Hello dear forum
I'Ve watched a video from FCPX Tour and they select roles for various cameras and Audio. Unfortunately my system iMac latest software, FCPX 10.5.1 won't show the "colors" in my timeline, although in Index I can see that the files were attributed to the certain roles.
FCPX Tour convinced me that a colored timeline can help identify certain clips due to different grading etc.
Can someone help me, why my timeline still is blue?
If you end up disabling the audio it will show the colour of the video role, it's a general best practice (I have found personally) to make sure I set both video and audio with matching colours so that no matter the state of the clip it will show the colour you want it to.
