Did you know it's possible to add clip comments directly to clips within the Avid Timeline?  This is important for a few reasons.

comments_within_avid_clip.gif#1 The comments will stay embedded within the clip, so if you move the clip, the comments will stay with it.

#2 If you edit a title directly from the timeline, the clip name doesn't change.  You can add a clip comment to reflect the real-name of the title template, instead of having to deal with a generic name.

 

 

To add comments to clips within Avid Xpress or Avid Media Composer follow these steps:

 

Highlight one or more of your clips within the Avid timeline using segment mode.  In this case, I've turned on the red segment arrow to select a clip.

Next, navivate to the pull-down menu in the upper right corner of the Composer Window.  Choose add clip comments.

A clip comment dialog box will appear.  Go ahead and type your comment.

To get the comments to appear in the actual Avid timeline, you need to turn them on using the timeline-fast menu  which is located in the bottom left corner of the timeline window.
