I've been tinkering with a small video for an 80th birthday; the idea was to get video or audio greetings from a bunch of relatives, along with some still photos, and make a celebratory presentation.

I noticed that I kept making mistakes and either double-entering, or entirely omitting, some media chunks, and it was difficult to go through the directory contents and correlate about 100 media elements against what was in the timeline.

Is there a way to determine how many times each media element has been used, so I can know which got double-entered, and which are still not in the timeline?

TIA
Simon

In the Timeline menu sequence commands you can make a bin of sources not used.

Nice, thank you! I'll give that a go.

Perhaps too late, but maybe helpful in the future?

If you have many sequences in your project and wish to reveal unused clips all at once, instead of sequence by sequence, make a sequence of all sequences *** first, and execute 'Make.Bin of sources not used' afterwards. That works even when executing the command on the newly created tile.

Edit: *** To be clear: To make a sequence of all sequences, use 'Make.Sequence from selection'.
It's better to travel well than to arrive...
