Hi, i’ve been trying to rename photos that are taken in burst of 8 or more in a second…so, the problem is that the software to rename only gives me up to seconds to rename, but when they are in the same second…marks error and only renames the first one :S, i’ve tried a lot of options, but with no success, the most known are:
Rapid Photo Downloader (My personal favourite)
The naming i’m looking for is DATE and TIME like this:
2022-02-28 14.54.00.arw (YYYY-MM-DD HH.MM.SS.ext)
How? where? by the way, i found an option that could solve the problem, but it won’t work as it’s supposed, cause the renaming is done in an awkward order :S , i mean, what i really see in the secuence is something like: 1,2,5,6,7,3,9,4,8 or something like that, so it’s no useful …and here is the link of the photos, it’s a jump and you can see the secuence makes no sense :S
I’m no programer, can you tell me what i should do? i’ve reported it also in the Rapid Photo Downloader app…and here is the link of the photos, it’s a jump and you can see the secuence makes no sense :S
How i know they belong together? cause they are taken in the same seconds…one or two seconds they share time…and if you see the secuence, it’s a jump…from point A to pont B and if you scroll on them, you can see that it travels in time back and forward because the order is wrong :S That’s why i shared the photos, so you can see them :S
And the how i know they are in a particular order, because of time, but don’t know if it has thousandths of a second…but in lightroom never had this problem of displaying the images correctly and renaming them :S
This is from the Rapid Photo Downloader documentation:
Representation of Exposure Time
For photographers, exposure times of less than one second are normally expressed in fraction form, e.g. 1/125. This format is not helpful when naming files, because the forward slash is an illegal filename character for some operating systems. To work around this problem, Rapid Photo Downloader formats exposure times without using the forward slash:
For exposures less than one second but more than or equal to one tenth of a second, the result is formatted as a one character length integer e.g. 3 represents 3/10 of a second
For exposures less than one tenth of a second, the result is formatted as an integer e.g. for an exposure that was 1/125 of a second, the value is 125
For exposures greater than or equal to one second, the value is formatted as an integer with a trailing s e.g. 30s represents 30 seconds
If you have this feature enabled, it could explain why the photos are named so seemingly randomly. It does appear you can turn the “Representation of Exposure Time” metadata tag off.
Well, found a solution even though it’s not the best i think, but it works, contacted the creator of Rapid Photo Downloader and told me to change my naming convention, it’s now a little bit larger but it works.
