Latest Photoshop Camera RAW issue

Now when opening a file in Photoshop with Camera RAW, it doesn't leave the extension (CR3 in my case) and hyphenates it from how many times that filename has been opened. Seems ok, but then my actions that are set to save files now forces the name of the file into the action. Thus running a batch or even one action writes over the previous one because the name is being forced rather than maintaining the original filename. Anyone else experiencing this or did Adobe just totally screw those of us over that batch process newly opened RAW files?

Actions are recorded Photoshop steps with recorded step settings, Therefor actions have limited abilities when saving file.  The can save exactly the same file every time by setting the file name in the save step or the can leave the file name alone have Photoshop use it default setting the current document name for saved file type file name.   

 

Photoshop scripting can generate unique file names so its easy to do what you to do.  Scripting is not easy however.  Adobe provides Batch and Script Image Processor they can be used by users to name output files for users actions.  With Batch you can override save as steps file names and the image processor script will not not overwrite file it will add a suffix sequence version the the file name the action would not have any save steps. That image Processor does the file type saving.  There is also an Image Processor Pro  Plug-in script available on the web the is more flexible, Image Processor Pro can run up to 10 Actions ob file being processed to create 10 versions of each image file processed.

Hello, could you elaborate on the hyphenate? if you open it once an hyphen gets added? (where?) and if you reopen the same file, it happens a second time?
