Before whenever I imported videos on my timeline, there would be an orange bar in my event browser indicating I've used that portion of the clip. In the new 10.0.6 version, I don't see this. Is there some kind of setting I have to turn on, or was I imagining it this whole time and this never existed?

FCP X is a complete re-write of the software, many and most features that everyday professional editors use when video editing are no longer available in FCP X, this feature was not included.


Also this only works on true Time-based cameras, a 5D or 7D will not produce this feature even in FCP 7
