REQUEST: HEX file numbering auto append
« on: July 26, 2012, 06:46:49 AM »
hi guys, first of all i want to thank you for the wonderful job you did. I just have a little suggestion when importing sequential input files: my camera has a dummy way for enumerating files: it use hex format, so i usually have a situation like this:

MOV001.MOD
MOV002.MOD
MOV00n.MOD
MOV00A.MOD
MOV00n.MOD
MOV00F.MOD
MOV010.MOD

and so on...

if i use the "append" feature, the program import files using the decimal sequence: that means that my output file will skip files between 0A and 0F.
Not a big problem: i can add them one by one, but i did a lot of conversions before discover this issue.

I suggest one of the two: implement an hex search (the decimal sequences should work as well) or print a list of imported files in order to quickly have a chek.

thank you so much, have a good day
Roberto

Meanwhile you could use a batch renaming program. Working on Ubuntu and a lot of photos, I do sometimes have similar problems. I use GPRename
windows equivalents can be found here: GPRename alternatives.
I"m sorting on file time index and use rename using incremental numbers: 01,02,03,...,10,11
Perhaps if there is time and priorities allow for it, the developers could implement your suggestion.
Best you modify your Subject to
Code: [Select]

This one is out of sequence:

MOV00n.MOD
Typo ?

thank you Jan, you are right. I am a developer so i can easly make a script, mine was just a suggestion for improving this very good and helpful software.

MOV00n.MOD

n stand for [...] 1 to 9 or A to F
