chops: extracting camera name from .clip

Recommended Posts


I am loading a .clip through a file chop. I have a bunch of channels named Camera01:tx Camera01:ty Camera01:tz etc.

After the file chop I have a math chop that scales down the translate channels with this scope: Camera01:t? (this is not a question)

When I load a new file chop like Camera02.clip, all of my channels are now Camera02:tx Camera02:ty Camera02:tz etc.

I have to go back in the math chop and manually change the Camera01:t? to be Camera02:t? (still not a question)

my question:

is there any way to extract the Camera01 or Camera02 part from the .clip file in chops (like from a channel in the .clip file)?

I am hoping to have my math chop scope looking something like: `MagicalExpression`:t?

Thanks for reading
