In our Naming convention we refer to Scenes rather then Sequences. I tried turning on "use Scenes" but that seems to be an addon field and not a replacement for Sequences right ? So my try was simply editing the displayname for Sequences in the prefs. That works for some things (Add Tooltip says "New scene" and when there is no Sequence it says "Learn how to create a Scene") but the header and navigation Links still show "sequences"
You can rename entities as you figured out, but you are right there are some places that don't get renamed automatically. For most entities, that is the main field for the entity, such as Sequence Code. To edit that, go to the Fields page in the Admin area, find that field, then click the pencil next to the name and edit.
However, Sequence and Scene are special and have extra UI in places that have some loose ends when renaming. That nav area is one. I'd recommend instead turning OFF the Sequence entity and turning ON the Scene entity. You can do that in the site prefs (http://*.shotgunstudio.com/preferences docs here). Then you'll want to make two other changes:
- Turn the preference called "navigate_shots_by_scene" to "yes". This updates the nav widget on the shots pages to look for scenes instead of sequences.
- Turn the preference called "summarize_shot_statuses_to_scene" to "yes". This causes our task status summary fields to work on Scenes.
That should do it. We will work to automate this as we continue to polish and refactor how the Entities and their names work.
