Export/Import and local artist art improvements
#41
Test setup

  1. Portable install. Download from link provided for Win 10
  2. Added my usual advancedsettings.xml file. Mainly video functions, artwork resolutions and silent debug mode. No other modification to fresh portable install.
  3. Added test library - 21 Artist albums, 12 Compilation albums (in subfolder), 4 Soundtrack albums (in subfolder). All albums tagged with MBPicard. Most album and artists have local artwork
  4. Set source and scanned media into library- 131 Artists, 38 Albums, 301 Songs (FLAC)
  5. Perform Query Info for all artists
  6. Perform Query info for all albums

First Test
  1. Set Artist information folder to outside of Music Library source
  2. Single File Export.
  3. Destination Folder: Should this be carried over from previous step? I see the previous step as a backup destination,
  4. Items to Export: Albums, Album artists.
  5. No to template
  6. Export ok. All Artists and albums exported.

Second Test
  1. Set Artist information folder to outside of Music Library source
  2. Single File Export.
  3. Destination Folder: Should this be carried over from previous step? I see the previous step as a backup destination,
  4. Items to Export: Albums, Album artists, Song artists, Other artists.
  5. No to template
  6. Export ok. All Artists and albums exported.

Third Test
  1. Separate Files per entry Export.
  2. Set Destination folder to outside of Music Library source
  3. Items to Export: Albums, Album artists, Song artists, Other artists.
  4. No to template
  5. No artwork
  6. No overwrite
  7. Export ok. All Artists and albums exported. Various Artists artist.nfo is full of random data, but that is a MBPicard tagging issue

Fourth Test
  1. Separate Files per entry Export.
  2. Set Destination folder to outside of Music Library source. Different directory from third test
  3. Items to Export: Albums, Album artists, Song artists, Other artists.
  4. No to template
  5. Yes artwork
  6. No overwrite
  7. Export ok. All Artists and albums exported. Various Artists artist.nfo is full of random data, but that is a MBPicard tagging issue

Fifth Test
  1. Export To library folders
  2. Items to Export: Albums, Album artists, Song artists, Other artists.
  3. No to template
  4. Yes artwork
  5. No overwrite
  6. Export not ok- No artist.nfo created
  7. Export not ok- Not all album.nfo created 10:49:53.659 T:9016 DEBUG: CMusicDatabase::ExportToXML - Not exporting album The Very Best Of as unique path not found

---Edit---
For the album.nfo issue- The album is 2cd Fleetwood Mac- The Very Best of. In my folder structure I have treated this as one release. All songs are saved in \Fleetwood Mac\Very Best Of
MusicBrainzPicard has treated each cd as a separate release, even though it is the same album release. When looking at Test 4, it has created two folders for this album The Very Best Of_b444 and The Very Best Of_f665. In Test 5, it has failed to save any album.nfo



General comments
  1. I see a conflict with file names for single file export and multiple exports on the same day. User might be testing, or incrementally building the library and export will overwrite previous
  2. New tag... <scrapedmbid>false</scrapedmbid>
  3. New tag... <musicbrainzreleasegroupid></musicbrainzreleasegroupid> Are there anymore?
  4. Noticed... <track></track> has been removed
  5. Wondering if the "OK" button can be renamed to something like "Start" or "Export Now".

I have one debug log capturing all these tests. If you want to view it, I will send.
