It's imperative that each show utilize a uniform naming convention for their shots, but not every show is the same, so Marvin lets you specify the formats that you use.
After entering your sample data, check the breakdown results area to confirm that the marker information (plate name, shot id, and description) was correctly parsed.

delimiter or characters ... which is right for you?
Default options are provided:
- Choose delimiter if you consistently add a specific symbol between shot ids and descriptions, such as a hyphen, colon, or space.
- Choose characters if everything after the last character of a shot id should be considered the description.
Select Other... to use a custom spacer.
