What file name conventions you all use?
There are no doubt some really slick naming conventions.
I'll start. (If this topic has been discussed before please point me to the thread(s). I've not found them.)
For APE and high quality MP3s (for use at home):
%artist%- %album%- $num(%track%,2)- %title%.extension
i.e. Pink Floyd- The Wall (CD1)- 01- In The Flesh.ape
For portable quality/size MP3s:
First letter of artists first name.Artist's shortened or whole last name.Abbreviated Album.$num(%track%,2).%title%.extension
i.e. PFld.TWall1.01.In The Flesh.mp3
(Note 1: Sometimes I'll run an action to put the track number in the title --i.e. 01.In The Flesh-- and not include the track number in the file name. This allows me to see the track number when the portable player shows the title data.)
(Note 2: If there's an action that can create file names by automatically creating abbreviated artist and album fields I'd sure love to know how. TIA)
