    MC 8.3 - Selecting Clip Colors

    Hello Everyone,

    As you may know, Media Composer allows you to designate clip colors. If Clip Color -> Source is enabled in your timeline, you can see at a glance which clips are in use.

    Prior to 8.3, you could [Alt] + click on the color column in a bin, then pick a color. Not so now. [Alt] + click-ing may lock up MC, leading to a Force Quit, which could lead to lost work.

    From Media Composer 8.3.1's Help:

    Here's the thing:

    Bullet 1 works.

    Bullet 2 works.

    Bullet 3 is just plain wrong.

    I started trying key combos. Here's what works:

    1. [Control] + [Command] + click - invokes Avid's color picker.

    2. [Control] + [Option] + click - invokes the OS X's color picker.

    So if you're used to the [Alt] + click, watch out.

    Hello,
    Try using the console command :

    useCrossPlatformColorPicker 1

    Then the [Alt] + click on the color column in a bin, will work Stick out tongue

    I guess It’s a nasty old bug ,Avid should have a look on that Smile
