Have you ever run into a situation where you can't seem to find a particular clip within an Avid sequence?  Well, you can assign various colors to clips as a nifty way to quickly find cips within an Avid sequence.

To do this: click on the 'text' tab within an Avid bin.  Then navigate to the bin menu and select 'headings'.  Activate the 'color' heading.

After you've assigned colors to individual clips, you can tell Media Composer to display those same colors for matching clips within an Avid sequence.  To do this:  Navigate to the timeline menu and choose:  clip color > source.
