Batch Export Custom Name - Original FIle Number not working

I see various versions of this question going back to 2012 without a workaround or answer. If I want to Multi-Batch export an image from LRC using a Custom Name - Original File Number renaming:

 

My raw image (Canon) 3WXXXX.CR3 to FullSize-3WXXXX.JPG and WebSize-3WXXXX.JPG (two different presets)

The export will strip the Original File Number from the name making impossible to export unique filenames.

 

Am I missing something? Is there some weird import setting I need to tick?

 

LRC version 11.0.1

OS X Big Sur 11.6.1

The example cited shows "3W" and then the XXXX (which I presume denotes the incrementing number assigned by the camera, that you are looking for). If LrC's extraction method turns out to be (as I suspect) looking for the first group of number characters present - then all filenames having this 3W prefix could return the result "3" as their presumed file numbering. That would not happen with the default IMG prefix (which becomes _MG when the camera's set to Adobe RGB). So if my (sheer) guess is r...

The Canon R5 defaults to a Preset Code, in my case 3W0A instead of IMG, but I see the IMG option in the menu setting now so I will try that. Thanks.

My solution is to use the Filename Number Suffix as part of the filenaming.

Could you it explain that a bit more? Do you mean on the camera. Nothing I've tried with custom file name have worked so far.

my workaround is to use separate subdirectories for different versions of the images. They don't get custom banes this way but at least they get put in separate "piles".

Retaining the whole filename as-is will always give you unique file naming regardless of naming settings in the camera - assuming the camera is set to continually increment its counter, and not reinitialise that e.g. for each fresh memory card (or whatever).

 

For example: "Fullsize-3WXXXX.JPG" and "Websize-3WXXXX.JPG" -

or, for that matter, "Fullsize-IMGXXXX.JPG"

The original part of the file name gets dropped and only the custom name is saved. That's the problem.

My point was that in my experience, including the entire original filename works fine. That involves a completely different naming token, than the token denoting a PART of the filename which supposedly constitutes the image number.

 

Is there some particular reason why only this sequential image counter PART must be recognised and extracted for export naming, and why the rest of it must be discarded?

 

I have for many years named my exports with the capture date followed by image filename (which itself always remains just as the camera first wrote it, and that is OK by me).

I should have probably posted a screen grab, but I don't want the original
filename discarded, I just want the custom text "FullSize" and "WebSize"
appended to it. That is what isn't working. The original filename gets
dropped when I multi-batch export and I get the overwrite or use a unique
name message since the filename was dropped.

" I don't want the original filename discarded, I just want the custom text "FullSize" and "WebSize" appended to it."

I am 'late to the party' in this thread, but if that is what you want- [Filename-Custom] then it is easy.

Make ONE Rename Preset in the Filename Template Editor-

{FIlename>>}-{Custom Text}

2021-12-14 07_36_35-Lightroom Catalog-v11 - Adobe Photoshop Lightroom Classic - Library.jpg (The 'Ps' in my example changes in the Export Preset)

Now The Export Presets just need the different Custom Text in each Preset-

2021-12-14 07_27_01-Export One File.jpg

2021-12-14 07_27_45-Export One File.jpg

When you Batch Export using the Export presets you get the so-named files.

You can also set the Export Destination specific for each Custom image.

eg.  Five Export Presets Batched-

 

2021-12-14 07_48_17-Export One File.jpg

And the Batch Export creates the files (renamed) in their corresponding sub-folders.

3Wxxxx(number sequence) is the default naming sequence with canon R5 raw files. I've never tried to change it.
