DCNC - Appendix #3 - Content Type and Version Number
The Content Type and Version field is the area of the Naming Convention that identifies what type of content the DCP contains — whether it’s a feature, a trailer, a short subject, etc. — and what the version number is. The field can contain up to 7 characters. All content should be categorized as one of the following:
In the Composition Playlist
The Content Type is listed at //ContentKind:
If the scope attribute is absent, the permissible SMPTE 429-7 ContentKind values are as follows: “feature”, “trailer”, “teaser”, “test”, “rating”, “advertisement”, “short”, “transitional”, “psa”, and “policy”. If the scope attribute is present and set to “http://www.smpte–ra.org/schemas/429-16/2014/CPL-Metadata#scope/content-kind”, the permissible SMPTE ST 429-16 ContentKind values are as follows: “clip”, “promo” and “stereocard.” See the specification for details.
It’s important to add a version number after the Content Type code. For example, feature version 2 would be “FTR-2”, etc. This is important not only for selecting the correct version, but also for matching an “OV” with a “VF” version file. (See Appendix #8.) The Content Type field can also be expanded to add 2D or 3D identifiers. (See Appendix #3a.)
After the Content Type and Version number in the Content Type Field, you may add further descriptions or “Content Type Modifiers” in sub-fields separated by hyphens.
For example: POL-1-Temp-RedBand-TheatreChain-3D-6fl-48
These are used “a la carte” only if needed, and must be used in this order with these values:
