The function of a Label is to attach additional information to a tag. By default, labels are applied to the most recent tag. They do not create an instance on a timeline.
For example, we may want to further describe our tagged passes with Labels, to mark an outcome e.g. "successful" and "unsuccessful".
If the user has selected tag(s) on the timeline the tagging template will enter Label Mode where labels can be applied to all currently selected tag(s).
Labels can be visualised by selecting a tag and going to Tag Properties. Alternatively, they will appear in the Tag Preview window when clicking on a tag in the timeline.
- Navigate to the Tag Template window, and choose the Tag Template Designer.
- To create a new label, choose the add Label button, and give it a name.
- This will create a button in your tag template for the label.
