I keep all my clips labeled/color coded in the browser for organizational purposes. But they're a problem in the timeline, because they color tint the thumbnails too, making it very difficult to identify what the clip is (which is the very point of thumbnails).
Is there any way to hide the label colors in the timeline in FCP 7? At least on the clip thumbnails themselves? It's impossible to assess the flow of color in scenes across the timeline when all "good takes" are purple!
Well that's a bummer. Tinting the thumbnails seems a pretty bad idea. It largely defeats the purpose of having thumbnails for easy clip identification. And the flow of color through a film is a key aspect of storytelling... it's unfortunate not to be able to do that in the timeline, without discarding all labels in the browser.
But thank you for your speedy answer! Saved more time.
