Tip #1153: A Faster Way to Apply Keywords
When importing, keywords can be automatically applied based on folder names.
Keywords are a fast, flexible and powerful way to organize clips in the Browser. However, applying them can be time-consuming. There’s a faster way. Organize those clips that are not copied from a camera card, into folders.
NOTE: For camera card files, rename the folder that contains the camera card files, without renaming the media files themselves.
In the Media Import window, check Keywords > From Folders (see screen shot).
Then, when the clips are imported, keywords are automatically assigned to each clip based on its folder name.
NOTE: If you select a folder that contains other folders (see screen shot) all folder names are assigned as keywords.
