Could someone point me where to find the color meaning of the different badge FX that appear on the top left corner next to the name of a clip in the timeline panel?

I did a search in the Premiere Pro Help without any success!

It looks like we have:

fx-yellow/gold

fx-purple

fx-white

fx-green

Thanks,

David

For who ever will look at this topic, I finally got a direct answer from Adobe. Following is the direct link which explains the meaning of the color fx badges:

Apply, remove, find, and organize clips in Premiere Pro

FX badges

  

An FX badge is an icon in the Timeline that lets you easily identify if an effect has been applied to a clip.

Premiere Pro offers FX badges in different colors. Just by looking at the badge color, you can determine if you have applied an effect, modified an intrinsic effect

You could have figured this out for yourself, so did I.

White : no effects

Yellow : just fixed effects

Purple : effects

Green : fixed effects and effects.

I am sorry if I am dense but what does it means "just fixed effects" and "fixed effects"?

...and if it is so obvious to you, I will be happy to read whatever Adobe put together online? do you have a link?

Thanks,

David

Any official words from Adobe where I can find their definition for these fx color badge in CC2014? I am on-lining a project that was edited somewhere else, and I am trying to make sense of all the different effects used (speed ramp, transform, speed/duration, other PrP effects) when re-linking the media. Knowing what the official meaning of these colors are, might help organizing my work. Help and google search has not help me so far.

Thanks!FX-color-badge.jpg

I think I gave you an accurate answer.

Adobe changed the name from fixed effects to intrinsic.

Thanks for the beautifully layed out graphic on this, that's nice. It's not a question that's asked a lot, because I think a lot of people just ignore those badges, which (much of the time) one can do. But at times, it's very good to know what they indicate, and yea, there's not a great documentation on this.

In the near future, those colors will have gone from the program.
