Avid Xpress Pro / Media Compser Timeline Information

Timeline%20fast%20menu.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.

There are quite a few different options under your Avid timeline fast menu so I thought we would start with specific clip information. For my personal workflow I always run with clip name, clip duration and clip resolution. The other options I rarely use and I never run with the clip frame turned on. Of course this is my person preference and you may find the others useful to you. Here is a quick rundown of what each one does for you and the information it will display:

1.Clip Frames: Displays the first frame within a clip in the Timeline.

2.Clip Names: Switches on and off the display of clip names in the Timeline.

3.Clip Durations: Switches on and off the display of clip durations in the Timeline.

4.Clip Comments: Switches on and off the display of clip comments in the Timeline.

5.Source Names: Switches on and off the display of source material names in the Timeline.

6.Media Names: Switches on and off the display of original media file names in the Timeline.

7.Clip Resolutions: Switches on and off the display of the video and audio resolutions of each clip in the Timeline.
