Render with unique filename

PostMon May 27, 2013 3:53 pm

Hi everybody.

I've got a timeline conformed from Red clips, some of which are used several times.
When it comes to render, I use "individual source clips" with source filename, and resolve overwrites a rendered clip as soon as the same source clip is used again.
"Render to separate directory" is no use in this case, since all clips from the same source share the exact same filename then, which cannot be handled by the customer.
"Render with unique filename" adds a numbering at the beginning of the filename. That's no use either.

What I want to do is tell Resolve not to overwrite already rendered files, but to simply add something like "_002" at the end if there's a source filename intersection.

Anyway to do this?

It's alright to rename the rendered files by hand if there's only few of them, but with a bigger project...

Any help appreciated.

Thanks!

in the latest version, there's a submenu to "render unique filename", letting you choose between filename prefix or suffix. suffix does the job for me, but unfortunately, you can't choose what the suffix will be like. and even worse, suffix only works for container formats, not for file sequences like DPX.

BMD, please add the suffix option for DPX :-)

BUMP.

Same issue here, with RED files. Surprised I can't find a solid solution. Wish it would create a unique name for just the overwrite conflicts and not everything.

Renaming all files with a unique name does not allow me to reconnect offline media using file name back in premiere.

I have also found a work around by exporting all individual clips into separate folders. It will no longer overwrite files at export but adds a lot of load of unnecessary clutter and then you're dealing with two clips exactly the same name.
