We had in mind some little scripts to help editors on specific tasks, and we decided to add them inside PlumePack in a separate section :
New Feature : UnMerge - Reverse the 'Merge Clip' process on your Project Items ! The clips in timeline from the original Merged Clips are linked to new Media Project Items automatically created. Can be applied on the whole project or just on selected Project Items. More Infos in this article.
New Feature : Trim selected items - A quick tool to trim some selected timeline clips, import the trimmed files and replace the selected timeline clips automatically
New Feature : Rename Tape Name metadata using Filename - Modify all or a selection of Project Items 'Tape Name' metadata to match the filename. Useful for relinking Media when the filename changed, especially after a PlumePack process !
New Feature : Add empty space (defined by a frame number option) before all selected clips or all clips in timeline
Other Improvements on the PlumePack Consolidation Process
Project Analysis has been greatly optimized and can be up to
20 times faster
and is updated at the end of the process, displaying the exact size Saved/Cleaned and not an estimation.
We added a new
Sequence Tree Structure
in Analysis - Showing explicitly which sequences are taken into account under a 'Tree' display. You can also click on the timeline icon next to your timeline name to open it from there !
We added a new
Folder Tree Structure
in Analysis - Showing explicitly how the final structure will be after the PlumePack process depending on the option used
There is also a new special workflow with Offline Clips :
If a media has offline and online Project Items, the offline clips are ignored and not replaced during the PlumePack process. The online clips are trimmed and not excluded anymore from trimming
The offline clips are not copied anymore by PlumePack, even if found on disk
Offline Clips are removed from the new project like any other clips (depending on the Filter options and the Used state of the clips)
Finally : AE Comp Dependencies are not copied multiple times if referenced in different AE Comps linked to the same project !
