It would be incredibly helpful if the batch rename feature would include more metadata options. I.e.: Scene, shot, number, take number, etc. I cannot imagine that it would be that difficult an addition.

Ross, rather than having “hard wired” metadata entries, my request is to have the “wildcard” ability to plug in any metadata field if it is in the file.

Similar to how Resolve had added meta data in their naming convention

I am not familiar with Resolve.

There are so many possible metadata sources, that giving users the ability to “create their own sources” seems to be a better option than hard coding in limited presets as this is what has lead to this problem in the first place.

The InDesign development team elected to hard code in three presets and then offer the ability to create your own. All we need is the Bridge dev’s to do the same!
