Understanding Our Clip Naming Convention

Explanation of our easy to follow individual file name structure.

Our file names contain 3 fields describing the type of footage in the following category.

video clip naming convention

Our clip name prefix provides you with two visual attributes about the clip. First the time of day the clip was photographed and then whether the clip is in real-time or time-lapse.


The second field in our clip/file name tells you either the general location of the shot or the location the shot was photographed from.

Elysian Park, Pershing Square, Park Plaza, 110 Freeway, etc.

The third field is the number of the clip in the collection based on the time of day (night, day & magic hour) and the type of clip (real-time or time-lapse)

Our clip naming convention matches our actual file name used for delivery to you.
