Thanks to all that helped me on my last question. This place and program are great!
I am tagging a bunch of classical music and want to make sure I am doing it the proper way. I have read a lot on the subject and am hopefully doing things correctly.
I am using itunes and am employing the %work%, %movement%, %movementtotal%, & %movementname% fields to populate the tags for Work, Movement Number, Total Number of Movements (Movement Index) & Movement Name.
I have mapped the field as suggested by Florian in order to keep things consistent with both MP4 & ID3v2 (work name, name and movement)
Question: Do I continue to use the %work% field for work, or should I be using the %contentgroup% field. I think I may have been doing it incorrectly and should be using %contentgroup% instead of %work%, but I am not sure. I believe the mapping I did above should allow me to use %work%. I keep flip-flopping so I thought I would double-check here.
I am also using the %showmovement% to trigger itunes to list the song by work name, showing the movement fields.
I am going to populate %grouping% with a unique value for each work so that all the movements of a work will play together, and in order if I decide to shuffle by group. I am not quite sure how I will do this, to avoid different versions or performances of the same song being grouped together, especially with the same composer, and orchestra, but I will probably use %work%-%conductor%-%artist%-%album%-%year%. Hopefully that will not be too long of a field, as my album titles have a lot of information on them, but I need to keep things discrete. Is there a limit to the length of a tag?
Am I employing the proper techniques?
Any help, as always, will be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance!
