Feature request: custom naming conventions when duplicating a sequence

Currently, Premiere just appends Copy 01, Copy 02 etc to a duplicated sequence name.

 

As a result, this process requires users to maually "uptick" a new name / version number each time they duplicate. This means unnecessary key strokes and precision clicks for what should be a single keyboard shortcut: cmd + d (mac)

 

Premiere should be able to detect common naming conventions "v01, v02, v03...", "R1, R2, R3" etc. and automatically uptick and rename duplicated sequences accordingly. 

 

Furthermore, it would be great to customize exactly how to name a sequence too. Think: placeholder variables for sequence dimensions (9x16, 4x5 etc), client name, project name, date, etc. For example, a custom convention of:

 

{clientName}_{projectName}_{sequenceDimensions}_v{newVersionNumber}

 

...might yield a duplicated seauence of:

 

Adobe_NewProductVideo_9x16_v5

 

Changing the seqeunce settings later to 1920x1080 (16x9) would then dynamically change the name of the sequence to:

Adobe_NewProductVideo_16x9_v5 

 

Thoughts?

This would be nice and it's something that After Effects already does - at least for 'upticks' in numbers. Not sure dynamic name changes would be an easy thing to do though ... but post this to 'user voice' as Anne suggests and I'd upvote it.
