Asset Library - search/filter/flag function

I find it difficult to filter and search in the assets library. Also wish there was a way to mark something as a "favorite." I don't want to download things I *might* use, but it's time consuming to go back through all of them to find an asset again. I'd like to be able to mark a favorite so I can quickly find it for future videos. I also wish there was a filter function, say to filter songs by length, or motion backgrounds by primary color.

Thanks nicole, for your feedback. Filtering is definitely a feature we are looking into right now. Would you mind giving a few examples of what types of filters you would find most useful? It helps us focus on delivering the most valuable stuff first.

For sound, it would be really helpful if you could filter by song length. I think for being able to exclude items from your search, for example, in motion backgrounds, exclude say, technology.  I don't always know exactly what I'm looking for, but I know what I'm not looking for, so being able to exclude things to narrow down the list to sort through faster would be really helpful. Also, the ability to mark things as favorites, then you can just filter to your favorites list would be great!

I have this as an issue as well.  Having made a video for Facebook & Twitter, I have to completely re-do it for IGTV to Instagram (which requires Portrait).  The video's dont work. 

Therefore a filter of Widescreen, Portrait, Square or a combination would save hunting through thousands just to find the right type of orientation.
