Multi channel EXR channel selection

Is there any way to be selective on what channels you bring in when importing a multi channel CG render?
I’m finding that there are many channels I don’t need.
So other than importing them individually, I’ll like to just turn some off on import.

You can look into the multichannel rules:


However, it looks like this behaviour is only available in 2023, I’m still on 2022.

If you select tiles in the Media Hub and double click on the “multi” icon on the thumbnail, it will separate all the channels and you can pick and choose what to import, but will need to recombine them after you import if you want to retain the features of a multichannel clip.


You can also turn off which channels you don’t want to see in batch.

It’s more a case of only caching selected channels.
