I am using CS4. I would like to make subclips of clips and tag each with a metadata description so that they can be saved in an independent library and retrieved by a filter search later. Is there a better way to do this? Can I save these subclips to catch-all library that isn't tied to a project? Thanks
You would have to render out the subclips individually. Our subclip workflow isn't particularly elegant at this point in time, but we're looking at it.
Definitely check out CatDV from Squarebox. It's a pretty amazing cataloging product, particularly for the price. Depending on your needs, you could probably get away with the Standard edition, which is less than $100.
