NC file names posted from Sync Manager

Hello

I would like to ask if there is any way to change way of naming NC files post-processed in Sync Manager.

 

By default it outputs:

myname_channel_1.ptp
myname_channel_2.ptp

 

I would like to have:

myname_K1
myname_K2
(without any file extension)

With enough tcl magic should be able to be done.

Another option is to just (after sync manager is done) copy them to the file names you want (and leave the originals alone).

Neither pops up in the info window in sync manager mode - so moving or renaming or setting the output file path in tcl are all possible. Sync manager run through on the post is separate for each channel - so it posts once completely for each side.

Thank you

If there is no option designed to do that, I think the easiest (and safest) way is to let postprocessor make a copy of files and rename it automatically.
