Help Tweak Naming for my 'Various Artists' and 'Soundtracks'

#1

Hi all, fishing for a little tweaking help to my naming script…

Currently my script is giving me following structure.
[Various Artists] \ _Compilations \ Various Artists - %album% (year)

Would like it to be just:
[Various Artists] \ %album% (year)

Also would like albums with %releasetype% = soundtrack to be moved to the named folder:
[OMP Soundtracks] \ %album% (year)

Below is current Script, Really would appreciate a hand after pulling my hair out for couple hours.:grimacing:

$if(%originalyear%, $set(_year,%originalyear%))
$if($not(%_year%), $set(_year,$left(%date%,4)))
$if($eq(%albumartist%,Various Artists),
$set(_albumartist,[Various Artists]),
$set(_albumartist,%albumartist%)
)

$if2(%_albumartist%,%artist%)
/
$if($in(%releasetype%,single),_Singles/)
$if($in(%releasetype%,ep),_EPs/)
$if($in(%releasetype%,live),_Live-Albums/)
$if($in(%releasetype%,compilation),_Compilations/)
$if($ne(%albumartist%,),%albumartist% - %album% (%_year%)/,)
$if($gt(%totaldiscs%,1),%discnumber%-,)
$num(%tracknumber%,2). %artist% - %title%
