Seperate Work Segment Clip Bin so you can focus on those photos/videos/audio for a specific section of timeline in the creative process.

IDEA: I would like a seperate Camtasia WORK CLIP BIN: If I have a huge clip bin, and I want to add some photos, for a certain segment and they get LOST in the main clip bin. I would like to be able to import some photos for the next segment in my timeline and just see them in this smaller work clip bin, with option when done ADD WORK CLIP BIN TO MAIN CLIP BIN. It would be a big time saver not scrolling through huge clip bin finding photos and would help produce better artistic projects. Keep up the great work.

In most programs you can simply create and name folders.
You can also add create sub-folders within these other folders.

That keeps things orderly and separated nicely. Piece of cake.

If Camtasia adopted a folder structure for the clip bin would that work for you?

If your willing to  jump through hoops you can use the Library.To me, the library approach is cumbersome and an updated clip bin makes much more sense.

I personally like the separation of the clip bin and the library.  I use the library for those items I will use constantly for my projects or separate folders for my clients projects.  For the Library, I would like to see the thumbnails return and the ability to add a subfolder structure as Joe mentioned.  What I would like to see for the clip bin is what we had in Camtasia 8, where all images were lumped together in one section of the bin, all audio lumped together in another section, and all videos lumped together in another section.  The clip bin is nice as it holds only what is in the project I am currently working on (large thumbnail, easy to see and know what is what).  It would simply be nice if it was divided out by asset types.
