Assigning user-defined names to
clips and clip lists
The following standard format names are
assigned automatically to clips and clip lists that
are created or recorded by XDCAM devices.
Clips: C0001.MXF to C9999.MXF
Clip lists: E0001E01.SMI to E0099E01.SMI
When you record or create clips and clip lists, you
can assign user-defined names instead of the
standard format names. Assigning meaningful
names to clips and clip lists can facilitate file
management.
Limitations
• Letters, numbers and symbols from the Unicode
2.0 character set can be used.
However, the following control characters and
symbols cannot be used.
- Control characters: U+0000 to U+001F,
U+007F
- Symbols: ", *, /, :, <, >, ?, \, |
• Depending on the character type, the length of

characters. (The limit for ASCII characters is 56
characters.)
• All file name extensions are converted
automatically to uppercase.
• Titles are used as user-defined clip names on
this unit. Therefore, the available characters are
limited to those supported by the title function.
