Is there a way for FCP X to mark or show the portion of clips that are currently being used in the timeline below?

Thanks

    Afraid not, but it would be worth going to feedback to make a feature request.

    I agree ... that would be a useful feature.  In the meantime, a down and dirty workaround would be to simply create a new event and move those used clips into that event.  All clips in the new event would then represent either the clips that you used in your project and/or the candidates that you had in mind for the project.  You could get realy fancy and move (or copy) your candidate clips for your project into the new event then use the "Favorites" or something similar to put a mark on the clips that actually made it into your project to differentiate them from the ones that did not make it into the timeline.  I know this is not what the Favorites designation was designed for ... and it sounds real hokey ... but if you absolutely must have a way to do this ... that's a very dirty one.

    oops ... I misunderstood your question. Thought you were asking about a way to mark, in the browser,  which clips were used in the timeline.  My mistake ... too much coffee   sorry.
