Changing Names of Labels

If you need label names that are different from the defaults, you can change them in
the User Preferences window. For example, some projects may not have any interview
footage, so you could change the default “Interview” label to a more appropriate
category, such as “Special Effects,” “Needs Color Correction,” or “Temporary Footage.”

Keep in mind that labels usually represent fairly broad categories, since there are only
five to choose from. You can always use log notes, comments, and the Label 2 property
to further refine the descriptions and categorization of your clips.

To change the label names:


Choose Edit > User Preferences, then click the Labels tab.


Click a text field to highlight it, then enter a new name for the label.


When you’ve finished, click OK or press Return.
