Custom Name Variables

PostSat Jan 18, 2020 6:34 pm

When I'm exporting dailies, the producers don't care about A001C004_200118_RF5Q.mov. They want to see something more like 22C-3.mov. We really need the ability to have the custom name field in the render settings use metadata variables. Something like @scene-@take_@YY@MM@DD to spit out files named 33A-1_200118.mov. Maybe a drag and drop interface to put a GUI on it. Just string blocks together to make name variables.

We can already do this. I use it all the time when I shoot for someone else.

File & clip naming Variables has been a feature of Resolve for quite a long time now, and is well documented in the User Manual.

Well huh. Chapter 165. Page 2958 for those of you who are looking for it. Excellent. My days just got a little shorter.
