About File Naming Patterns

T-SBADV-011-007

It is possible to define sequential file name patterns when exporting to a image sequence, bitmap, EDL and AAF (movie files).

For example:%4s.%2p.%3f.%4F.tga

%4s => shot name on 4 chars (all export formats)
%2p => panel name on 2 chars (all export formats)
%3f => frame on 3 chars (Image Sequence and Bitmap)
%4F => global frame on 4 chars (Image Sequence Only)

Where:

% means it will be replaced by:

s (shot name)
p (panel number)
f (local frame number in panel)
F (global frame number in timeline)

The number in-between represents the minimum length to display it. If the text value is shorter than this length, it will be left-padded by 0 (zero).

For example:

If the frame number is 48, and the user specifies the following in file name:

%1f = you will see "48" in file name.

%2f = you will see "48" in file name.

%3f = you will see "048" in file name.

%4f = you will see "0048" in file name.
