search for clip by name in session view

Post by etanmusic » Mon Mar 21, 2011 3:36 am

has anyone tackled this yet?
is there anyway to attached a search engine to the file management tab?
it's great how you can look through a set's files and jump to all the locations of the file's clips,
but it would be amazing if you could narrow that list down with a search function that looked at clip names, not just file names.
i am new to M4L,
any suggestions on how to make this work??!?
THANKS.

Someone did something like this for track names, but it is the same idea. Iterate through all of the track and scene combinations requesting the name and stop when you find the right one. Helps if you know what track or scene it is on. The tutorials in max are the best starting place and it should be pretty straightforward once you get to grips with the tuts.

I just made a patch to search scene names. You can find it here : http://www.maxforlive.com/library/devic ... e-explorer
When I'll have some time, I'll try to make a version to search clip names...
