Access Premiere clip colors

I just started learning scripting for AE and Premiere, so excuse me if I use any wrong terminology.

I just need to know if through scripts, I can automate the label colors of the clips on the timeline based on the track they live on.

I usually color code my clips while editing, so all clips on the same track have the same color. So I was hoping that, instead of me changing the clip manually when I add it to the track, there would be a way to tell Premiere to change all clips on V1, for instance, to one of the available Label Colors.

I hope my question makes sense.

Not sure about AE (Zac?), but PPro does not expose label colors, via ExtendScript. I'll add your vote to the API feature request.

You can get/set the label applied to a projectItem, but not a trackItem (which may have a different label).

Thank you very much for your reply, Bruce. It's a shame this is not available in Premiere as a feature or accessible through ExtendScript. Hope Adobe implements it soon.

You can change clip colors in a track via the API, but only by changing the clip's project item color and having the timeline setting "Show Source Clip Name and Label" enabled in Premiere, which doesn't work for everyone's use case since each project item can only have one color across the whole project.

Only other way is to change them manually, or set a hotkey to change a specific color and trigger that hotkey with AHK or something hacky like that.

If interested in the ProjectItem approach, here's some more info on that:

I'm looking to get some clip from a track and modify this clips based on the color of the clip, but it seems this is not available yet (since 2016 when @Bruce Bullis put his post).

This would be great for automating changes to Adobe Premiere projects automatically

 

Thankd and KR,
