    Bin Location in the Media Tool

    Essentially a reverse lookup.  You locate a clip in the media tool but you can't use the find bin function because it points back to the media tool.  There is no header for bin in the media tool, so you can't find it that way.  What to do?  Open every bin to find the clip's location.  If there was a header for bin in the media tool the problem is solved.

    Re: Bin Location in the Media Tool

    Where i agree this may be a nifty feature, i have trouble seeing the logistics of how it would report what bin this clip is associated.  remember that clips will show up in at least 2 places.  one is the original bin the clip was captured to, and the other is the sequence bin, if that clip has been cut in. 

    immagine you capture video, copy/duplicate to a bin to sync with audio, then cut that clip into a timeline, make 10 backup copies of the sequence, and so on... how would the media tool report that kind of info?

    i think it may add a layer of confusion.  i'd rather open the media tool, find the clip i need and drag it to whatever bin might be handy for the time being, and leave it at that.
