It's More Than Just a Name

One thing I don't see many editors take advantage of is all the useful information available within each clip. The Project Window Options, shown in Figure 1.19, allow you to customize the information that appears for each clip in the bin. You can select from the various options to display any or all of these statistics using your bin's list view display, as shown in Figure 1.20. This is why you'll find more top-end editors working in list view. These statistics help you manage your project by identifying and sorting each clip. Here are some statistics that can really save you time while working on a project:

  • Viewing timecode information to identify similarly named clips

  • Checking a clip's duration

  • Checking the file size and other characteristics

  • Entering comments about each clip

  • Checking the number of times a clip has been used in your sequence

  • Displaying the file location (path) on the storage device

  • Displaying the source tape or reel name
