This menu allows you to change the unit name for your NINJA V. It also gives you the ability to dictate the scene and shot number that will be recorded.
Creating a unique name for each NINJA V you are using can be very useful when using multiple devices or with multicam shoots.
The unit name serves two main purposes:
Drive Naming: Giving the unit a unique name aids with identification. Once you have given it a name all drives subsequently formatted in the NINJA V will bear this name as a prefix. By default, the unit will be named
File Naming: The current unit name appears at the start of the recorded clip name:
Use the arrow icons to select a letter in the current unit name. The selected letter will appear at the Letter setting.
- / +:
Use these icons to move forward or backwards through the letters of the alphabet. Doing so will update the letter you selected with the arrows in the Unit Name setting.
Allows you to adjust the Scene number that will form part of the recorded clip filename:
- / +:
Use these icons to increase or decrease the numerical value for the Scene number up to 999. The value you select will be shown in the file name at the top of the screen during recording,
Allows you to adjust the Shot number that will form part of the recorded clip filename:
- / +:
Use these icons to increase or decrease the numerical value for the Shot number.
Takes that form part of the filename are automated:
Tap to cycle through the file naming format options:
Scene/shot/take: Allows you to accurately name planned shots as if you were using a conventional slate.
Rolling scene/shot/take: Adds the ability to maintain continuous rolling file naming and take counts after re-formatting a drive.
Red/Arri: Selecting this option will allow your recordings to use the same name as the files recorded in camera.
Red/ Arri file naming is only supported when the signal is connected via SDI to the AtomX SDI Module or the ATOMOS CONNECT accessory. For more information refer to the Mode section and ATOMOS CONNECT Connections sections.
