Michael, you are trying WAY to hard to dislike X here..

X has an unbelievable metadata based batch re-naming system built in that quite likely can solve all your objections if you'd just be open to it. .

When you import ANY card or drive or whatever the field guys have stored stuff on, you take an extra 15 seconds and simply batch re-name stuff to your standards.

The original names are still there, it's camera metadata after all and X is BUILT to preserve it.

You can use a sort code in the renaming process to match up date/time data from the video files and the audio files and everything matches perfectly at time of sync.

Bingo. Problem solved.

Stop looking for ways to imagine that X can't work. In some narrow cases, YES, it doesn't work for some users. But far too many people approach it like you do - with the presumption that it's NOT going to work for them - then they go to huge lengths to prove themselves correct.

All you gain that way is the loss of a tool that might actually make your life easier. Or not. But you'll NEVER know with the attitude you're displaying here.
