Cooliris is a new option for browsing images and video. After downloading Cooliris it embeds a button onto your browser that launches Cooliris. Once in Cooliris you are able to view the media in a much more interactive format.

Cooliris has a 3D wall that allows you to zoom in and out, or move up and down the wall. You are also able to isolate individual images or video. Cooliris even works on your internal drive, so you can navigate to a folder of pictures on your computer, and it will display them the Cooliris way. This is a great way to take a quick look at 100's of files for use in applications like Final Cut, Motion, Photoshop, and After Effects



This is a very exciting application, I highly advise you to give it a try.


Here is one of those fun discoveries of a new feature in Final Cut Pro that I didn't know about. In Final Cut 7 there is a new feature called Reveal Affiliated Clips in Front Sequence. It is basically the opposite of Reveal Master Clip (shift +F). Where as Reveal Master Clip highlights the location of a clip in the File Browser from the Timeline, Reveal Affiliated Clips in Front  Sequence highlights the location of a clip in the Timeline, by right-clicking a clip in the File Browser, and choosing Reveal Affiliated Clips in Front Sequence.   I know there have been times that I gave a clip in the File Browser a color label to see it in the Timeline. This is a much more effective process.

Be sure not to confuse either one of these functions with Match Frame, which can be on of the most powerful editing tools of them all.
