Need help with actions


#1

I need a couple of things to sort out to maximize automation of tagging my files.

  1. Need to add an action to count the loaded MP3 files and insert the number in TOTALTRACKS field.
    Is that possible to execute?

  2. I have created action to copy directory name to ALBUM field. However the directory consist of %artist% - %album% so I need to remove the %artist% part that is being copied to ALBUM field.
    Is that possible to execute?

  3. I tag the field ALBUMARTIST and in foobar2k the album artist is empty while the field appears with my desired text. Why is that happening?

This works with selected files ...

Begin Action Group Format TRACK#Set TOTALTRACKS

Action #1
Actiontype 5: Format value
Field ______: TOTALTRACKS
Formatstring: %_total_files%
End Action Group Format TRACK#Set TOTALTRACKS (1 Action)

Thanks a lot.

BTW. I managed to solve the 3rd problem. It looks like Mp3Tag is using field "ALBUMARTIST" and foobar2k is reading from field "ALBUM ARTIST". Putting space in the field name (Options->Tag Panel in my case) did the job and now foobar2k shows both Album Artist and tags which is OK with me.
