Ingest JPEG and RAW files into separate folders
« on: June 04, 2012, 08:02:21 PM »
I shoot RAW+JPEG and would like to ingest the files into different folders according to type.

I have tried naming the folders in the following way:
{todayyear4}{todaymonth0}{todayday0}\={model}=\{datesort}\={type}=\

with the following code replacement file:

NIKON D50   D50
NIKON D80   D80
NIKON D90   D90
NIKON D7000   D7k
FinePix X100   X100
JPEG   JPG
NNEF   NEF
FRAF   RAF

But, instead of getting the desired folder structure, like for example

20120604
   X100
      20120604
         JPG (containing .JPGs)
         RAF (containing .RAFs)

I get

20120604
   X100
      20120604
         JPG (containing both .JPGs and .RAFs)

Please tell me what am I doing wrong.

I use PM 4.6.9 beta 4 and Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit.
I attach a screen shot of my ingest setup window.

Regards,
Karl

Karl,

What you're attempting to do just isn't possible.  If Photo Mechanic sees a RAW and a JPEG with the same base name then they're processed together and the metadata for the JPEG is used to evaluate the pair, thus both files end up in the same folder.

Sounds like a great idea to me.  Too bad he was not using a Mac.  I bet someone could write a Hazel rule with some scripting if needed to watch the new folders and move any file with the raw extension into the RAF or NEF folder.
