    Disable group clip and sync clip suffixes

    When assisting for TV drama, my workflow for daily rushes creates new clips with suffixes that have to be manually removed in a tedious and time consuming manner.

    I wonder if it's possible to change settings and prevent Media Composer from adding the ".sync.01" suffix to the new sync'ed clips (where I've autosync'ed picture to audio)?

    And if I can prevent Media Composer from adding the ".grp.01" suffix to newly created group clips?

    I've had the same issue on MC 4, 5, and 5.5.

    I've explored settings and checked forums here and at Creative Cow, but found nothing on this subject. However I'm sure this tedious clip re-naming must be a problem for many assistant editors out there.

    Any help would be appreciated!

    I don't think it's possible.

    Feature Request Forum, perhaps?

    Must think of something clever to go here...

    Good idea. I'll re-post this as a feature request.

    Cheers!
