Hello SideFX forum folks,

Is there a way batch rename all joints in an imported fbx rig? What I'm looking to do is trim the "f_med_nrw_body_" string from the joints, and the only way that I've seen to do this is manually via a Skeleton SOP.

Ideally, I'd like a workflow where I can specify: 1. what to remove and 2. what to replace with ( which would be nothing in this use case ). This is essentially the "Naming Tool" from C4D, where you can specify Replace + With

Thanks for your time.
Mark

Hey tamte,

Thank you so much for the response! I didn't know that SOP node existed till now. Works just like I needed too.

For anyone else wondering specifically,

1. In the Attributes tab, specify name for "Points" attribute
2. In the Editor tab, toggle on Use Regular Expressions + type in the string your looking to replace in From. In my case, I left To blank since I wanted to trim.
