Presets

Post by rednoah »

Presets allow you to add customized buttons to FileBot so you can automatically select certain files and match them against a given database with predefined options, and save you a lot of click work.

Examples:
  1. Match files with TheTVDB using Absolute Episode Order and organize them according to the Plex naming scheme using Airdate Episode Order:

    Code: Select all

    {home}/Media/{order.airdate.plex}
    Image
  2. Select all media files that contain "Daily Show" (case-insensitive) in the file name and match them against TheTVDB:

  3. Select all media files that have Japanese audio and match them against AniDB using Japanese language preferences:

  4. Select all media files longer than 60 minutes that don't contain any SxE pattern in the file name and match them against TheMovieDB:

  5. If files are already tagged (e.g. via iTunes) then you can use a plain file format with MediaInfo bindings to instantly generate the destination path without any database lookup:

    Code: Select all

    {home}/Media/{media.Album}/Season {media.Season}/{media.Album} - {media.PartID} - {media.Title}
    Image
  6. Rename current selection of files and force Absolute Airdate Order to match by Airdate or Title but use {order.airdate.sxe} to force default SxE episode information in the final filename:

    Code: Select all

    {n} - {order.airdate.sxe} - {t}
    Image
  7. Rename photos and use Date-Taken and Camera Model as the new filename:

    Code: Select all

    {dt.format('yyyy-MM-dd HH∶mm∶ss')} [{camera.model}]
    Image
  8. Rename current selection of files and replace all non-ASCII characters with suitable ASCII equivalents, and replace all spaces with underscore:

  9. If FileBot does not recognized certain number or date patterns, just create a Preset for fixing that. For example, if date patterns like MM.DD.YY don't work, just replace MM.DD.YY with YYYY.MM.DD first and then the rest will just work.
