Hi,

when i change the label color on a clip all other clips which are connected to the same media file also change their color. I'm using version cc2019 and I remember that on cs6 everything worked as it should. Is there any way to change this behavior?

The label color is based on a Master Clip / Affiliate Clip reference if "Display the project name and label color for all instacnes" option is enabled in the General Project Settings.

 

So...

 

Import the clip a second time to create a second Master Clip that can be set to a different label color or no label color.  Although, you'll have to replace the first Master Clip with the second anywhere you're already using it in a Sequence.

 

Or...

 

Go to File > Project Settings > General and uncheck Display the project name and label color for all instances.

Thanks for this fix! Not sure how I ended up checking this box, but my color wishes are back to normal
