As we continue our video tutorial series on the new features in Media Composer 6, we thought we’d highlight the new Find Tool (which was technically introduced in Media Composer 5.5). Its powerful metadata searching capabilities will allow you to burrow deep within your bins, scripts and even the text in your Timeline and monitors to find exactly what you’re looking for.
