I've got one 5 minute shot (in the Capture Scratch).


On a sequence timeline I've cut it into a dozen separate clips, to which I've added color grading and effects.


I want to batch export those separate clips (pulled from the one original media clip).  But of course, just putting those new short clips in a folder and doing a batch export - all the clips have the same name, naturally, and FCP will export the entire long original media clip every time.  Not what I want.


If I try to change the names of the short clips in the folder, nope, change one and they all change.


I seem to remember having done this before ... and that there is a trick to batch exporting out all these separate short clips pulled from one long clip.


Any suggestions would be most appreciated ...
