Convert Files: default to file name?

Post by metaclam » Thu May 29, 2008 12:43 pm

is it possible to make the convert files window default to the original file name?

If I'm dealing with FLAC files with no meta data, I typically set the artist and the album metadata first and then intend to use another tagging tool to get the track number & track title from the file name. But the resulting files are all "unknown track" -- and worse, are not even numbered in the original order.

so basically I'm forced to tag them all first so I know which track is which.

Is there a better way?

Output files will always be named based on the naming settings in the Output preference pane. There is a "Source Filename" option which will do what you want.
