Clip names and effects

When I add more than one effect to a clip; the clip name no longer shows and only the name of the effect shows. Is there a way to have it not do this?

Can you give some more details? From what you're describing, it sounds like a bug. That definitely should not be happening.

When you say that you're adding more than one clip, you're dragging and dropping the effect holding the OPTION key, right?

Yes. Dragging an effect and then option dragging another effect. Clip name changes to "3D warp"

Unfortunately, as far as I know, that's just part of Avid. I've never seen it act differently.

I can see how it'd be pain in some situations.

Can anyone confirm if this is just part of Avid? That would be a nice thing to toggle on/off.

That's what I feared. It makes it hard to ID clips in the timeline for the archivist.

I had this at one stage during the beta testing of V6 but can't remember the cause.I'd suggest creating a new user setting first.
Then check timeline settings clip text.
If no joy try a new project and copy the bin into it.

Is the archivist going through the timeline clip by clip, or are they using one of the reporting methods out of a MC timecode such as EDL, XM, TAB, etc. and working from that? In those cases, the clip persists as needed. But knowing exactly how the archivist wants to work would probably lead to one solution over another.

Or copy the sequence to an empty bin and turn on show reference clips.
