Editing Interviews Workflow with Multicam
on Feb 4, 2016 at 8:09:36 pm

I'm a sucker for renaming my clips so that I can SEE what the clip is about on the Timeline -- I literally like to see ex. "where he talks about XYZ" on the Timeline when I'm editing.

I've got a bunch of multicam interviews ready to cut and the "rename clip" option isn't available to me.

I'm wondering how people keep tabs on the specific quotes within their interviews for editing? Am I crazy to want to SEE what the clip is about when I'm looking at the timeline?

Transcripts are one way...timecoded transcripts. But then the information is on the script, not the clip. MARKERS on the clip are another way I do it. I'd NEVER name a clip the way you want to. And I don't need the information on the clip name like that. Markers are enough

Thanks, Shane. Any chance I can lure you over to my recent thread: "1 project: 2 sizes and frame rates -- Best solution?" I'd love your input! Thanks :)

match frame back to the component clip, (the one that makes up the multiclip)
and re-name that.

from the timeline, you can match frame (F) into the viewer,
then open item properties (Command 9)
OR
match back to the browser (Shift+F)
and rename there


generally that sort of specific re-naming is the province of markers as Shane mentions, or SUB CLIPS
reason being that there could be manny different subjects within the one interview clip.
but if your system works for you, then try the above

Thanks, Nick.

I'm forcing myself to get to know keywords better! Seems like I just have to get with the program.
