Edit Sequence File Names

Recommended Posts

I was wondering and hoping there is a way to change sequence file names? If there isn't a way to do so when you have the sequence open in the SE is it safe to change the file names within the folder the sequences are located? 

Thanks!

Change away. Change it in file manager to anything you want, then reopen it.

If you prefer you can do a file save as to a new name, then delete the original.

If you have any shows saved, you will need to update them to the new filenames.

Great, thanks!

If I go the "Save As" method will I need to re-link all of the tracks to the sequences? Not a huge deal by any means but it would add some steps to the process.

If by tracks you mean the audio files, then no, you won't need to relink.

Hint, when sequencing, save often and always save with a new filename.  That way you always have the older version after you realize that you made a huge mistake.  I use a filename with either date and time or more commonly the date and a revision letter.  For example:

Joy to the World 2018-10-26_1901.lms     or

Joy to the World 2018-10-26a.lms

In either case, I can easily KNOW which is the newer version.  Normally at the end of a sequencing session, I will upload the last version to Google Drive, and after I'm certain that I will NOT need to go back, I will delete all the intermediate files (keeping only the end of the day file).
