UPDATE: Adobe has moved this effect to “Obsolete” which means someday it will disapear.
Have you ever wanted to overlay the name of each clip in your sequence timeline? I can’t say I have, but I know it could come in handy if someone ever wanted to see the filename of each clip you used in the edit.
Just add an Adjustment Layer on the video track above the clips in your timeline. Then find the “Clip Name” effect in your Effects list (Effects > Video Effects > Video > Clip Name) and drag it on to your Adjustment Layer.
Now head over to your “Effects Control Panel” and find your “Clip Name” Effect. Change the “Source Track” to the Video Source Layer with your clips on it. In my case, V1.
Now you can see each clip name overlayed above your video clip. Export that sucker and send it to your client for some really great micromanagement! Just kidding.
