Soft-imported clips in the clip library display an icon in the lower-right corner of the clip. The type of indicator depends on whether the clip is a hybrid clip or a completely soft-imported clip. A hybrid clip has some frames that are soft-imported and some that are not, or it may consist of multiple soft-imported sources of different formats.
(a) Indicates a clip with managed media but without clip history (b) Indicates a clip with unmanaged media of mixed formats (c) Indicates a clip with unmanaged media (d) Indicates a clip with managed media and import history
|Lower-Right indicator:||Type of clip:||Import history:|
|None||A clip with managed media, without clip history. The clip can be a result from a processing, a Smoke-generated clip (Create Colour Source) or imported through the Import Image menu. (See ).||No import history|
|SOFT||The clip contains unmanaged media from multiple sources. The source clips were imported using the Import Image menu or from a Gateway library.||Import history available if imported from a Gateway library.|
|Light-grey format||The clip contains unmanaged media of the type specified by the light-grey indicator. The source clip was imported through the Import Image menu or from a Gateway library.||Import history available if imported from a Gateway library.|

A clip with un managed media that can no longer connect to its source file appear as white and grey checkered clips. This can happen if the Smoke workstation loses its network connection to the storage where the media is located. Reconnecting the application to that storage can solve this issue.
