Render tokens can be added to the File Name attribute in the Render Manager and used to automate the file names of renders.
To add a Render Token simply right click in the File Name input and select one from the drop down menu. Each token will appear between angle brackets e.g.
<token>.and be highlighted. Alternatively you can add tokens by manually typing them.
<Composition> the name of the composition.
<Scene> the name of your scene (e.g. name.cv)
<Project> the name of your Project. You must have a project set in Project Settings for this to work.
Frame Number - <
Frame> the frame
<FPS> the FPS (frames per second) of the Composition.
Render Format -
<Format> the format (.png, .jpg, .mov etc).
Dynamic Index -
<Dynamic> outputs the Dynamic Index for each dynamic render.
Date and Time -
Day (Name) -
<D> e.g. if the current day is Monday the token would output
Day of the Month (Number) -
<DD> e.g. if the current date is 11th August the token would output
Month (Number) -
<MM> e.g. if the current date is 11th August the token would output
Month (Name) -
<M> e.g. if the current date is 11th August the token would return
Month (Short Name) -
<m> e.g. if the current date is 11th August the token would return
Year (YYYY) -
<YYYY> e.g. if the current year is 2020 the token would output
Year (YY) -
<YY> e.g. if the current year is 2020 the token would output
Time (HH:MM) -
<T> e.g. if the current time is 5:15pm the token would output
Time Zone -
<TZ> e.g. if you are in Manchester, UK the token would output
<d>-<DD>-<m> e.g. if the current date is 11th August, 2020 the token would output
It's also possible to create custom time formats. For example
%Y - writes year as a decimal number, e.g. 2017%y - writes last 2 digits of year as a decimal number (range [00,99])%b - writes abbreviated month name, e.g. Oct%B - writes full month name, e.g. October%m - writes month as a decimal number (range [01,12])%V - **(C++11)**writes ISO 8601 week of the year (range [01,53]). In IS0 8601 weeks begin with Monday%j - writes day of the year as a decimal number (range [001,366])%d - writes day of the month as a decimal number (range [01,31])%a - writes abbreviated weekday name, e.g. Fri%A - writes full weekday name, e.g. Friday%u - writes weekday as a decimal number, where Monday is 1 (ISO 8601 format)%H - writes hour as a decimal number, 24 hour clock (range [00-23])%I - writes hour as a decimal number, 12 hour clock (range [01,12])%M - writes minute as a decimal number (range [00,59])%S - writes second as a decimal number (range [00,60])%c - writes standard date and time string, e.g. Sun Oct 17 04:41:13 2010%X - writes localised time representation, e.g. 18:40:20 or 6:40:20 PM%D - equivalent to %m/%d/%y%F - equivalent to %Y-%m-%d (the ISO 8601 date format)%r - writes localised 12-hour clock time%R - equivalent to %H:%M%T - equivalent to %H:%M:%S (the ISO 8601 time format)%p - writes localised a.m. or p.m.%z - writes offset from UTC in the ISO 8601 format (e.g. -0430)%Z - writes locale-dependent time zone name or abbreviation e.g BST.
