seqn variable
« on: August 01, 2011, 01:25:23 AM »
Hallo,

why does the <seqn>-variable increase during ingest-job despite the fact that the <Rename Ingested Photos As>-box and the <Sequence>-box are unchecked ?

An option to avoid this would be very helpful.

Are you applying an IPTC Stationery Pad during the Ingest and are you using the Sequence variable in any of the IPTC Stationery Pad's fields?  If so then this is expected behavior.  If not, we'd consider it a bug which would need to be fixed.  No option (checkbox) would be added.

Yes, I did so. Thank you for the conceivable explanation.

Kirk,

I'm applying the local IPTC Stationery Pad without Sequence variables. But the global IPTC Stationery Pad (I do not use during the Ingest) contents a Sequence variable.

OK, we'll look into that then.

Thanks,
