Rate clips as Favorite or Rejected
If your clips contain sections that you don’t like or that you might never want to use in a project—because they’re blurry, for example—you can mark them as Rejected. You can easily rate the clips you like and the clips you don’t like as you review them. When you’re ready to make a project or play your clip for your client, you can focus on your best footage by choosing to display only those clips you marked as Favorite. You can also delete your rejected clips’ source media files to free up space on your hard disk.
Do one of the following:
If you like the selection: Press the F key or click the Favorite button in the toolbar.
In the Browser, a green line appears at the top of frames you’ve marked as Favorite.
If you don’t like the selection: Press the Delete key or click the Reject button in the toolbar.
A red line appears at the top of frames you’ve marked as Rejected.
Note: If you chose Hide Rejected from the Filter pop-up menu at the top of the Browser, clips marked as Rejected disappear from view.
Remove ratings from clips
Make sure the clips you want to work with appear in the Browser.
You might need to choose a new option, such as All Clips, from the Filter pop-up menu at the top-left corner of the Browser so that all the clips you need to access are visible.
In the Browser, select the clips whose rating you want to remove, and press the U key or click the Clear Rating button in the toolbar.
The green or red line at the top of the clips disappears.
Note: An orange line along the bottom of an event clip indicates the clip is being used in the current project (open in the Timeline). To turn this view on or off, choose View > Show Used Media Ranges.
