Album Publishing - Destination Folders?

Postby fl » Thu Jun 25, 2015 15:59

On page 561 of the manual, regarding the Wildcard Tag file naming of the published files, the suggestion is made that including the <FileFormat> tag will enable the automatic creation of sub-folders, one for each of the selected output formats.

Has anyone got this to work?

When I include that tag, the output files are named accordingly, but no sub-folder is created, and I have to move things around manually. This is not a huge deal breaker, but along with having to set up the destination for the MTFF file in the Generate CD/SACD window, and change the Published File destination in the Album Publishing window (which I always forget to to, and which is a global setting rather than one associated with each individual Project so that the destination is always set to the most recent destination chosen from any project), it's a finicky process, and it would be nice if it could be simplified.

Yes you can!

If you use the backslash it will create a folder like so:

ProjectName_<FileFormat>\##_EnterYourNameHere

Will create a folder named anything you like including the file format.

Definitely more "hidden until you try long enough" than "automatically", but it works! :D

Well, thank you very much for that. I never would have figured that out in a million years, as any time I've tried to incorporate file tree information in a file naming entry field, horrible things have happened.

The "\" will also work in DiskWrite, when you choose to use, or re-use an MTFF file to publish files.
