    Sorting bins by colour

    Hello, this seems like an obvious answer, but I can't find it....

    I want to sort a bin based to see only those clips that are in a timeline.  Mostly for music and SFX.  When I add a clip to a timeline, I change it's colour.  So i want to sift the bin for clips I have (and haven't) used.

    When I choose colour as the range to search, I still need to put text in the 'Text to find' field.  I've been trying to find the names of the colours (is that even the best way to do it?) but no luck.

    Other methods welcome (although I have used rating, which does work, but I use that for something else, and was hoping for a couple of options.....

    As always, thanks in advance.

    Selecting Media Relatives for an Object in a Bin
    When you identify media relatives of a selected clip or sequence, your Avid editing application highlights all other clips linked to the selected clip, such as subclips or other sequences.
    You can also use the Media tool to look at the captured video and audio data files stored on your media drives. For more information on the Media tool, see Using the Media Tool.
    To identify media relatives:
    Open the bin that contains the selected clip or sequence.
    Open any other bins that might contain the media relatives that you want to find.
    Resize and position the bins so that you can see their contents.
    Text view is the best display for viewing as many objects as possible.
    Select the clip or sequence, and select Bin > Select Media Relatives.
    The system highlights all related objects in all open bins.


    Sorting a bin based on clip color is a matter of going into Text view, selecting the Clip Color column and hitting Cmd-E.

    Thanks, didn't know about the media relatives.... does what it says it does, and while it solves my immediate problem, it is not as 'clean' as I had hoped... The cmd-e move works well.... but.... I don't get why there is the sift option for colour, but no way of identifying the colour.... never seen this in any other management system (photography for example)...

    What do you mean there is no way to identify the color?

    When I go into the custom sift options and choose Colour as the column to sift, I need to enter a value in the text field... but I want to use one of the green colours... so what do I put in the text field....
