So all that being said, you may end up with a project window that looks something like this.

Notice how I have a list of five different bins.

If you double click on a bin, the bin icon will become transparent, and the bin will open.

Each time I click on a bin, a new bin window opens.

Now, the Media Composer interface can quickly become cluttered if you have too many bins open at the same time.

Note that each bin has a tab in the upper left corner.  

You can drag a bin tab into the top of another bin.

This essentially attaches multiple bins together.

Then you can click through the individual bin tabs to access your content.

You can also click on this bin pull down menu in the upper right corner to select a specific bin.

If you need to detach a bin, just drag the bin tab outside of the tabbed window.

Then, if necessary you can re-attach it.

Now, be careful when working with multi-bin windows.

If you close the window, it will close all the attached bins contained within it.

And finally, check out this tick

If you select all your bins within the project window, and right click on them, choose open selected bins in one window.

Avid Media Composer will automatically attach them all together for you.

Okay, so now you should have the basics on how tabbed bin windows work.

And don’t forget GeniusDV also offers classroom and flat rate onsite Avid Media Composer Training.
