I separated all my subclips into a bin then later found myself looking for the clip a particular subclip was taken from.

Is there an easy way to associate a subclips clip with its origin?

I can click right-click the clip in the PL timeline and it's here:

And right-click it in the Project panel and get the reveal item in both

There is no Properties/Reveal in Explorer option in the context menu of a subclip.

Hi  mikecox_,

As mentioned by MyerPj, you can reveal in explorer. It will take you to the folder where the media is present.

There is one more thing which you can do,

1. select the subclip in Project panel

2. Go to menu option Windows -> Metadata.

3. Expand File Properties in metadata panel.

4. It will show the file name and the file path.

I hope this might help.

Thanks,

Swati

Thank you both for this help, MyerPj was right, after all, I don't know why I didn't get that when I right-clicked; maybe I was in Pr?  Anyway, I like the Metadata option the best because it takes fewer steps.

Thanks again, I appreciate your taking the time to f/u and point these options out.
