    QT export file name lenght limited to 27 characters

    Exporting sequences with names longer than 27 characters, Avid truncates the name.  Has anyone got a work around to force it to pickup more.  Bare in mind we're talking AUTOMATED exports to FlipFactory monitored folders here so manually inputing or changing filenames is not possible.

    It isn't possible, since you have a fully automated process.  The "workaround" is to use names less than 27 characters long.

    If your process wasn't fully automated I'd suggest exporting to an intermediate folder, rename the exported file, then move it the watched folder.

    Well that's anoying.  I suspect the reason it does this is tied to seq/bin name limits for legacy project sharing.  like the code that governs that is used for the export paturn.  Might have to get a code monkey to look at this.  changing our FNC is really not on the cards. 

    Thanks tho.
