deleting "NEF" when ingesting images
« on: April 01, 2009, 05:04:06 PM »
Is it possible to delete the suffix ".NEF" when ingesting photos?  I have tried by using {filenamebase:4,4} thinking that would delete the extension but NEF remains.
My Nikon images are in the format "_DSC1234.NEF".  I am using v 4.6.  I would like to import just the "1234"

Your NEF images need to end in .NEF unless you want to have all kinds of trouble.  To extract the frame number either use {frame4} or {filenamebase:-4}

But Photo Mechanic is always going to put the proper filename extension back onto your filenames.
