Apparent Bug: Binding references 'vc' and 'vcf' not behaving as expected

Context: I have 2 versions of the same movie (Interstellar). One is 1080p/x264/AVC, and the other is 4K/x265/HEVC. I'm trying to use the following format on these two files, but behavior is unexpected:

Code: Select all

Expected behavior: I expect the files to be renamed as follows:
  • Interstellar.2014.1080p.x264-AVC
  • Interstellar.2014.2160p.x265-HEVC
In other words, I would expect x264/x265 to come from the 'vc' reference, and AVC/HEVC to come from the 'vcf' reference

Actual behavior:
  • The following error is thrown for "vcf" property - "groovy.lang.MissingPropertyException: No such property: vcf for class: Script 156
  • File 1 resulting name is "Interstellar.2014.1080p.x264
  • File 2 resulting name is "Interstellar.2014.2160p.HEVC
In other words, x264 and HEVC come from the 'vc' reference (problem 1), and the 'vcf' reference fails completely (problem 2)

What does the raw MediaInfo say for these files?

:idea: {vc} is derived from one of the following MediaInfo video properties, in order of priority, whichever is available:

Code: Select all

"Encoded_Library_Name", "Encoded_Library/Name", "CodecID/Hint", "Format"

{vcf} as added rather recently so you might need the latest beta.

:idea: Note that vcf is just a convenience alias for video[0].Format which will work with any version of FileBot:

Code: Select all

{ video[0].Format }
:idea: Please read the FAQ and How to Request Help.
