Setting a Logging Bin to Store Logged Clips

When you log clips, you need to specify a logging bin where the clips are stored in your project. By default, the project itself is considered to be the logging bin, but you can create a new bin or assign any bin in your project as the logging bin.

You create and set the logging bin in the Logging tab of the Log and Capture window or in the Browser. A slate icon appears next to the bin in the Browser to indicate that it is the current logging bin.

To create and set a new logging bin in the Log and Capture window
  • In the Logging tab, click the New Bin button.

To set an existing bin in the Browser as the current logging bin
  • In the Browser, select the bin you want to use as your logging bin and do one of the following:

    • Choose File > Set Logging Bin.

    • Control-click the bin, then choose Set Logging Bin from the shortcut menu.

As you log your clips, you may want to check to see how many you have or view their names.

To open the logging bin
Do one of the following:
  • In the Log and Capture window, click the Logging tab, then click the Log Bin button.

  • In the Browser, double-click the logging bin.

  • In the Browser, click the disclosure triangle next to the logging bin.
