    List Tool - Add Custom Columns

    As an assistant it would save me countless hours if we were able to add custom columns to the list tool.

     

    For example, I am currently trying to track music, and I have a column for the below:

    Media Type (eg. Commercial Music)

    File Format (eg. MP3)

    Artist (eg. Michael Jackson)

    Song (eg Thriller)

    Album (eg Thriller)

     

    I am constantly having to go in and create my own lists of these and i'm losing hours so I can pass them to the music supervisor through jobs.  It would be a thirty second job if I could create a list within list tool.

     

    Is there any chance this feature could be added please?

    As an editor I'm telling You that if the goal is to output track lists You can create as many custom bin columns as You like, fill them in with the required info, and export to ALE. Custom bin views can be saved in order to save countless hours. HTH

    Re: List Tool - Add Custom Columns

    Hi All,

     

    Thanks for your responses on this.

     

    I am using music lists as an example.  Have tried using ALEs but often people want Start TC and Out TC for Durations.

     

    What would be extremely helpful is for the list tool to offer

    Start TC (it already does)

    Out TC (It already does)

    and any number of Custom Columns

     

    This way I could do music lists by combining the meta data I already add (EG. Track Name, Artist, Album)

    I could also do quick and easy archive lists by using the same method

    Potentially I could do quick export for scene logs as well if we added scene descriptions to the meta data.

     

    Would save us hours of time.
