    Can't add scene number to Group Clips?

    I'm really dumbfounded by this. Seems like it should be so simple.

    I just created a Group Clip and want to add a Scene Number to it in the Scene column in the browser. The rest of my clips are labeled with Scene/Take numbers to organize them without changing the clip name. 

    Avid allows me to enter a value in the scene column for my group clip, but when you hit Enter or Return, the number just disappears. What's going on here? 

    Is there some kind of fix to this? Confused

    It's the same in 6.5.4.1 and it needs to be fixed.

    Can all of you confirm this issue still exists?  And with which versions of software?

    We're running v5.5 on a MacBook Pro running OS 10.9.4 and v6 on a Mac Pro running OS 10.7.5. The issue exists on both systems.

    Still happening in 8.3. Also applies to "Take" column.
    Is there a fix or workaround for this? I'd like to conserve my "Comments" column for actual comments...

    same here on MC6.0.5. I was able to workaround this by creating a custom "Scene 2" Column and then place my text there.

    Script-based editing shows the take number when you add the group to a script, so it's important that these columns work the way that they do with ungrouped clips.

    Still an issue with Media Composer 8.3.1. I agree with the above poster that this is a huge issue for ScriptSync or script based editing. They appear as white empty boxes.

    Re: Can't add scene number to Group Clips?

    Can anybody using 8.4 check this out to see if it's been fixed (or not).  I'll escalate it if it's still outstanding.

    (Sorry, I'm stuck on 7.0.4.4 'cause I need ScriptSync right now.)

    hbrock, any way you can find a colleague offline to check this on an 8.4 system? It would be nice to get this fixed.

    It's 100% still happening in 8.4. No scene numbers appear in script mode over group clips. Only single takes.

    Re: Can't add scene number to Group Clips?

    I can report it, but I'm not sure it's a bug or a feature request.  Can anybody remember if this ever worked?  I don't recall ever being able to add scene and take fields to Group clips.  But if it did work and it got broken, I'll be happy to escalate it.

    I can see how the naming could get confusing if you're not careful since you need to indicate the "generic" take number and not tie a camera ID into the take field or things could get confusing.  You can name the group clip anything you want and that does show up in Script view and it wouldn't mess up any metadata as it only describes the Group name.
