Apply Post-Processing Features via Rename

(requires FileBot r7504 or higher) Some post-processing features can be enabled for newly renamed files via Image Renaming SettingsImage Apply.

Apply Post-Processing Features via Filter

Some post-processing features can be applied to an existing set of files via AttributesImage Apply assuming that xattr metadata is readily available.

Apply Post-Processing Features via the --apply option from Terminal

--apply can be added to -rename and -mediainfo calls to enable common post-processing tasks for newly renamed files.

e.g.

Code: Select all

--apply artwork nfo url metadata


ARTWORK
Fetch series / movie artwork for newly added files:

Code: Select all

--apply artwork
:idea: The --apply artwork cover nfo url post-processing features assume a {plex} compatible folder structure.


COVER
Fetch folder.jpg files for newly added series / movie folders:

Code: Select all

--apply cover

NFO
Generate *.nfo files for series / movie folders:

Code: Select all

--apply nfo

URL
Generate *.url files for movie folders:

Code: Select all

--apply url

SUBTITLES
Fetch subtitles in the preferred language:

--apply subtitles

METADATA
Generate hidden .xattr folders with xattr metadata in plain file format:

:idea: The FileBot Xattr Metadata Scanners & Plug-ins for Plex uses .xattr folders to avoid cross-platform and cross-device limitations of native filesystem xattr. (e.g. network shares, FAT filesystem, etc)

Code: Select all

--apply date

Code: Select all
