I read on the forum that you cannot easily rename a file in Audition itself, since this function is an OS service. Okay, fine with me.
But I really need to rename my files properly. What do I do?
I have a Multisession file with a lot of different clips linked to original tracks. I marked the part in the original track and then 'send' it to the multi session.
Now that I want to give the session to somebody else as an OMF, I want to clean up a little and rename the original files to proper names, so that the other person can understand what is what.
Poor me, I did the whole workaround: Renaming in Finder (Mac user here) and relinking the file in my session.
Which seems fine. No doublicated files which would make the session heavy when exporting.
BUT the clips names have not changed a bit in the session. Its still the same mess as before.
Maybe I'm missing something here. How can I rename in a proper way?
Copy link to clipboard
Your problem here is that clip names and file names aren't related. Once imported into Multitrack, the names you gave those clips when you saved them as markers will be imported into the session file. If you right-click on a clip, you'll find that you get a 'rename' option, and that's the only way you can change the displayed clip name. Do this to all of them and then resave the session.
Thank you so much for your always on the spot answers!
Why didn't I think myself of this...
This does the deal!
