More specific clip names

It'd be helpful if the names generated for clips were more specific/distinguishable.

Currently, all my audio clips share the same name - the name of the mic used to make the recordings. There is no way to distinguish them.

All the video clips share the name "Screen Recording m/d/y" which is not helpful when you're recording many clips in the same day - there is no way to distinguish them.

    Currently, you can select the clip name and rename each clip after recording.

    Developers would like to know how should the clips be named automatically to avoid confusion.

  • You can rename the clips, yes, but that can be tedious.

     

    To make the clip names unique, you could add the hour, minute, seconds

    Before: "Screen Recording m/d/y "

    After: "Screen Recording m/d/y h:m:s"

     

    Or some auto-incrementing value:

    "Screen Recording m/d/y  1"

    "Screen Recording m/d/y  2"

    "Screen Recording m/d/y  3"

     

    Very similar to new files work in other programs. If I create one new file, it's called "Untitled"; if I create another one it's called "Untitled 1", then "Untitled 2", etc.

     

    You're already doing something similar to the above with the underlying clip files. For example, I see file names like "Recording-2021-04-21-155336.scc" (Year, month, day, time)

    It'd be super helpful if the clips in my media manager just matched those names.

  • Totally agree with a simple automatic system of Naming Clips & Associating them with Audio. See how Logic Pro X assigns automatically a name & number to each clip - it is not rocket science.

  • Most screen recording applications already have an automatic naming system built-in. Including the native macOS screen recorder.

    It would help to have this in ScreenFlow.

    Here is how CleanShot X (a ScreenFlow competitor in many ways) does it:
