    Any way to search for a sequence in AVID?

    My editor may have saved his sequence into a random bin. Is there any way to search within a project or drive for a sequence name?

     

    Thanks!

    If you know the name of the Seq you can hit CTRL+F to bring up the Find command, (make sure you're on the Clips and Sequences tab) enter the Seq name and it will search across all Bins and show you which bin the Seq lives in.

    Thank you for the response. Where is the 'Clips and Sequences' tab you mention. Within the Find tool? The problem is that the find... option is always unavailable unless I reference a specific sequence.

     

    Which Avid version are you on? I am on both 4.0 and 5.0 both wont let me access the find tool unless I am in a sequence. And there are no tabs in that find window...

    I'm on v5.5 and with all Bins closed I can hit CMD+F and it brings up:

    sorry, but it doesn't work in mc4 and 5, only in 5.5 and later - this new find_indexer was introduced.
