I wrote this a long time ago for myself but thought I’d clean it up a bit and shove it somewhere in case someone else finds it useful.
I get a lot of AAFs from Avid, which always tacks its “.Exported.01” garbage onto the end of the sequence names. This just renames your sequences to remove it so you don’t have to manually rename a dozen sequences one by one yourself.
/opt/Autodesk/shared/python/ and use by selecting a library, reel, or folder containing sequences (or manually select any individual sequences), right-click and go to
Project Tools > Strip Avid Crap.
Note that it only goes 1 level deep so it won’t go crazy if accidentally let loose on a library; That is, the sequences must be in the root level of the selected library/reel/folder.
