Variables in timeline name on delivery page

PostTue Aug 20, 2019 10:30 am

today we cannot use keywords that attached to the timeline in the final naming when we export the timeline.
it can be helpful if I can attached any metadata that is written in the metadata fields of the timeline to the final timeline name- like I can do to individual clips when exporting

the timeline name is - Commercial A
it have a few keywords like - TV, HW_P3_HQ_PL_TR_TV_ST_15_02, Left, Right, VOD

i want my final name to be: Commercial A TV HW_P3_HQ_PL_TR_TV_ST_15_02

Yes! please

the ability to use any metadata field for timeline exports in the delivery page would be huge!
and to have a current date stamp as well

The variable system in the deliver page (as well as elsewhere in the Resolve UI) is so awesome, but it still needs many improvements that otherwise prevents Resolve from being the ultimate media processing app.

I would add:

- POSIX date formatting tokens
- Individual placeholders for timecode values (so you can write timecode without separators, for example)
- Timeline Shot number index
- Clip Aspect Ratio
- printf() style padding/format options for numeric placeholders
- Framecount (counting from zero at the head of the physical file)
