Different people like to log their video in different ways, so there's are lots of ways of describing clips and associating text with timecode in CatDV, depending on what you're trying to do:

  • you can have multiline, free format text in the Notes field. If you use the Verbatim Logger and 'save as text' then you can use this to store a transcript against a clip (including timecode stored within the text)

  • you can create subclips and give each one a new name. You can use the verbatim logger for this (using a hot key to insert 'new subclip' markers while the video is playing) or do it by setting in and out points and using the New Subclip command.

  • you can create timecode event markers within a clip. These appear within the movie controller and work like chapter markers, and are also listed in the Event Markers table.

  • You can convert between these forms fairly easily, and also use features such as automatic scene detection or import and export the log notes to your editing app.

    To view the log notes alongside the movie while it's playing, use the Clip Details panel. This is normally docked to the main window but you can also have it as a separate window. Display the movie on the left and choose (or configure) a tab on the right that shows the Notes or Event Markers table as required.
