Output Naming, Original File Number

Hi,

I'm mostly a Lightroom user, but I'm thinking about switching to C1, mostly because of its tethering capabilities. Ideally, I'd like to stick with C1 for every job, not just tethered ones. I'm having an issue with output naming workflow though.

I'd like to find an equivalent to Lightroom's option to name exported files with custom text, and then the original number suffix. For example, if the raw file name is originally "_DSC1234.NEF" straight out of the camera, I'd like exported jpgs and tiffs to be named "JobName_1234.jpg". The closest I've been able to figure out is the Job Name and Image name tokens in C1, but that gives files like "JobName_DSC1234.jpg". Is there any way to cut out the DSC, and keep just the number suffix? I'm using version 6.2. Thanks a lot for your help!

no not possible. If you really want you could use Automator or AbetterFinderrenamer to do it for you.

Hi,
If you set your camera up so that it names files as a consecutive number ie 1234.*censored word*, then set up Capture 1 as follows;

Open the NEXT CAPTURE NAMING tool
Format = Name_Camera Counter
Name = <YOURJOBNAME>,
that should rename imports as YOURJOBNAME_1234.*censored word*.

That should work.

Regards,
Jonathan

Erm, what does *censored word* mean? I typed three x's in a row as a placeholder for the file suffix, came out as *censored word* Weird. Not helpful. Hopefully you get the idea.

Alternative: instead of camera counter use the 4 digit counter in the suggestion above.

I am running 6.4.3 and cant see how I can just use the original camera file#'s throughout the process. that's how I have always worked and want to continue. Above posts are confusing. Can anyone straighten me out?

Thanks!

Three x's in a row has a different meaning on the internet. Something with 'adult content'. Something for a different forum.
