How do you copy clip names in name column and paste to another column ('description' for example)? I want to rename all clips in a premier project, but I really dislike that there's no column that actually shows the file path and that you have to rely on Premiere's under-the-hood links to the original material. So, I want to do what I've done in Avid- copy the names of all clips and paste into another column. I can't figure out how to do this quickly. Instead, I have to do it one at a time. Anyone know how to do this all in one go?

Scott...

wait...

project panel menu > metadata display >

search path

enable it

move column to a more convenient view position...

now you can rename the main filed without worrying about not remembering the original file name...does that help?

so the copying may not be necessary.

Thanks, Alex.

I see "Media File Path". It's not quite as rock solid as having the original file name, as a path can change (and sometimes accidentally the original file name can be lost), but this is definitely good to know about.
