How Do I Create a Filename as Date-Timestamp Rule?

Post by gcoupe » 23 Sep 12 10:59

So I'm trying to recreate a Rename Rule in the Batch feature of PS.

In IDI, I used A Rule like this:

Image

In PS, I don't see how to include the "-" character in the Rename Rule when building the Rule in the Design view... So what I did was switch to the "Text" view of the rule in IDI, and Copy/paste into the Text view of the Rule in PS...

Image

However, in IDI, there is also a "Settings" tab for the Rule - and that has an "Always make file names unique" checkbox. There does not seem to be an equivalent Settings tab in PS. I rely on that setting to ensure that multiple shots taken in a one second period are given unique names.

How can I do this?

Thanks.

Geoff,

You can Press the <Insert> key on the keyboard to add a new free text segment.

In PSU the file naming is always defined to create unique file names

You could also go to the text Tab in V5

Select and copy the text

Go to Text in Supreme

Paste the text

Brilliant - I laughed out loud at that one - especially after the last few matches in the T20 World Cup

Is this working? I deliberately shot a series of action shots (i.e. several shots per second).
Only the first shot in a period of one second got ingested; the rest remained on the camera memory card.

e.g. I took 8 shots spanning three seconds. I ended up with one shot from the first second, one shot from the second second, and one shot from the third second. The other five were left on the memory card and not ingested...

Thank you
