Using the Import Cut tool when CutItems link to a Custom Entity

I’m in the process of setting up a project in Shotgun where the production team has decided to track Previz Shots using a Custom Entity, in this case, CustomEntity12.

Previz shots match the pattern r’[A-Z]{2}[0-9]{4}’, and production shots match the pattern r’[A-Z]{3}[0-9]{4}’. Does anyone know of a way to modify the Import Cut tool such that it does a pattern match on the incoming EDL and links CutItems to a specific entity based on which pattern it matches?



Hey @nedwilson and welcome to the forum!

I’m not aware of a way to do that with the Import Cut App. I’ve heard that a few have done some modifications, but haven’t seen myself and it’s not officially supported.

I moved your post over to the #shotgun to get more eyes on it. Maybe someone will have a suggestion in this area! :crossed_fingers:
