{type} variable during ingest
« on: July 16, 2012, 09:33:33 AM »

I have a problem with {type} variable during ingest. If I shoot RAW+JPEG on the same memory card and ingest them using {type} variable in the folder name field PM copies all the photos into the same folder. If I shoot RAW and JPEG seperately, everything is OK. Any suggestions?

When RAW+JPEG pairs are found on a disk, PM treats them as a combined pair and uses the metadata from the JPEG for all operations.  Thus the {type} variable only evaluates to JPEG.
