Coloring your clips in Avid Express Pro

colors.gif

Assigning a color to you clips is a very useful tool. I have found this to be especially helpful when there is a clip in my timeline that I have maybe cut into two or more pieces. If you want to move this clip in your timeline and keep all of the pieces together if they are the same color it makes it very easy to identify. This is only one reason to color you clips another might be you want to keep certain clips together by there color, for example: all of your outdoor midday clips you want one color and all of the evening shot another. Here is a how to color you clips:

1.Make sure you are in text view in your bin.

2.Click on the fast menu in the lower left corner and click on headings.

3.Under headings you will see color as a heading option, click color and then OK and the bottom.

4.Now you will have a color heading in you text view that you can modify by hovering in that column and clicking once and opening the color dialogue box.

5.You can choose the few preset colors or any color from the color palette by choosing pick at the bottom.

Don’t forget to save this color text view so you can access it form any project and you thought you left the Crayolas behind in elementary school!
