Newbie needs a simple file naming script

Hello, Forum,

The more I use MusicBrainz Picard the more impressed I am in the power it holds. Very impressive.

THough, I’m a moron when it comes to any type of coding. I just don’t have the brain for it.

I just need a simple file naming script like this: 01 - Long Shot - Bob Dylan.flac

It would be the track number, hyphen, Track name, artist

Can someone provide me the code to cut & paste into the MBP?

THanks in advance.

If I understand you correctly, the file naming script would be something like:

$num(%tracknumber%,2) - %title% - %artist%

For more information you might want to check out the Scripting section and Writing a File Naming Script tutorial in the on-line Picard User Guide.


Thank you! It worked!
