There is no sorting in the render cue or in the Adobe Media Encoder's cue. The best option you can adopt is to establish naming conventions that you follow through all of your production pipeline. I've worked on projects with about a hundred artists all over the country creating each piece and the production bible supplied to all of us gave specific instructions on file naming and folder structure that starts with the shooting script, moves on to the set with the slate and continues to the mixing studio with the last pass of the audio mix. It's the only way to keep track of a large production and it works just as well when for a :30 tv spot.
You could submit a Feature Request/Bug Report Form - Adobe
thank you. I was not clear. My issue is not the naming conventions of the animations, but that when I add a comp to the render cue I have to scroll down to modify the output and render templates. I was just trying to save a bit of time as I fly thru building animations while I cut.
Hearing that the list can not be sorted newest first answers my question.
Although I am sure there is a hack to be made that would put new comps on the top of the list in the code. Having said that there are much more dynamic feature request that should hold top slots on feature requests.
You can set the default output module settings by editing the output module settings under the edit menu (Edit>Templates>Output Module). You can make your own and you can set any save one as the default.
Currently I have the output module set to a 32bit Tiff sequence. Tomorrow I may set the default to EXR or ProRez 444 with alpha. It all depends on the projects I'm working on. It takes about 2 seconds to change the default. Once changed every new project you add to the Output Module will be rendered with those settings.
wow, clearly I am losing my ability to be clear. Output and Render modules I get it. I have them use them. I have many depending on the situation.
How do I end this? No sorting the render cue window to put new comps on top - I get it.
