Renaming movie titles for sequels (incremental)
#1
I have been only using tinymediaManger for a few days now and found it is HIGHLY useful for renaming and organizing my movie collections. This product reminds me a lot of Mp3Tag application for my Music Collection. I like it so much that I may start using it for my TV manager as well (I currently use TVRename).

A feature I would like to see added would be the ability to rename movie folders based on if they have sequels so that they are incremented numerically? Here is an example:

Code:

\Movies\
\Movies\Harry Potter 1 (2001)
           \Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone (2001) - 720p.mp4
           \Harry Potter And The Sorcerers Stone (2001).nfo
\Movies\Harry Potter 2 (2002)
           \Harry Potter And The Chamber Of Secrets (2002) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 3 (2004)
           \Harry Potter And The Prisoner Of Azkaban (2004) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 4 (2005)
           \Harry Potter And The Goblet Of Fire (2005) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 5 (2007)
           \Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix (2007) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 6 (2009)
           \Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (2009) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 7 (2010)
           \Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 1 (2010) - 720p.mp4
\Movies\Harry Potter 8 (2011)
           \Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows - Part 2 (2011) - 720p.mp4

This would allow us to organize movie collections at the folder level and it wouldn't affect Kodi ( I use Plex) because it doesn't really care for the folder name as long as the movie meta and is named correctly. 

I thought at first this could be done using the Moveset title rename pattern ($M), but it just creates an additional folder for the movies set and moves them into it. I figured this could be enhanced though to somehow increment the movies folders (eg: I,II,III,IV or 1,2,3,4 etc). Maybe this rename setting can be set in the Movie Set section so that each collection can be controlled dynamically using a renaming pattern like $Q (for seQuel).

I haven't got it to be able to rename it with the movieset tag, if exists, or name it just the title ($T) if there is not a movieset. Is there an "or" operator?

This would be awesome!

you could abuse the "original title" field and fill it that way.
Then use the $O in folder pattern...

Additionally:
create a movie set.
Then the "sort title" should be filled internally with "moviesetname-#order"
This is written to the NFO and Kodi adheres this (you might get wrongly alphabetized movie lists, but they're all beside now)
But... this is not usable at the renamer currently... which won't help you with Plex i guess...
