    Batch Renaming Clips in the Bin

    Hello, just a wild idea here. What would you do if you want to batch rename a bunch of clips...say a few hundred?

    It looks like GraphicConverter can do this job.

    Under File/Convert & Modify, select source and desired destination, in Function menu choose Rename, than push Go, which takes you to window with all thinkable parameters.

    I'm going to take a wild guess that he wants to rename his clips in a bin - not individual files on the drive...

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    curiosity: looks you're right

    In that case I would try way thru ALE and texteditor Find-Replace - if there is some similarity in their names. Or divide clips by selected criteria to several bins and then again ALE export and...

    Than import changed ALE and Relink.

    Or not sure if I'm right, but MetaCheater can do this?

    But frankly, I really don't care about clips names except they content take/slate information.

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    You mean in Bins or on system level? I'm interested because Pan&Zoom can't handle files with accented characters. I have to rename manualy hunderts of images (as I live in country where we use accented characters in almost every word).

    If you are asking me, I know that my Vista system can do it on the system level, not sure about XP, haven´t had a need to try.

    In Vista, just select them all and rename, they should be named x - x(copy1) - x(copy2) etc

    Yes, to rename houndreds of clip names manually - one by one - is quite annyoing slave work.

    Is there no batch renaming?

    You should create a thread on this in the Features Request Forum.

    Re: Batch Renaming Clips

    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).
