I'd love the ability for a reveal in finder functon for the timeline. So many times I have a ton of clips i'm working with and I forget where things were placed on a massive timeline. Having the ability to right click and press a "find in timeline" to jump directly to where that clip lives on the timeline would be amazing.

If you mean revealing in a timeline from selecting it in the Project Panel this functionality already exists. If you have the Preview Area enabled in the Project Panel settings, selecting a clip will allow you to see it's usage there throughout your entire project, not just the current open sequence. When selecting it in that list the timeline marker will jump to the in point of that clip.

You can also add video and/or audio usage metadata columns in the list view of the Project Panel and use the same functionality there.

In addition to @Shebbe's solution, you can also use Sequence > Reverse Match Frame when you have a clip loaded into Source Monitor. That will show you where in the sequence that exact frame is used. Keep hitting it to cycle between all the matches, in cases where that frame exists in multiple places.

That's a great suggestion. A feature I wasn't even aware of, but I'm more of an online editor. There is a subtle difference though in that Reverse Match Frame requires the frame you're watching in the Source Monitor is actually used in the timeline. And it only cycles if that same frame is used elsewhere in the same timeline right? So this method wouldn't really work if multiple different sections of a single clip is used.

@Shebbe Yep, you're right, that's why we have both methods. Just depends on where you're coming from when you need to reach for it.
