Edit: All issues with the renaming string have been resolved. I have found it necessary to restart picard and explorer.exe periodically. Now on to learning what I need to know about the scripting.
Edit: This is my latest string: Most issues have been resolved after experimenting. I shall return.
/%albumartist%/%album%/%albumartist% - %album% - %discnumber% - $num(%tracknumber%,2) - %title%
The Examples box below states the resulting name will be:
D:\Music\The Beatles - 1 - 07 - Ticket to Ride.mp3
The rename event results indicate %artist% is used and no padding is added on %tracknumber%:
D:\Music\The Beatles Feat. Big Star - 1 - 7 - Ticket to Ride.mp3
So my explorer windows is like this:
In my tags over the years I forced myself to use a single artist name in the %albumartist% field,
and the longer, more specific artist featuring and/or starring name in the %artist% field for a cleaner
windows explorer experience. Often the listening experience begins in explorer before transitioning to Media Monkey or PotPlayer.
This is my first month into Picard transitioning from Mp3Tag. How does the experienced Picard user modify this string to accomplish the goal?
