Question Audio Filenames

Hello,

A mixer I work with noticed something that I can reproduce with v9 and v7.4. I cannot find if this is documented as the way it is or if I am doing something wrong.

If I name an audio track PF_123, and record a region to that track, the file is named PF_01, not PF_123_01. Is this normal and expected behavior? I have observed this with AIF and WAV as the session audio file format. Replacing a hyphen (-) for the underscore (_) did not make a difference. If this issue is mentioned in the reference guide, I have not found it.

Thanks for reading!

I just created a session. 48k/24bit WAV. Inserted a track called PF_123 and the resulting recordings were PF_123_01, PF_123_02, PF_123_03, etc.,

Those are the file names? I was getting correct region names but incorrect file names, that's why I'm asking for verification.

I see. You're right. The region names are what I listed. The audio filenames are PF_01.wav, PF_02.wav, etc.,

I don't know why its doing that. You could always highlight your regions then export region definitions (CMD Shift Y) that should change your file names to what you named your regions.

Unfortunately. At least I know that someone else is observing the same behavior and I'm not doing anything wrong, have a funky preference, etc. Thanks for checking.
