merge tool batch merge files & and make it different process

by TomVR » Tue Aug 16, 2016 7:15 pm

It's really tedious to manually merge each set of cameras. Is there no way to build the tool to automatically find the GO/GP file names and pair them. Point the tool at the gopro's .MP4 directory and batch merges all the files and adds a prefix to them (Cam1_, Cam2, etc etc)

Right now there is no way to batch merge in the background while working on other shots. The tool should be a separate EXE so it doesn't interfere with working on a shot in AVP.

Hi,

No there is no such tool at the moment.

I don't really get your request here.

There are actually 2 tools to merge files :
* The basic merger : Tools -> Merge video files : this requires to sort your files manually as it does not take file naming of anything into account. It just merges videos.
* The go pro importer : File -> Import all GoPros : this handles data management as well as merging files when they need to be merged. For that tool to work, simply plug your SD cards to your computer and launch AVP, click on File > Import all GoPros.

Best,

Claire

merge tool is a window with-in the program. You can not use AVP the same time you are using the merge tool.

The merge tool should be it's own process or program so it doesn't interfere with running AVP.
