Displaying Filters Bars in the Timeline

Once you’ve added filters to one or more clips, you can choose whether or not to
display filter indicators, or bars, in the Timeline to indicate that the clips have filters
applied to them. Filters bars are green and appear in the space below each video and
audio track in the Timeline for the duration of that clip. If keyframes are added to the
filter of a clip, those keyframes appear on top of the bar to which they apply. Filters
bars can be displayed or hidden at any time. For more information, see “

Keyframe Graph Area

To show or hide filters bars, do one of the following:


Click the Clip Keyframes control in the Timeline.


Choose Sequence > Settings, then click the Timeline Options tab. Select or deselect the
Filters Bar checkbox in the Video column of the Clip Keyframes area.

To open a clip in the Viewer using filters bars:


In the Timeline, double-click a green bar or keyframe to open that clip in the Viewer.
