Avid Xpress Pro / Media Composer Timeline Info Part 2

Fuul%20of%20offline.gif

Often you need to know a few things about the clips that are in your timeline. This is often overlooked but a very powerful way to get quick information about the clips that reside in your
timeline. Well, once again I want to share with you another very useful and powerful tool that you should turn on in your timeline fast menu. It is called clip color in your Avid timeline menu and there are four options to choose from under this heading. The one I want to call your attention to is the Offline setting
.

When you select the Offline option all of the clips in your timeline will be colored red. This is very important to know before you begin editing. This will allow you to become aware of the clips that are missing due to either deleted media, hard drives that are not on or a corrupt file. I make sure this is always on and it not only will save you time when you go to export but it will save the dreaded media offline clip in your final output!
