Bin possession

There are times when multiple people might want to open a bin without taking ownership possession of that bin.

As the assistant, I might need to grab a sequence out of a bin, which my editor goes into frequently, but if I have it open and he wants to get into the bin it is locked to him as a user.

The way around it is to hold down the option key on Mac [Alt on PC] while you open the bin from the project window. This will open it for you with a red lock, but it is available for ownership by the other person.

Thanks, great post. I tried it on my Avid and it's great, I never knew about this before. I even shared it with the other assistant on my show.
