Proxy movies save out with clip name, not clip title?

Curious if anyone knows (other than manually changing) the default name when using "Export proxy movie to file..." uses the "C5053" name, but I've set the camera to name the clips to "Jason-1012".

What I'm doing is saving out proxies from XDCAM transfer and having a director pick cuts, but they are based on the name of the clip, not the name that it imports with. Which wouldn't be a big deal, but I recently had someone else working with these clips who didn't have the database to reference for the original clip name.

Any ideas?

Hi Jason,

If you are seeing C500 (as opposed to the standard C0001, C0002) aliases that means that the clips have unique file names but that Free Naming is disabled on whatever device is being used to read in the files. Change 'Naming Form' or 'File Naming' (depending on the device) from 'C****' to 'Free.'

On the PDW-U1 drive this is done in the utility app under User Settings.

On the PDW-HD1500 / F1600 this is done in setup menu 36.

On the PDW-700 / F800 camcorders this is done in operational menu 28 (700) or 30 (F800).

Cheers,

Ian

Thanks Ian,

It was my 1600...my U1 is already set that way.

I don't know how you keep all this straight!
