    Question File Naming Script For Single Vs Multi-Artist Albums

    I am having difficulty creating a file naming script for single vs multi-artist albums. My output goals are:

    Single Artist
    Album Artist\Year Album Title\Album Artist Year Album Title Track Number Track Title
    Aerosmith\1989 Permanent Vacation\Aerosmith 1989 Pump 1-03 Going Down-Love In An Elevator.m4a

    Various Artists
    Album Artist\Year Album Title\Album Artist Year Album Title Track Number Track Artist Track Title
    Various Artists\1977 Saturday Night Fever\Various Artists 1977 Saturday Night Fever 1-01 Bee Gees Stayin Alive.m4a

    As you can see, I only want the track artist to appear before the track title in cases of multi-artist albums, otherwise it would be redundant. Thanks in advance for the help.

    [MAXLENGTH]80,[IFVALUE]album artist,[album artist],[IFCOMP]Various Artists[][IF!COMP][artist][][][]\[Year] -[MAXLENGTH]80,[album][]\[MAXLENGTH]80,[album artist] [year] [album] [track][IFCOMP] [artist][] - [title][]

    However with album twice and album artist and artist twice you are likely to hit the 260 character limit for path names.

    Thank you, sir. Works perfectly.

    I enabled Very Long Pathnames in Windows 10 so hopefully the 260 wall won't be an issue.
