Renaming when cropping clips

Post by omutumo » Sat Jul 07, 2012 5:15 pm

Is there anyway to change how live renames multiple clips when you crop? It doesn't rename the first clip and then suffix's from 1 up. Wanted to change it so that it starts at 1 and all clips have a number, at the moment I just rename the first one with 0 (zero) to keep it neat.

Not a big deal but I'm cropping large amounts of small clips at the moment and it would help a lot with organisation.

edit- Would be helpful to know how to change this for custom renaming too :)

Cheers.

OCD ? :cry:
(I don't know of any way other than the manual way you do... maybe should go in the "feature wishlist" section)

Yes, probably OCD! I like to keep things neat. Doing a lot of field recordings at the moment and things are getting very messy (especially with one-shot hits).

Don't want to use 3rd party file renaming tools either as live has a tendency to get itself all worked up if you don't rename in the file browser :(


If there is any flexibility when renaming in live? Any tips or tricks at all... would love to know.
