    Using both PackageName and Material Name in AMT3

    I would like to create MXF files that set the Avid BIN Name and Tape columns independently.

    For example Name to A003C009_101129_R1V8 and Tape to A003R1V8

    Dropping an AMT2 created MXF Op-Atom file into the MediaInfo app shows the package name as A003R1V8 / A003C009_101129_R1V8


    In AMT2 this was possible as follows…

    Name = folder name sent to CreateAmtFile

    Tape = tapeName in the destination media properties XML


    In AMT3 I get either the PackageName or the Material name depending on the DescriptorType as follows…

    DescriptorType = TapeDescriptor

    Name = PhysicalSourceInfo.PackageName

    Tape = PhysicalSourceInfo.PackageName


    DescriptorType = ImportDescriptor

    Name = MaterialName

    Tape = Blank


    There is the jobDefinition.mediaParameters().tapeName() call, but this also applies the string to both Name and Tape.

    I see MaterialName in the PresetsAndOverrides.xsd, but can't see how this is used or even if it's relevant ?

    It would be great if in TapeDescriptor mode both the PackageName and the MaterialName were used.


    Many thanks,
