Modifying a category?

Post by phototaker » Mon Nov 02, 2015 4:47 am

Is there any way where I can select a category like video & add special extra file extension that are created by my editing software? For instance Vegas VideoPro created files for audio & other temp file.

If so how is this done? Can I see what extensions are used currently used in each other category?

Thanks in advance

To create a new Vegas VideoPro filter:
  • In "Everything", from the Search menu, click Organize filters....
  • Click New.
  • Type in a name, eg: Vegas VideoPro
  • Change the search to:

    Code: Select all

    ext:m2ts;mov;mp4;mts;prproj;aa3;at3;cpi;fcpxml;mxf;sfk;sfl;vf
    This is an extension list, you can add your own extensions.
    Each extension is separated by a semicolon (;).
    The extension list should start with ext:
  • Click OK.
  • Click OK.
Filters can be accessed from the filter bar, right clicking the status bar, from the Search menu, from a keyboard shortcut or a filter macro.

To show the filter bar:
  • In "Everything", from the View menu, click Filters.
Can I see what extensions are used currently used in each other category?
To see what extensions are used by the default filters:
  • In "Everything", from the Search menu, click Organize filters....
  • Select a filter, eg: Video.
  • Click Edit.
  • The extension list is shown in the search box.
  • Click Cancel.
  • Click Cancel.
