You can display detailed information about clips in the schematic such as resolution, frame rate, and size. As well, visual cues such as symbols and letters identify clips as having had a specific type of operation applied.
The colour of the clip information and letters and symbols also provides specific information.
To display clip information:
- In Batch, click Setup.
- Select one of the following from the Clip Info box.
|Select: ||To display: |
|Resolution ||The clip's name, number of frames, dimension, frame depth, and aspect ratio. |
|Size ||The clip's name, number of frames, and dimension (in pixels). |
|Framerate ||The clip's name, number of frames, and number of frames per second (fps). |
|Size+Rate ||The clip's name, number of frames, dimension (in pixels), and number of frames per second (fps). |
|Resolution+Rate ||The clip's name, number of frames, dimension, frame depth, aspect ratio, and number of frames per second (fps). This option provides the most detailed level of clip information. |
|No Info ||No information except the clip name and number of frames. |
The clip information displayed in the schematic is updated according to your selection. The colour of the clip name locates the clip.
- White clip name: the clip was loaded from the Desktop.
- Blue clip name: the clip was loaded from the library.
- Pink clip name: the clip was loaded using a Gateway Import node.
(a) Clip name (from library) (b) Frames per second (c) Size (d) Clip name (from Desktop) (e) Number of frames (f) Aspect ratio (g) Frame bit depth
The clip is loaded as a black proxy and the clip name is red in the following cases.
- Batch cannot find the clip associated with the Batch setup you previously saved.
- The clip is imported with a Gateway Import node and there is no media for the currently selected frame.
(a) Clip associated with saved setup cannot be found
For more information on saving setups and clips, see Managing Clips in Batch.
The following visual cues can help you track the type of clip and clip status.
(a) Audio Context outline (b) Context outline (c) (A) symbol (d) LUT symbol (e) (C) symbol (f) BFX symbol (of single segment) (g) [E] symbol (h) Clip history symbol (with names of processes applied)
- (A) symbol and Audio Context outline
Indicates that an audio context is set for this clip or node. In addition to the A, the clip has a dotted purple outline. The letter A is followed by the number of the context, for example, A2 is the second Audio context. See Working with Audio Contexts
- (C) symbol and Context outline
Indicates that a context is set for this clip or node. In addition to the C, the clip has a dotted green outline. The letter C is followed by the number of the context, for example, C1 is the first video context. See Viewing Nodes in Context
- LUT symbol
Indicates that a LUT was applied to the clip. The first and second number represent the source and destination bit depths, respectively. See Accessing the LUT Editor in Batch
- [R] symbol
- (BFX) symbol
Indicates that a Batch FX was applied to a timeline made up of one segment. The clip can be expanded. See Expanding Batch FX
- (bfx) symbol
Indicates that a Batch FX was applied to a timeline made up of multiple segments. You cannot expand Batch setups of clips containing more than one segment. See Expanding Batch FX
- [E] symbol
Indicates that the clip was edited in the Batch timeline.
- (H) symbol
Indicates that the clip has an effect or process applied to it. The clip's history can be expanded into a process tree and edited. See Clip History
- (h) symbol
Indicates that a clip with history has been edited or has had a soft effect applied. The clip history of this soft clip cannot be expanded. See Clip History
