Hey everyone, new user to the platform after a colleague suggested I give it a go. Been having fun with the keystroke type macros but struggling with word based macros. I'm sure this will be a doddle for some of you.
I work as an assistant video editor and often we have to rename clips or just delete added characters the software adds automatically after doing a process.
My example is this:
In the software when creating a particular type of clip the software will rename the clip like this:
1-17-22-3b (this is the original)
1-17-22-3b.sub.01 (this is the newly created file within the software with new addition)
I would love a quick and simple macro that basically just delete the '.sub.01' addition.
I would need it to be applied within the software, i wont be able to do it through finder as this data isn't stored anywhere remotely simple to access. I have had a look in the forum but everyones queries tend to be far more complex.
Thanks so much for any help.
