  • Batch change extensions

    I have clients bringing in various media from their camcorders. I found that by changing the extensions, I can get them into Edius. Like from a Panasonic disk camcorder, they make .m2ts files-- if I change them to .MTS, they will import perfectly. Problem is, they have typically 50 to 100 or more files on each media or disk-- is there a way to group change them?- individually takes forever!---- thanks!, -------------Ed

        Why would a file NOT import that is supposed to?

        Ok, if a file IS supported (in this case, .m2ts) and does NOT work with Pro 6.5 (up dated to 6.51), then why wouldn't it?-- this questions would be applicable to ANY file it is SUPPPOSED to import-- Where would we look?- How do we know WHAT IS supported so we know there IS a problem? (of course, we users really don't like the "engineer answers" in code like: excep:0x000eee0 because cannot find wotrieir999994ry888,.ccssx

              change batch extensions

              Using explorer, click on the folder you have the files in that you want to change the extensions, hold the shift key and right click- a dialog box opens, choose "open command prompt"-- there you type in (say like in my case, i wanted to change the m2ts files to MTS ), type in


              rem *.m2mts *.MTS hit enter and all the files in that folder will change to the .MTS extension----- pretty cool !
