Renaming Clips

After you import a file as a clip, you shouldn’t rename the file on your hard disk. Doing so will ruin your project’s reference to the file, and Premiere won’t be able to locate the file the next time you open the project. Nevertheless, you may still need to identify a clip by another name. Fortunately, you can rename a clip in a project, giving it a name alias for the purposes of editing. Renaming the clip doesn’t affect the source file’s name or interfere with your project’s references. You can restore the original name at any time.

To rename a clip:

1.
Select a clip.

2.
Choose Clip > Set Clip Name Alias, or press - (Mac) or - (Windows) (Figure 3.69).

Figure 3.69. Choose Clip > Set Clip Name Alias.


The Set Clip Name Alias dialog box appears.

3.
Enter a new name (Figure 3.70).

Figure 3.70. In the Set Clip Name Alias dialog box, enter a new name, and click OK to rename the clip.


4.
Click OK.

The clip takes another name in the project. The source file on the drive isn’t renamed, however (Figure 3.71).

Figure 3.71. The clip uses a new name in the project, but the source file remains unchanged.
