Rename PF

Version:

Date Updated:

Script to rename multiple operators Pflow at once.

- Put the name of the FX in the "prefix", select the operators to be renamed and click "Rename"
The script renames operators this way: prefix + operator name + number

- Function "Clear name":
If no text is present in the "Prefix" button clear name removes the entire name of the operator
If a text is present in the "Prefix" button clear name removes the prefix if it is present in the name of the operator

example:

"Prefix" FX_dust
Operator name: FX_dust_rotation_02
operator name after clear name: rotation_02

Version Requirement:

Hi !
Thanks Johnny.

I'm not sure PF Arrows could be rename, I'll try for the next version.
I keep aside your ideas for the next version.

Cool

Nice job :) Useful tool!

The only thing you miss in the name changes are PF Arrows and PF Engines both of which are system/event specific. You will get a conflict if you use it for preset flows and/or importing in new scenes that contain an existing pflow systems.

A couple ideas if you are interested. I would consider adding an option to rename dependent scene objects and move all hidden pflow helpers and/or dependent objects to a specified layer.
