Find and Replace Text in Item Names
An extremely useful addition to the UI would be a "Find and Replace" function for searching items' names in the Project Panel.
For example, if using a templated Project (as we make extensive use of), you could quickly find the 25 sequences with the names:
SEASON xEPISODE yyGUEST NAMECLIP 01
SEASON xEPISODE yyGUEST NAMECLIP 02
SEASON xEPISODE yyGUEST NAMECLIP 03
SEASON xEPISODE yyGUEST NAMECLIP 25
Allowing you to quickly:
Search for "x" and replace with "3"
Search for "yy" and replace with "12"
Search for "GUEST NAME" and replace with "ROGER FEDERER"
And then very rapidly get:
SEASON 3EPISODE 12ROGER FEDERERCLIP 01
SEASON 3EPISODE 12ROGER FEDERERCLIP 02
SEASON 3EPISODE 12ROGER FEDERERCLIP 03
SEASON 3EPISODE 12ROGER FEDERERCLIP 25
Bonus points if you can choose to search the whole project, the current bin, or only selected items (recursively, of course).
Yep, we do this too. Lots of templated sequences that get renamed on each project.
Also, Batch Renaming clips would be a useful feature.
