Recapping How to Show Used Clips in Premiere Pro

Open up the bin who’s clips you want to see if they’ve been used. In order to do this, first change the bin to icon view. If there’s a gray icon or no icon in the lower right corner of the clip it has not been used. If there’s a blue icon then the clip has been used.
