    Renamed Matte Key clips not updating in Sequence

    I just encountered one of those things that made me say "has it always done that? or is it a bug?"

    I had a graphic with Alpha from After Effects in my SEQ (we'll call it GFX_v02) I got a new version from the person who made it (GFX_v03), so I went to the Bin where GFX_v02 lives and chose to Batch Import. I pointed to GFX_v03 and it updated visually in the SEQ. So far, so good.

    But, I decided to rename the GFX_v02 clip in the Bin to reflect that it was now the new GFX_v03 (organizational thing). The change was made in the Bin, but the clip in the SEQ still says GFX_v02. Loading the clip into the Source it is named Matte Key: GFX_v03 but, when I cut it into the Seq to replace the clip, the name stays as GFX_v02. 

    Other clips that I rename in the Bin (non Matte Key) reflect the name change in the Bin and Seq, so it seems that it is an issue with Matte Keys.

    Has anyone else seen this behavior?

    This is on v6.5.4.2

    Yes, I have seen this as well.  I think it works that way for titles you change the name on as well.

    I think it's been reported but will double-check.

    Switch the Bin Display to show reference clips and rename the matte key reference files and then it will show up in your sequence. Same for Titles.

    This is incorrect.

    You need to change the bin display to show the precomputes for the titles and mattes, then rename both clips to the same name and reset bin display to not show precomputes.

    ...reference clips have nothing to do with this.

    This was clearly a typo.

    Yes, it has always done that. I learned that trick 20 years ago!
