8. To rename a clip on the timeline, simply select a clip and go to Clip > Rename. The clip name will only change in the timeline, not in the Project Panel.
This is not always true. It depends on the "Display the project item name and label color for all instances" setting in Project Settings.
9. Customize Metadata Display: You even have the option to create your own properties.
I'd like to add that the Metadata Display is saved with the Workspace. So, you can save workspaces with different Metadata Views.

"L-cut = audio transition"? Not really...
I love the things that RED have done in the video world, but I hate the fact that they're trying to patent the idea of compressing a 4k RAW image. This "idea" is so obvious it's hard NOT to think of it. RED, who once moved the video business forward, are now actively trying to stop it from developing further unless everyone else pays them. Good luck with this strategy. The result is angry customers and a lost case in the court. Not very smart.
If I'm wrong, and they actually win in court, the patent laws need to be changed - or else I'll patent the use of a button or a screen to activate something on a camera - and RED will have to pay me money for every button or touch screen on every camera they make. Hey, it's my "idea", right? At least I was the one who thought of patenting it! I'll let the other companies use my "idea" for free, of course - just not RED.
Sorry RED, I used to love you - now I'm not so sure. The fact that you closed the discussion on the RED forum speaks louder than your own words. Next time, try openness. It's quite OK when you get used to others having a different opinion from yourself.
A keyboard shortcut collection for Premiere Pro that doesn't include keys for Top & Tail editing (Ripple Trim previous/next Edit to Playhead), and calls Q and W "Go to In Point" and "Go to Out Point" which is totally wrong? Sorry, I can't take that seriously. A nice effort, but it needs to be reviewed by someone who knows the software better.
Well, the easiest way of syncing dual system recordings in Premiere is not shown here. Why? OK - here's how:
Put all the clips you want to sync into a bin. Select them all, and choose Create Multi-Camera Source Sequence. Choose to sync by audio (or TC or In or Out Points or Markers) and watch Premiere do its magic. If it's one recording, you get one source sequence. If it's five takes, you get five sequences. I thin you get the idea?
For the sort of material shown in the videos above, this would be faster and easier than the two methods used. Premiere has GREAT built-in syncing tools. Merge Clips is my least favorite one, as it requires me to know what clips belong together, and it screws up my favorite shortcuts Q and W.
Using MultiCam syncing instead, I don't need to know what clips belong together, and I can still use Q and W as normal. Automatic, fast and easy.
Why would I ever want to do it the slow and cumbersome ways?
