Filter the list of items by searching text in the file paths or the assigned tags.
The filter also accepts a regular expression input:
You can even separate multiple terms by comma to search the tags of the list items.
To preview what the elements you want to ingest look like the software generates a temp preview. These are not the proxies from the Gallery View.
By default the software tries to detect everything as file sequences. In some cases the files may have a sequential naming but are actually individual frames (img_0001.jpg, img_0002.jpg, …).
Each time you click “ingest elements“ a log file is saved to disk. These are simple text files (CSV) that you can use to restore the ingest list again anytime you like. It will populate the ingest list with all file paths and the category and tags that were set.
path;category;tags /mnt/server/some/folder/files.1-120#.exr;Q327954;Q327954,fire,custom tags /mnt/server/some/other-folder/other-files.mov;Q327954;Q327954,fire,something,foo,bar
These CSV files are very helpful if you want to batch import new elements with predefined tags and categories.
