Wow, here I am again, facing the overwhelming perspective of using that script. Such power... I feel humbled.
Anyway : my purpose is to tidy up a 230k entries database. I manage songs, midi files, audio samples, midi loops, drum samples patterns and ... videos since recently. I'm considering ebooks, as well : MM wins over Calibre as a Librarian.
MM is 4.05. Works fast and nice in tree node but hangs on tagging even few files, which includes running this script. Waiting for the magic update as I update thousands of entries daily.
I have a couple of questions, maybe obvious but I didn't read anything about it yet. Correct me if I'm wrong:
Would you consider "calling" or mimicking the "Move Buddy File" script ? It is true that while auto organize is awesome, there are things you can do with this script that can't be paralleled. I move quite some buddy files when organizing : cdg, Mixmeister meta info, subtitles and some more. This has proved rock solid and can even be undone with another script. It might be pointless or too much work, I have no clue...
About multi entries fields; I can't figure a way to "sort" separated entries in Genre. I suppose there is quite some reading to do on the topic but I didn't find a lot about sorting inside one field. I didn't really get what the Genre presets are for, besides appending to existing genres. I probably need to look longer.
My plan is to start thinking of genre as "labels", instead of groups and subgroups. This must be the gmail effect... But I still would like to have a hand on master/secondary genres, one reason being organizing the file system. I might fail there as I failed with gmail labels (where resistance proved futile and trees pointless..)
Imagine Tags like "Africa;Latin;Salsa;Mali;Percussions". In some cases, Africa would need to be root, in others that would be Latin or Percs... Not sure what the thinking should be there. I still think that a sorting tool might come handy. Is RegExp designed in such a way that this could be achieved ?
Thanks for reading; I realize this was a longer post that expected...
Any input warlmy welcome.
