One of the newest tricks of Final Cut Pro 7 that I’ve discovered this week is the Reveal Affiliated Clips in Front Sequence command. What’s that all about? Well, this is a great little trick to use if you ever need to find out quickly how many times you’ve used a clip in a sequence, say for color correction for example. Let’s suppose there are 10 different places in your project that you’ve used the same clip, but it needs a bit of color correcting. You don’t want to accidentally forget to fix one of those clips; believe me, someone will notice; so what you can do to make this really simple is select your clip in the Timeline and from the View Menu, choose Reveal Affiliated Clips in Front Sequence.
