3.1.6 Naming Conventions (just:in Engine Linux v1.0)

While it is possible to enter a Name for each Capture in the just:in User Interface manually, Naming Conventions can be used to speed up the naming process rapidly. From automatic file numbering to timestamps and user customized variables – Naming Presets provide file naming in an efficient and straightforward way. They are defined per Engine and are available for all Channels of the particular engine.

    • Date format: the date format which will be used for the %Date Variable.
    • Counter starts at: starting number for the %Counter Variable.
    • Minimum digits in counter: sets the number of digits when a Counter is used. For example when you set the number of digits to 4, any Counter will have four digits (0001, 0002, 0003…)
    • Split and chunk recording naming strategy: choose what happens with the naming of files captured in Crash Mode.
      • Counter: every chunk's filename gets a static counter Variable
