Renaming with Renaming-pairs respecting folder structure

Postby joaquin2005 » Tue Nov 26, 2019 9:32 am

Hi,
I plan to rename several folders containing TV shows where I want to add resolution and codec to the season folder.

That way, this is the folder structure I have right now...

TV Shows
- Lost
- Season 1
- Season 2
- Game of Thrones
- Season 1
- Season 2

And this is what I want...
TV Shows
- Lost
- Season 1 [720p h264]
- Season 2 [720p h264]
- Game of Thrones
- Season 1 [1080p HEVC]
- Season 2 [1080p HEVC]

I have around 450 tv shows, and every tv show has a correspond "season 1", "season 2", "season 3", etc... folder.

Since every "Season X" could be diferent from each other, depending on the resolution and codec of the video files it contains, I need to Import a rename-pairs file that allow me to tell the full path of the "season" folder in order to have different names for that folder.

That way... This is not valid for me, because it will rename Game of Thrones (and many others) incorrectly.

Season 1|Season 1 [720p h264]
Season 2|Season 2 [720p h264]

I need to know if it is possible to set up a rename-pairs txt file to tell BRU something like this:

TV Shows\Lost\Season 1|TV Shows\Lost\Season 1 [720p h264]
TV Shows\Lost\Season 2|TV Shows\Lost\Season 2 [720p h264]
TV Shows\Game of Thrones\Season 1|TV Shows\Game of Thrones\Season 1 [1080p HEVC]
TV Shows\Game of Thrones\Season 2|TV Shows\Game of Thrones\Season 2 [1080p HEVC]

That way, the same "Season 1" or "Season 2" folder, can be rename correctly, depending of the folder structure.

Thanks in advanced.

Hi, at the moment this is not possible with Renaming Pairs as only the file / folder name not whole path is matched. Sorry.

Hi,

Thanks for your response.

Can you think in any other solution about it?

Do you know about any plans to include full path in the future?

If the from name contains a "\" or "/", yes it could be considered as a match vs the full path and starting from the end of the path... so :
TV Shows\Lost\Season 1|Season 1 [720p h264]
could be used in the rename pairs file. It matches against full path but renames only the name.
It is something that could be added maybe in a future release.
