Can i export multiple clips at once from the Event Viewer?
on Nov 24, 2015 at 5:41:24 pm

I'm exporting lots of clips with timecode in order to have them transcribed. I need to do this to over 500 clips so rather than go one by one, I want to know if i can export multiple ones from the evert library at once? i want to do this from the event library so the clips have their own internal timecode names, as opposed to doing it from the timeline and having the timeline time code in there.

thanks!

Not all in one single command but you can select and share each one individually. And if you're about to say, where's the batch export?! Couldn't agree more.

Jesus christ, it's gonna take a while to export over 800 clips.

is it possible to change the Cmnd + E button so it tries to export it with the setting I made for timecode rather than the default master setting? I tried doing this and couldnt find a way. It'll save me time to just hit Cmnd+E rather than going through everything and going to the share menu.

In the destinations window right click on your setting and choose "make default"

Last time I had to do something like that, I saved my sanity by using Resolve to batch export the clips with the clip name and time code burnt in.

Jeff,

How did you do that? I have Resolve Lite on my computer but have never used it before.

Thanks as always for the help. This forum is such a lifesaver....

In my case I just and to send a stringout of each event, because the guys on the other end didn't want to be dealing with hundreds of individual clips, but it'd work for individual clips too. I'd also already imported everything into FCPX so exported to Resove from there but I could have just started in Resolve and brought everything into FCPX later.

Anyway, coming from FCPX, I edited all the clips in an event onto a timeline. I exported xml and then brought that into Resolve. In Resolve, you now have the same timeline so go to the color section, and use the burn-in pane to add the clip name and timecode. In resolve you have access to the both the project and clip timecode.

Then go the render section and in the settings panel, tell Resolve to export individual clips with no handles. Start the render and job done, sanity saved.

As mentioned, if I hadn't already started in FCPX, I could have saved a step and just brought all the clips into the Resolve media pool, and made the timeline directly in Resolve.

I guess this might not work if you wanted to add timecode that resets to to zero for each clip but I'm not sure I know of anything that could do that.

I use coremelts filter too. The latest version includes source and clip tc as well as clip name if you want it.

It's not the fastest filter though.

Another alternative is to put clips in Compressor which has a timecode filter that add tc burn in.

Jeff,

I'm in Resolve 11.1.4 and I'm looking in the advanced render settings for something that says "export individual clips with no handles" but I don't see anything that says that. Is that the exact wording of the settings? I see where I can render timeline as individual source clips or single clip. Is that what you mean?

Individual source clips is what you want. I'm not in fron of a computer right now but further down the page (from memory you may have to click 'advanced' or similar to open up the option) but you can set the number of frames for handles. Zero for none.

Cool. I see what you're talking about. Last question (I promise!): will it rename my clips? How can I stop it from doing that?

No worries, happy to help.

There's another option in the same panel that lets you tell it whether or not to rename clips, and if so what to. From memory, the default is to use the original clip name.

note you can set up scripts to automate this like with automator, keyboard maestro, or something like FCPXporter:

It seems to me FCPXporter only does project files and doesn't do batch exports of clips. Am i right about this?
