Hello helpful community,

I have encountered a client that wants preview cuts delivered with shot number overlays based on the shots in each particular video instead of a timecode overlay.

Does anyone know of a way to automate this instead of making titles and trimming them to each cut in the edit? I would be very grateful.

Old thread, have you finished the project ?
You can rename the video files, or clip name according to the shot obviously, then activate the overlay in the monitor (click the wrenchbar thing).
You can choose the overlay info based on clip name/file name.

We are not yet done with the project, but overlaying titles seems like it will be faster than renaming files. Especially since we have more than one editor using the same files.
Thanks for the idea though.

You didn't have to rename the files, you can rename the clip instead. It's faster than manually placing titles.
I don't know how you manage the footage, but if we renaming something and press enter, it automatically goes to the next footage below. Making it really easy to rename clip consecutively.

The benefit would be, if you using the same clip elsewhere, you didn't have to place title again.

Although because the project is already ongoing, renaming the clip would not make the overlay appear in the old timeline.

But you can easily solve this by match frame (F), then you can replace the clip in the timeline with a new clip name with in-out point intact.

Using shortcut to "replace clip from source", this can be done much faster than manually placing titles, also you minimize the work need to be done if you trim clip, since the Shot overlay is done automatically.
Also you can limit the overlay info, say you didn't want the overlay to show up in the mercury transmit, or in playback.

But it's your project, you ultimately decide what's the best option would be.
Also you said that the project is being edit by 2 editor, so yeah renaming the files would be a better option.
That was just my 2 cents.

Happy editing !
