How to rename files based on tags?
How to create directory structures based on the tags and move the files?
Renaming files, creating folders and complete directory structures from tags can be done by using the Converter > Tag - Filename
with a format string. A format string is used to describe the structure of the desired filename.
Besides using normal placeholders (such as %artist%
, ...) and arbitrary text (e.g., Music
) it also allows for separating folders with the backslash \ character.
Here is an example that renames the file based on the tags using the Tracknumber. Title
When you're using a backslash in a format string, Mp3tag will create a directory from the part of the format string in front of a backslash.
Here is an example that creates new directories under C:\Music:
The same is also possible using relative path names (instead of an absolute path in the example above) which creates the new directory below the current working directory:
Please note that the whole range of Mp3tag's internal Scripting Functions
can be used in the format string.
