Avid Xpress Pro: Modify Source Reel Names in Avid

Chapter: Editing

Topic: Clip and Media Management

A common question from editors is “How can I change the names of the tapes that my assistant logged for me?” Here I will show you how you can change the name of a tape. This is not the same as modifying a clip’s source, I’m referring here to taking an existing source tape and telling the Avid to call it something different. The tape is the same, no timecodes are changed, we’re just changing its name. Shows OS 9 screen shots and may be slightly dated, although the principle will be the same.
