rename posters and banners

Post by HtRabbit »

I am trying to rename posters and banners in the main folder with the movie but it appears i am not smarter than a 5th grader
here is what i have for the format in the gui

Code: Select all

T:/new/{fn.contains('3D') || fn.contains('3-D')|| fn.contains('3d') ? "3D\\":"Movies\\"}{def n0 = any{collection}{n}.sortName().charAt(0); n0.isDigit() ? "0-9\\" : "$n0\\"}{("$collection\\").replace(':',' ').replaceAll(/[?]/, '')}{(n ?: n).replace(':',' ').replaceAll(/[?]/, '')} {' [' + fn.matchAll(/uncensored|remastered|unrated|extended|special edition/)*.upperInitial()*.lowerTrail().sort().join(', ') + ']'} [{y}]\{def n0 = any{(n).replace(':',' ').replaceAll(/[?]/, '')}{n}?: "$n0\\"}{fn.contains('3D') || fn.contains('3-D')|| fn.contains('3d') ? "3D":""}{'.3D'+fn.matchAll(/sbs|tab/)*.upper().sort().join(', ')}{' [' + fn.matchAll(/uncensored|remastered|unrated|extended|special edition/)*.upperInitial()*.lowerTrail().sort().join(', ') + ']'} [{y}] {fn.contains('2160p')? "2160p":""} [ID IMDB {imdbid}]{fn.contains('trl') || fn.contains('Trailer')|| fn.contains('Official')|| fn.contains('trailer') ? '-'+'trailer':""}{if (ext =~ /jpg|png|gif/)'.'+fn.match(/(banner|videoimage|wide|fanart|poster)$/)}{any{subt}{f.subtitle ? fn =~ /forced/ ? '.eng.forced' : '.eng' : null}}
here is the output,
it does not seem to grab the .png or the .jpg files

Can you provide screenshots and sample file paths so that we can see and understand your use case?


In general, processing companion files is somewhat limited to processing them alongside their primary video file:

You maybe able to use Plain File Mode for generic batch rename tasks.

There 2 types of companion files:
viewtopic.php?t=12172



1. Companion files that are well-named and linked to a corresponding video files by file name are matched to the same Episode or Movie object and then the rest is up to your custom format:

If companion files are derived-by-name and thus linked-by-name to the corresponding primary media file, then FileBot will automatically match them to the the same Movie or Episode object:

Code: Select all

Avatar.mp4
Avatar.xml
Avatar-poster.jpg
:arrow: Using {ny} as format:

Code: Select all

{ny}

Code: Select all

Avatar (2009).mp4
Avatar (2009).xml
Avatar (2009).jpg

:idea: In this case, companion files are matched to the same Movie or Episode object as the primary media file, and so the format will likely produce the same destination path for each file. If you want to preserve custom tags, then you may need to copy them over from the original file path.

:arrow: Adding fn.match() to the format:

Code: Select all

{ny}{'.'+fn.match('poster')}

Code: Select all

Avatar (2009).mp4
Avatar (2009).xml
Avatar (2009).poster.jpg


2. Companion files that are not well-named cannot be processed, but FileBot can help you copy them along:

Alternatively, you can also use the Import companion files post-processing feature to simply copy along any files or folders that were left behind in the original folder:

:arrow: That said, if it's just artwork and nfo files, then I would leave all the clutter behind, and generate new artwork and nfo files from scratch via the Fetch artwork post-processing action. That's the easy way.

:arrow: If you must process the extra files that you already have, then you may need to pre-process the file names first, e.g. rename banner.png to the.matrix-banner.png so that it matches the the.matrix.mkv by name. The Rename subtitle files to match the name of a nearby video file use case is effectively that. You just have to adapt it for image files.
