Default OMF Export changing file names

Hello Everyone,

I'm using Pro Tolls Ultimate on a mac with Monterey. I'm exporting an OMF for a client and all works fine with sync but when exporting Pro Tools changes all file names. Is there a way to keep the original file names ?

Thanks a lot in advance!

use AAF (not OMF) to preserve file names (and what does this have to do with Pro Tools | First ?)

Also be sure to save as an Embedded (OMF or AAF) for the client. As having the seperate folder of audio files is where this communication breaks down.
