For years i've been taking transparent layers (from item menu) and using them in my timelines to organize my footage. For my string outs I put them on top of sections of footage and rename it to let me know what kind of shots I have. FOr example, if I have a string out of 20 clips and 5 of them are trees - I stretch the transparent layer over those 5 clips and rename it to "trees"
Usually when I create "one" transparent layer item in my bin I can duplicate it and rename it with out it changing the name of all of them; but recently when I was trying to teach my assiatnt how to do it - it actually changed the names of all of them.
I couldn't figure out how to unlink them with out her making new transparent layer items (which suck)
Anyone know how to unlink duplicated transparent layers?
I already see the names. I'm talking about when I duplicate the transparent layer in my timeline and rename it - I don't want premiere to change the names of all of them at the same time. I want the duplicate to stand alone so I can make it something different with out having to create a whole new transparent layer.
