pasted list of clips must also contain ".mov" at the end of each.
- The clipboard button copies the list of missing clip names to your computer's clipboard so that you can paste them into an email or other document.
- Export the list of matched clips as an Avid ALE file. Optionally, add metadata like a date or unique identifier to a specific bin column. There are two ways to import the ALE back into Avid:
- If you Merge events with known master clips, the new metadata will merge with the original clips, and then you can search the bin for that identifying information to narrow them down.
- If you Merge events with known sources and automatically create subclips, any new metadata will only merge with those new subclips, but you can move them into a bin that has Show reference clips checked, which will reveal the master clips.
