When working on a show with many video clips, images or audio tracks it can be easy to lose track of all your files. Use this naming method to organize your graphics before importing them into the Stage TEN Pro Studio!
When multiple files are imported into the Stage TEN Pro Studio at the same time they will organize themselves by name. The chronological order of the media files in your show will likely not match this name based organization:
In this example we would like our media to appear in this order
HOST LOWER THIRD
SUBSCRIBE LOWER THIRD
To re-order these media files we will add 4 digits and an underscore at the start of each files name, starting with 0010_ and counting up by tens Ex:
- 0010_STARTING SOON
- 0020_ANIMATED INTRO
- 0030_HOST LOWER THIRD
- 0040_SUBSCRIBE LOWER THIRD
- 0050_ANIMATED OUTRO
Now all our media will appear in the desired order, and the more media files used in a show the more useful this method becomes.
- If you need to add another file in the middle of your show unexpectedly you can count by ones Ex. 0031_GUEST LOWER THIRD
- This method will work for a show that has up to 999 media files
