I just shot 10 shots of footage. Now I need to set through all of it and decide what parts of each clip is of interest. What is the recommended workflow to go through and select multiple clips from the same file or additional files? In my case, I took several shots under water and am trying to figure out a way to mark them so I can figure out what I have that's good. Then I want to combine them into a single timeline. What is your workflow?

Use the sub-clipping feature. Set the in and out points in a clip in the Source window. Choose menu item Clip then Make SubClip from the drop down. Add a name for your new clip. Click OK. You can make as many sub clips as you like from one single clip. You can also use the color labels to help sort the sub clips by subject or good/bad.

Hi Joe,

Been working with making sub clips. What I've been doing is making a sub clip of the entire clip in pieces so I know what's in each piece. When I name the file, I've been keeping part of the original name (the original name of the clip) and deleting the rest of the name and replace it with "-001 Short Description". This way, I know which part came from where in the clip order with the -001, -002 etc and the description tells me what's in that clip.

Do you have another approach to this?

What I'm having trouble with is, after I have all the sub-clips made, I want to label them in a color or star rating so I can tell the useful from the useless. Unfortunately, Adobe does not separate the clip from the original file with regard to color coding, labeling or star rating (shame on you Adobe) what were they thinking? If I have a piece of footage called "GOPRO1234.mp4 and I make a sub-clip from it called "GOPRO1234-001 Swimmer" when I label, star rate or color code the sub-clip, it does the same thing to the footage it came from. That means if I have four sub-clips and I star rate any of them, all of them, including the footage they came from get the same star rating applied.

Do you have any better ideas on this?

Usually, my subclips are the takes I want to keep, so I have not tried to label them separately. My next step, in your situation, would be to export and re-import the subclips so they would all be individual files.

Hmm, sound like a good approach depending on the project. Guess I'll just use the Comment metadata field so I don't have to make more data. That field seems to stay independent.

Thanks again.

Smart work-around. I'll have to try that some time.
