Naming as part of Process Recipe?

Postby jhammerstad » Sat Feb 02, 2019 5:25 pm

Hi, I sometimes need different names for the same picture, eg. specific naming rules when entering competitions.
As far as I can see I can only choose tokens for naming of the output file in the 'Output Naming' tool and not in the 'Process Recipe' tool. However, when using the 'Output Naming' tool CO uses this setting for all recipes.

Is it in any way possible to control the naming of the output file so that it only applies to one recipe?

I am using CO 12 on Windows 10

You could create a recipe for a particular competition. In Output naming in the Output tab, one of the tokens you can use is called Recipe Name. You could use that, if you named your recipe appropriately. Or put a name in Job Name such as "XYZ competition" or whatever the rules for that competition say it must be and then use the Job Name token.

Thanks, I understand what you are propossing, but it doesn’t help. First of all I still have recipes where I want to keep the original file name.
But also the name requirements vary from competition to competition. For example some wants the title of the picture (title tag) as filename and others wants photographers name.
All is possible but not just individually for each recipe.

Yes. For this purpose, each Process Recipe has a field for Sub Name on the File tab and what you enter there is unique for that recipe.

Here you enter the value for the token Sub Name that you use in the Output Naming tool. In that tool, you add other tokens, text, sequence number or whatever as prefix or suffix to the Sub Name token.
