Renaming Bug

Postby jameschristie » Sun Jul 04, 2021 9:24 pm

Had a look to see if anyone had posted about this before but couldn’t find it.

I am connecting a canon 1DX mkii and mkiii to ShutterSnitch at the same time. The files imported from the mkii have .CR2 extension and mkiii has .CR3

The problems arise when I run an action on import to rename the files with a unique number.(or to rename them at any point actually). When the app renames the file it checks the collection for those already renamed and then renames the file adding 1 to the unique number. The issue is it includes the extension in this check. So I end up with files named the same “renamed0001.CR2” and “renamed0001.CR3”. This then causes issues as it only creates 1 file for adjustments and metadata. So changing them (cropping etc) for one photo changes for the other.

just to add it's not the differing file extensions that is causing the bug as I transferred jpeg only and it's still renaming files from the two different cameras the same. I just transferred 1 jpg from the 1dx mark ii and 3 from the 1dx mark iii. after renaming all the files with an action I was left with

from 1dx mark iii
rename0001.jpg
rename0002.jpg
rename0003.jpg

from 1dx mark ii
rename0001.jpg

I’m confused - wouldn’t the first rename0001.jpg have been overwritten then? Or is there a different case character in there somewhere?

Or perhaps the Directory Structure setting on your WFT is set to ‘Camera’, in which case the files will be uploaded to different paths - which will mess with the renaming. (If so, make sure you set Directory Structure to ‘Default’.
