Import of videos in same folder as photos impossible

Post by Alager »

Hello,
importing a bunch of medias (photos + videos) coming from a folder all mixed together, hoping to be transferd in new subfolders, each with a name with this pattern : yyy-MM-dd
The photos are well put in a subfolder with the date it was taken, as sekected in the "subfolder" menu of import window,
but the videos don't go the same, despite the same parameter (yyy-MM-dd) : instead, they are put all together in a folder with today's date, even if I select the case "Rename as pictures...
(Screen copy joined)
Thanks for help

AG

Hello,
I made a couple of tries : in fact, I'd like pictures and videos imported in the same "210901" folder (for example) , but actually, pictures are separated from the videos :(
it seems that the date considered by xnview to import the videos is the creation date on the disk (for the pictures, it uses the real date taken) => .i.e. : the video as been taken by the camera 210901 (Android phone) and imported in Mac 210912, the file name is VID_210901_xxxxxx but it is imported by xnview in a folder named 210912 as all the others independantly the date taken.

Is it sufficiently clear, my english is quite rusted... ?

Best regards
Alager
