As the poster above said, maybe I have misinterpreted what the function does, unfortunately as it stands it seems to only be useful if you are doing a folder at a time, or a batch of unedited folders. I'm trying to use therenamer (as I would have thought a lot of people would) as a batch renaming tool, renaming some 1500 movie names to a standard format in a library which has "clean" folder names.
Unfortunately as Ive built my library over a few years, my folder names are simply the name of the movie (so to answer your question, the movie folder is simply "The Last Starfighter"), as I liked to keep a "clean" library. The files themselves were original filenames, with all the relevant info (quality and resolution). This sadly makes your otherwise excellent program a bit redundant, manually renaming each and every movie folder and then pointing therenamer to that fetch folder and then running therenamer is more time consuming than just renaming the movie file myself.
The way I thought this feature worked, and the way it actually does has caused confusion, especially as the TV side of things does it the way I thought the movie side would.
I see why you have written the program the way you have, as when you "get" a movie it is in a folder with a rather messy, but informed name. However if your trying to batch rename hundreds of films on an existing library with cleaned folder names, therenamer becomes more trouble than its worth regarding movies. Its a shame as you have written an otherwise superb program.
I'll certainly carry on using it for TV show renaming though.
As for your suggestion of a different name for the option, I would recommend you make mention of "folder name" in the option so this doesnt cause any other newbies confusion as to where the program looks for name retention.
