Path example is


The pattern browsing I am trying is


Thanks is advance


It’s a little tricky to diagnose, but your pattern seems like it should be working. I recreated this folder structure and tried with the same pattern and got it to work.

Are you scanning from the /Emi-102-226-0200 folder?

Yeah …… I was thinking do I need to do the frame padding!

If its an image sequence then yes you’ll need to put in a token for the frames. It would be


I am still struggling to get this to work here is the actual file path

Any help much appreciated

in your screenshot pattern browsing is disabled ? :smiley:


this worked for me to pull 3 versions. I was assuming
comp-render should be part of the clipname, I was having issues pulling diofferent versions from your original pattern for some reason. I dont know WHY though but it only finds v1 with your pattern if I remove comp-render it just works … also if I replace comp-render with a token like {artist}-{task} then it pulls the comp and render into metadata for artist and task and it works fine again.

rendered 3 exr sequences to here:


and then browsed from the Emi-102-226-0200 directory

Running flame version 2022 on Mac. When I change to shotname it flags an error stating you need name token to get multiple version

Yeah your test pattern is the same …… but this just won’t work on this flame. So frustrating as it should work

make sure you check if its -version or _version

Yeah it’s the _version just tricky to type that on my phone

Not sure if you’ve retyped it since posting this screenshot, but it looks like you have a square bracket ( ] ) at the end of version instead of a brace ( } ).

I’ve definitely been tripped up on that a few times.
