The Event ID column shows a unique identifier based on the CLIP LIST tab number and event row number, separated by a hyphen. Dragging an event row up or down to re-order it in the list automatically results in a change of the row number for that event and, if necessary, those that follow it in the same tab. EVENT ID numbers can also be directly edited, and this ability actually constitutes a very powerful content management tool.

For example:

- Select an EVENT ID field, and change the (event row) number following the hyphen. The event row is moved up or down in the current tab accordingly. This works just as well for multi-selected event rows (the original order of the selection is preserved when moving multi-selected event rows)

 Use renumbering to locate certain types of events at easily remembered list locations (for example, you might assign all of your imported graphics clips to the 900’s).

- Multi-select several EVENT ID fields, and change the leading (tab) number – voila, the selected events appear in the new tab. (If there are existing event rows in the target tab with the same numbers as the new arrivals, these are ‘pushed down’ and renumbered to make room for the new insertions.)

Note that individual clips (camera angles) each have their own unique numbers, too, though these aren’t directly shown in the CLIP LIST. Clip ID’s are in the format ‘tab # - event # - camera’. For example, the full Clip ID for an angle might be “0-127-3”. (This Clip ID number is displayed in the Clip Info area beneath monitors when playing CLIP LIST entries.)

Tip: The first column of PLAY LIST tabs displays a similar, but non-editable, CLIP ID, which includes the angle number. These numbers are local to the PLAY LIST, and are not updated by changes in CLIP LIST order, etc.
