[ENHANCEMENT] Adding "do not reimport" option in the voice-over & rename the voice-over.

I suggest to have the option not to reimport the voice over into HitFilm.

Also, the ability to rename the voice-over before exporting it would be useful to avoid confusion with the exported files.

    Could you clarify what you mean by "not to reimport the voice over"? Do you mean to not import it back into the media panel and timeline?

    @TheBenNorris Exactly!

    Because when it reimports it to the project, I can't change the destination of the recorded audio file, if I want to do so, I will have to remove it from the project to rename it and change the file location. Therefore, it is easier to have this option to give more flexibility.

    @mabdelbary I do note in Preferences you can change the folder the VO is recorded to.

    @Triem23 Yes I know, but when you do the voice over it automatically goes to this folder.

    In case I want to move it to a different folder per project either I will change it in the preference each time per project, or the easier option is to have the ability to choose where to save it and rename it each time I finish recording. This is faster in my opinion.

    Regarding having the checkbox that I can select not to reimport each recording I do, that will allow me to move the file even when I am still working on HitFilm without the necessity to delete it from the project (because I can't move it when HitFilm is open) then move it wherever I want.

    It is similar to export frame feature, it gives more accessibility this way.

    Thanks for your reply!!
