Ingest: Treat videos separately to photos
« on: April 26, 2020, 08:01:05 PM »
Would you be willing to provide an option to ingest Photos and Video separately?

I would like to be able to ingest Photos and Videos to different directories.  This could be done in two separate ingests where I would select Photos only in the Filter Files drop-down for one ingest and then Videos only in the Filter Files drop-down for a second ingest.  An ideal option would be to provide a Video destination in addition to the Primary and Secondary destinations but then I would also like separate Copy Photos: and Folder Name: for videos destination.

As an example: I like to copy my photos to sub-directories named by date and my videos to a single sub-directory named Videos.

Keith,

You can do this with the {mediatype} variable and Code Replacement.  You could have 'still' evaluate to {date} and 'video' evaluate to {date}/Videos
