I added video files to a project timeline, and was later surprised not to find the files listed in the project’s playlist. Searching here, I learned from @sauron that “the playlist can be used as a media pool”, but that "it has many uses."¹ Not sure what else it is used for, but shouldn’t files added to the timeline automatically be added to the playlist too?
Also, it’d be great if when selecting one (or more) files in the playlist, the corresponding clips were highlighted in the timeline. And, conversely, when selecting one (or more) clips in the timeline, the corresponding files in the playlist would also be highlighted. Last time I used Davinci Resolve, it didn’t have that, so I had to resort to colour coding the clips by assining a different colour every time I added a new file to the project. The former would be a much more practical and user-friendly solution.
