Chapter 3. Working with Objects > Working with the Media Tab

Working with the Media Tab

The Media tab is another useful tool for organizing the media files in your project. At first glance, it seems similar to the Layers tab, but it works quite differently.

Every time you import a clip or drag it to the Canvas, Layers tab, or Timeline, it appears in the Media tab. The Media tab continues to show a listing of all media files that you have imported into your project, whether or not those files are currently in the Canvas. It provides a great deal of technical information about each of your media files. However, any effects, filters, or masks you have applied to your media files are not reflected in the Media tab; nor are any objects created directly in Motion, like generators or shapes. You can adjust some of the properties listed in the Media tab by using the Inspector.
