Finding Clips

Even the most organized editor can lose track of a clip, particularly when the project contains a lot of clips. Here’s how to find one from the Project window.

To find a clip:

1.
In the Project window, click the find button (Figure 3.73).

Figure 3.73. Clicking the find button opens the Find dialog box.


The Find dialog box appears. It contains two lines of search criteria (Figure 3.74).

Figure 3.74. Select search criteria and content, and click Find.


2.
From the pull-down menu in the top-left corner of the dialog box, choose a category by which to search.

Find options include the same categories as the Project window’s list view.

3.
From the next pull-down menu, choose a limiting option.

4.
In the search field, enter search content.

5.
To narrow the search more, add another search category, limiting option, and search content in the next line.

6.
Click Find.

If a clip meets your criteria, it is selected in the Project window (Figure 3.75). The Find dialog box displays a Find Next button.

Figure 3.75. The first clip Premiere finds that meets your criteria is selected in the Project window. Click Find Next to search for other items that meet the criteria.


7.
To search for other clips that meet the search criteria, click Find Next.

If an additional clip meets your criteria, it is selected in the Project window.

8.
Repeat step 7 until you find the clip you’re searching for or finish searching.

9.
Click Done to close the Find dialog box.
