You can use Metadata Values to automatically build the filename of a Recording. You need a XML Metadata Set to continue (as explained in the parent chapter). For this case we will use the example.xml in the folder /Library/Application Support/ToolsOnAir/Just In.
This is how it will be displayed in the Inspector.
- You can use each element of a Metadata Set within a Naming Preset. In the example above this would be "quality", "customText" and "special".
- Open the configuration panel and switch to the Naming Presets Tab. Create a new Preset and instead of using "%" + the variable name, you can use "!" + the variable name, as shown below.
- Now switch back to the User Interface and select the new Naming Preset and adjust the Metadata Set values. The Naming Presets variables will get changed accordingly.
This is a very easy and straightforward way to handle the file naming.
