Export with Original Clip Names
on Feb 22, 2017 at 8:25:51 pm

Hi,

I'm having trouble with clip filenames after exporting them from Adobe Premiere Pro. The exports are automatically being named after the sequence, but I would like for the exported files to match the original source clip filenames. Below is my current workflow:

Multiple clips butted together in the timeline.
I select each individual clip with In+Out points by clicking "X"
Export Media, then Add to Queue.
In Adobe Media Encoder, I run the queue of multiple clips.

Would appreciate any insight you may have to resolve this issues.

Thanks!
John Smith

You could use the project manager.

You can select all the clips, right click and choose Render and Replace. Select Individual Clips. You can then choose where to have all these new clips located. After this you can select and choose Restore Unrendered to return your timeline clips to their original state.

The only caveat here is that the clips will have "Rendered" as part of the name. Example a .mov will be name_Rendered.mov and if you go to a different format it could look like name.mov_Rendered.mxf.

marquee each clip in the timeline

and choose Clip>create subclip (on mac CMD U )

the sub clip will appear in the project panel...and it will inherhit the original clip name as part of its name...

you can batch the subclips from the project panel through AME...

so either fix the names as you sub clip, fix them in the project panel....


or you can use Bridge or some other renaming tool after the fact to batch modify the names....

@Tero, how? Details please.

@Paul, I’m totally confused. What does rendering have to do with file naming? For example, my clip name is X00000001, and the output file I get is "airport-card-a” which is the sequence name. The system automatically adds sequential numbers afterwards to avoid overwrites.


@Alex, that workaround actually works! There a couple of issues though:
1. I’m having trouble making subclips from multiple clips.
2. I have to manually create and name each subclip.
Frankly, I’m shocked that there’s not a more convenient or efficient method. I’ve never used Bridge. Wouldn’t other renaming tools be the same as if I copied and pasted each and every filename manually?

Thanks again!

Hi...

1) nope can't make multiple subclips at the same time....that's correct

2) Bridge and other tools can sometime rename in batches matching a pattern. so you can select a set of files and a do a rename pass removing "subclip" or some other pattern match from the file names....or truncating the last X number of characters...or something like that....so you don't have to do it one at a time...

@Alex Udell
1. Darn. I wonder why Adobe limits it to only a single.
2. Understood. In that case, I could probably do the same thing quicker and easier with Renamer app or Better File Renamer.

You can make multiple subclips from a single clip in Prelude, name each one uniquely and batch export (literally select them all, pick a format and location then hit OK) them from there with the name you've given them. Of course, that would be cuts only. No FX.

Try this...

Lasso all the clips in your sequence and drag them to a bin.

Select all the clips that are now in the bin.

Press Command M (Mac) or CTL M (PC)

Set up your encode and press Queue.

After Media Encoder opens, select all the clips in the Queue and double click the preset setting for the first one (or any one). It will warn you that you are edting settings for all the clips in the queue, which is what you want to do.

When the preview pane opens, at the bottom of the video preview, change the Source Range to "clip in/out"

******NOTE: When selecting multiple clips to adjust settings in Media Encoder make sure you only select the line that has the settings...the line with the blue text and not the line above with the clip name. For some reason changing the Source Range to "Clip In/Out" will not apply to all clips if you simply do a Command/Control-A, or select everything. I think this is a bug, because other settings do apply to all items.


Thats it. All the clips you pulled from the timeline will encode with their original names.

You're welcome.

Yeah....this is the reason I didn't suggest this...
