Better naming scheme for auto generated filenames
« on: September 10, 2019, 06:04:46 PM »
Hello,

Problem:
I.e. when using the autosplit function (CLI) the destination file name is specified with the --save switch. Then the first file is named exactly like provided on the command and al other files just get a 01-99 suffix attached to the file name. This is very uncomfortable for scripting/automatization purposes. Also a maximum of 100 chunks isn't sufficient for larger projects.

Solution:
Raise the number of max. chunks plus add possibility to add placeholders to the --save argument, i.e. filename_#.mp4 for filename_0001.mp4 to filename_9999.mp4 in addition to the current naming schema to keep backward compatibility.

thanks

Do you refer to the legacy Avidemux 2.5.x? There is no autosplit option in the current, actively developed Avidemux.
