    Dynamic Naming Problems in 17.3

    I've used the following naming convention for years with no issues:

    [IFCOMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],Various Artists[]\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [artist] - [title][]\[IF!COMP][artist]\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title][]

    The dynamic naming field is correct, and the example it provides base on the dynamic naming is also correct.

    However, on actual rip, it is not working correctly. It is creating a folder for each song.

    See attached screenshots.

    FYI - the problem is for compilations only. Non compilations work OK.

    try this. Your part of the string for a compilation also included creating a subdirectory if the ARTIST or ALBUM artist tag was filled in. That created a new folder for each track artist. I've fixed that but moved that part of the code to the noncompilations so it will use ALBUM ARTIST if it exists, otherwise it will use ARTIST. For some reason, there is an underline at the very end of the file name with your code (and mine) and can't figure out why. Typically that's when an extra space is at the end of the string, but that's not the case here.

    [IFCOMP]\Various Artists\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [artist] - [title][]\[IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title][]

    was an extra space. use this and make sure no space or line return at very end after pasting in:

    [IFCOMP]\Various Artists\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [artist] - [title][]\[IF!COMP][IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[artist][]\[year] - [album][IFMULTI] - [disc_total] CD[]\FLAC\[IFMULTI]Disc [disc][]\[track] - [title][]

    Appreciate your help Gary, but no go. Same issue. I thought it may be a multiencoder issue again, so I just chose Flac. Even the filename column shows incorrectly. I'm sure there is no space or return after the trailing "]"

    Any more ideas? I'm really confused, as I've used this naming for years.

    odd. testing on my machine the naming string works. But I'm not using multiencoder. In multiencoder you have to set the naming string for each encoder in separate places (from what I read).
