Default $namecount counting incorrectly (FIXED)

Hi,

I am building gun sounds in layers. So I have tracks named: Mechanism, Noise, Punch - and I have 5 regions for each gunshot. My render name is: Gun_Fire_$track_$namecount which gives me the following files:

Gun_Fire_Mechanism_01
Gun_Fire_Mechanism_02
Gun_Fire_Mechanism_03
Gun_Fire_Mechanism_04
Gun_Fire_Mechanism_05
Gun_Fire_Noise_01
Gun_Fire_Noise_02
Gun_Fire_Noise_03
Gun_Fire_Noise_04
Gun_Fire_Noise_05
Gun_Fire_Punch_01
Gun_Fire_Punch_02
Gun_Fire_Punch_03
Gun_Fire_Punch_04
Gun_Fire_Punch_05

This works flawlessly.

I want to design a separate LastBullet sound on a new track/region(06) and render it using the same method (Gun_Fire_$track_$namecount) and I'm hoping to have it named it as: Gun_Fire_LastBullet_01

But instead I'm getting: Gun_Fire_LastBullet_06.

This is the only version of that sound, and $namecount implies that it'd be '01' but it's using the region name instead?

Is this working as intended?

Cheers,

Rez

It is working as documented:
Quote:
$namecount 1 for the first item or region of the same name, 2 for the second...
In this case region 6 is the 6th region of the same name... If region 6 isn't used for the other tracks, you could rename it to something with a unique name.

It looks like we should add a new wildcard which is "nth item rendered on this track". edit: adding this, $timelineorder_track

I think that's a good idea with a new wildcard. Slightly more intuitive.

Would you also be able to tweak the $filenumber wildcard?

Currently, the $filenumber wildcard is always displayed in 3 digits - 001, 002, 003, which isn't used very commonly as most people aren't rendering more than 100 tracks of stems (as opposed to regions or items). Would you be able to make the default 2 digits and then use $filenumber[N] to change the digits? For example:

- If N=01 then the render uses two digits.
- If N=001 then the render uses three digits.

Yep, was thinking the same thing (will leave the default as 3 digits to preserve existing behavior for $filenumber without a [N] suffix).
