Assigning user-defined clip titles
automatically
About the automatic title generation
function
By default, clips on each disc are assigned names
in the range C0001.MXF to C9999.MXF. For this
reason, two discs can contain clips with the same
names. The automatic title generation function
allows you to assign titles to all of the clips on
several discs, which facilitates clip management.
For example, if the titles TITLE00001 to
TITLE00020 are assigned to clips C0001.MXF to
C0020.MXF on disc 1, then the titles
TITLE00021 to TITLE00037 are assigned to
clips C0001.MXF to C0017.MXF on disc 2.
Titles are made up of prefixes, up to 10 characters
in length, and five-digit serial numbers such as
TITLE 00001.

Setting the title prefix
You can assign title prefixes by choosing from a
prefix list stored in internal memory, or by
entering the prefix directly.

Advanced Operations for Shooting
However, to choose from a prefix list, you must
create the list beforehand on a computer and
transfer it to the unit's internal memory with a
"Memory Stick".
Setting the initial value of the serial number
The initial value of the serial number can be set to
00001 (the default) or to any other number. The
number is automatically incremented by 1 each
time you record a clip. When it reaches 99999, it
returns to 00001 for the next clip.
Note
Duplicate clip titles can be generated depending on the
serial number setting, for example if you reset the serial
number to the original value after recording several clips.
Care should be taken when setting the serial number.
