Step 1: Get started
Navigate to the Event Library. Click on the event that requires organising. If you can’t see the Event Library, select Window>Show Event Library.
Step 2: See it differently
Working with clips in their preview form can be fiddly. It’s easier to assign Keywords while viewing the clips in a list. Click the Show clips in a list icon.
Step 3: The Keyword Editor
There are two ways to open the Keyword Editor. The quickest way is to click the key icon above the Project Library. Alternatively, click Mark>Show Keyword Editor.
Step 4: Choose Keywords
In the Keyword Editor pop-out, use the main field to assign Keywords to the clip. You can use more than one Keyword. Just hit Enter after typing each Keyword.
Step 5: Don’t repeat yourself
You can assign Keyword Shortcuts – applied with a single click. Enter popular Keywords into the numbered fields and click the number to apply them.
Step 6: Apply Keywords to sections
If you’re working with a particularly lengthy clip, you can apply Keywords to individual sections within that clip. Choose a clip from the list to get started.
Step 7: Mark your territory
Above the clip list is a preview of the clip you’ve selected. Click the preview and drag the yellow box to mark the selection you want to apply Keywords to.
Step 8: Assign more Keywords
Open the Keyword Editor. Type new Keywords or use Keyword Shortcuts. Any section of a video clip with an assigned Keyword is marked with a blue line.
Step 9: Remove Keywords
Applied the wrong Keyword? In the Keyword Editor, click on the Keyword and press Backspace, or to delete all Keywords, click Remove All Keywords.
