Utility for Reel naming
on Dec 19, 2009 at 6:53:36 am

HI All,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a utility program that can be used to change reel names in qt files. I have a few hundred Prores clips converted from 5D footage and I want to set each clips reel to the clip name. It's not something worth me doing by hand for this project but it would be great if there is something out there that would do this easily.,

Cheers,

Toby

PS I know gluetools has one coming but it's not out now so it doesn't count.

You can do this in FCP.

HI Shane,

If you're talking about just entering in the Reel info and then batch selecting, I know how to do that but as it's 5d footage all the TC starts at zero so giving multiple clips the same reel id doesn't help for dupe detecting or edls etc.

It's one of those things that doesn't HAVE to be done for this project so I'd rather cut than spend a few hours manually entering unique id's for each one. I just thought there might be a clever script or something as it's should just be a matter of copying the filename minus extension into another part of the metadata.

Any thoughts?

Cheers,

Toby

This is the second time I see a request for this.
I'll update my QTchange application so it will do this for you.

Stay tuned, should not take that long. (Probably tonight).

Maybe Metadata Hootenanny will do.
