Source Track Names in the Timeline

With the proliferation of multi-track audio recorders, most of us are now dealing with multi-track sources when editing. In Media Composer that used to present a problem. Once you’d made a cut, it was hard to tell which track you’d used. If you wanted to go back and use the same track, you often had to figure out which was which by looking at a waveform, or by listening. Not anymore. Starting with Version 5, a simple timeline menu pick will display source tracks for all clips in the timeline, alongside the clip name. It’s a small thing, but it’s significantly simplified the way I work with multi-track audio.

If you assign the Clip Tracks menu pick to a keyboard button, you can display source data with a quick tap, and then hide it just as easily.
