OS X Mavericks (10.9) introduced Finder tags, which are like colored file labels on steroids. When importing files into Final Cut Pro X you can create a keyword for each Finder tag on the files you are importing.
Wouldn’t it be great to go the other way, and turn your organized keywords in Final Cut Pro X into a catalog of tags? That’s what FindrCat does!
Three easy steps
1. Run FindrCat.
2. Select an Event of clips (with no “files missing” warnings), then drag to the dock and drop onto the FinderCat icon.
(For Final Cut Pro X versions 10.1 and 10.2, choose File > Export XML…, save the .fcpxml file, then drag-and-drop that onto the FindrCat dock icon or choose File > Open... and navigate to the .fcpxml file.)
3. Use the checkboxes to choose the keywords you want to become Finder tags and click Add Keyword Tags. You’ll get an alert from FindrCat telling you how many keyword tags were added.
And now you have keyword tags on your media files with almost no effort.
Tip: Tags travel with their file when they are copied from one Mac to another
Tagged files are easier to find:
• Open a Finder window and show the Tags area in the sidebar. Click the All Tags… at the bottom and a column shows you all your tags. Select a tag to see every media file tagged with this keyword.
• Or start typing a keyword name into a Finder window’s search box and you’ll be given the option to search for all files with that tag.
• To search Comments using the Finder window’s search box, type “comment:” followed by the text you want to search for.
• To see which tags are on your media files, open a Finder window of your media and choose View > as List. Control-click on a list header and choose Tags from the contextual menu to add a column showing the tags on your files.
Important: Spotlight does not index files stored inside a Library bundle, so searching for tags will only work with external media. Spotlight will not index folders or volumes that have been excluded in Spotlight’s Privacy pane.
To import your files back to Final Cut Pro X, select the media files resulting from your search or filtering in Finder and drag them to the Final Cut Pro X icon. The files will be imported to the currently selected Event. To import the Finder Tags as Keywords, be sure to turn on the checkbox to make keywords From Finder tags. Instant keyword organization in Final Cut Pro X!
