Logging Tab in the Log and Capture Window

Use this tab to add descriptive information to each clip that you log, such as reel name, In and Out points, scene/take number, markers, and so on. Much of this information can also be added later in the Browser. For more information, see Logging a Clip.

Logging Bin Controls

The Logging Bin controls have the following buttons.

Figure. Log and Capture window showing the Logging Bin controls.
  • Log Bin: This button displays the name of the bin in your project where logged clips will be placed. There can be only one logging bin at a time, no matter how many projects are open. When you click this button, the bin opens in its own window; if the bin is already open, the bin’s window comes to the front.
  • Up: Click to move the logging bin up a level from the currently selected one. For example, you could switch from a bin to the bin that contains it. If the current logging bin is at the highest level, clicking this button assigns the project itself as the logging bin.
  • New Bin: Click this button to create a new bin inside of the currently selected bin, and set it as the logging bin.
