Re: How to create exception rules for file extensions

Jump to solution

@chealey Yeah, I'm aware of the character limits after reading somewhere on McAfee website. Funnily enough, I could configure successfully with file extensions exceeding 3 characters. See the screenshot for details.

Re: How to create exception rules for file extensions

Hi @sanba06c,

Kindly please bear with us while we verify this 3 character limit for ENS and get back to you on the same.

This would however hold true for VSE, more details below:

  • There is a three-character limit to excluded File Type extensions.
  • The three-letter extension limitation is automatically enforced when you enter the extension to exclude.
  • All files with extensions starting with SRT are excluded despite the three-character limitation. In this example, it includes .SRTT and .SRTS.

However, for ENS, we are confirming the same internally and we will get back to you with an update on the same. Kudos to you for sharing us the screengrab for reference!
