Foobar Conversion Filenames

Can somebody explain to me the method that Foobar uses to name output files when you convert a file format ?

I seem to get appended number strings at the beginning of the file because Foobar takes the playlist number and appends it at the beginning. I'd like to be able to keep the original filenames and not edit after the fact. I'm sure it's simple, but Foobar uses all these "!$#@&^*()" freaking string characters that drive me crazy.... screenshots would be helpful, and a neat addition to TTD's growing FOOBAR FAQ

Re: Foobar Conversion Filenames

all I know is how to keep the file names the same by using this:

%_filename%

does anyone know some more or where to find the list? ssamadhi97, please help!

Re: Foobar Conversion Filenames

....yeah, you need to edit the filename string. I hate that it adds those number strings by default, but it's easily turend off.

Yeah, I can help. There is a whole scripting lanugage for foobar2000 that you can name the files anything you want, complete with nested if statements and stuff if you want to get that complex . A lot of this will rely on properly tagged files, but there's quite a bit of nice stuff you can do with it with a little dedication to writing the scripts.

Re: Foobar Conversion Filenames

Go for it...add the link in wherever you see fit. That same file, with all the formatting strings, is also on your hard drive as the installer puts it there. If you go into the preferences dialog, and then edit the formatting strings, there is a small button on the bottom that says "help", which calls up the local version of this same document.

It's pretty intense once you get into it....
