You can easily find sound effects or movie files by using the Find feature within the Apple Finder.  Press (command + F) to activate the ‘Find’ window.

The key to finding specific elements is to change the ‘Kind’ menu to a specific file type.  For example, if you are looking for a specific sound effect, you would set the ‘Kind’ menu to music.  Now, only audio files will show up in the search list.

This functionality is awesome when searching for individual sound effects.  For Final Cut Studio users, you already have thousands of sound effects installed on your computer.  Sometimes, it’s much easier to just to do a simple ‘Find’ than having to launch SoundTrack Pro.  You can drag the sound-effects straight from the ‘Find’ window directly into Final Cut Pro.

You can also use this functionality when searching for movie files that are offline.  At GeniusDV we got a lot of questions about ‘offline media’.   You can always re-link your offline clips to their original media.  The only issue is finding them.  The ‘Find’ window is a fantastic way to search across all your hard drives to find your missing media.
