    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    Get the file naming right at the explorer level first (using any of the many tools) before you import, AMA or link via Pan & Zoom. Then your clips are named as required and match the files.

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    Job ter Burg:
    If these are master clips or subclips (not sync clips), you can export the bin in ALE format (under File->Export-ShotLog). Then you can process the names in a text editor and save. Then import the ALE back into Avid, with one of the two options that say "Merge with known sources" (under File->Import->ShotLog options). This will either merge the events from the ALE with existing master clips, or it will create subclips that link to the existing master clips (if you select automatically create subclips).

    Thanks, ALE export/import works very well for my problem becuase I'm not allowed chance file names on OS level.

    This should be a feature request.

    by clicking on the name (name column) select the name of the first clip you want to BATCH RENAME.  In the NAME column, shift+click the last of the clips you want to rename.  Right-click on the selected clips. Choose "Set Name column for selected clips..."

    -a dialog appears: Set name, and press OK

    -press OK again for the next dialog: "Set name value for al selected clips"

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    Old thread.  Old feature request.  Still, same procedure.

    Unfortunately, this renames all the clips to exactly the same name.  Some additional options would be nice - look at some of the other file-rename tools out there, and they have some nice features that should go into a clip-rename tool in MC.  This would be especially helpful for tapeless formats, which often don't give you the opportunity to change filenames when recording.  I have more "00000" AVCHD clips scattered across bins than I can count.  First thing I do when AMA-linking is to rename all my clips something more descriptive so I at least know WHICH 00000 it is - which involves a tedious, clip-by-clip, keyboard sequence.

    Thanks guys! It seems I would be sticking with OS level renaming for now. Cheers!

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    Highlight all the clips you want to rename. Then, right-click IN THE NAME COLUMN (or you won't see the option to set the name) and choose set name. This will rename ALL the highlighted clips to a single name - it doesn't increment the names.
