We're really getting in to different ways to organize our media now. And I want to dig into the one called Labels, which is basically color coding. We've actually seen this a little bit already in the Preferences. Where you saw that all of the color coded labels can be customized. Now let's see how we apply labels, and use them to organize in the project panel. I'm back in our project, and specifically our Project panel which I've enlarged, so we can get a close look. And I want to focus on the column labels.
In order to change the label of any clip, you simply right click on the Label. Go to Label and select any color you want it to be. As we saw, all of these can be reprogrammed, so if you don't want colors, you could actually be selecting types of footage or anything that's meaningful for you, in the organization. But I change the color or the label by clicking there. Now you can see, it's Violet. Some people really like color coding because, unlike numbers and descriptions, it's visual.
Labels can be pretty powerful, and I'll show you one more trick in the next movie.
