Anyone got a snippet for prefixing all bitmap names?
show user profile  jpedleham
Hi, Im looking for a snippet of code to loop through all assets in the asset tracking dialog and add a prefix to each file name. Ive tried universal renamer but it just crashes max every time unfortunately.
Can anyone help?

i use this. ever so simple, but passed onto me by a Chinese colleague, so the wording might be different. but works a treat and ever so straight forward. batch name changes any field.

Thanks for that, i may not have explained myself well.
The actual files have already been prefixed, i just need to update the bitmap paths in max so that it finds the prefixed file rather than looking for the non prefixed file. Essentially instead of having to manually right click > set path and then add the prefix manually, im looking for something that does that for all bitmaps.
