Default Re: DigiBase Feature Requests ... Please Post Here

It would be GREAT to have an easy way to either A Copy the File Comments in bulk to the Clip Name or B Have the option to have the File Comments be the name/partial name of the file in PT. Descriptions are EVERYTHING when trying to sort through a One Bin Audio Files list.

You can do this: create a catalog or several catalogs from your sound effects folders. Once you have your catalog, you can select "Copy Finder Comments to Clip Name" from the catalog mini-menu.

3 Mtools has a great function called Pull Lists. Pull lists let you choose a lot of files that you auditioned to a sub-list that can be bulk-imported directly into PT. These lists can also be saved for quick "re-searches" in the future. E.G - Fight scenes in TV show....Favorite Punches/BodyFalls/BoneCracks/Weapons right at your finger tips in PT without having to create a massive reorganization of folders and new catalogs.

Again, you can use catalogs for this. You can either select items from a browser and choose "Create Catalog From Selection" from the browser mini-menu or you can create an empty catalog in the workspace browser and create your pull list by drag & drop. You can also create a pull list by selecting search results and using the "Create Catalog From Selection" command.
