Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

Or you could just use this bat script:

SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION
for %%f in (GP*.MP4) do (
set a=%%f
set chap=!a:~2,2!
set vid=!a:~4,4!
ren %%f GOPR!vid!!chap!.MP4
)

 

Place it into the directory with raw files and run.

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

Cool stuff! Doesn't work for me though (neither in Windows nor in Edius), the unaffected filenames need to be complemented with trailing zeros so that the length of the filename is the same. Can you amend the code accordingly? I will also try but I'm not smart enough for that :)

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

is this ok? Works for me but I don't speak this language, so to speak...it's just "logic".

   

    SETLOCAL ENABLEDELAYEDEXPANSION

   

    for %%f in (GO*.MP4) do (
    set a=%%f
    set ORI=!a:~4,4!
    ren %%f GOPR!ORI!00.MP4
    )

    

    for %%f in (GP*.MP4) do (
    set a=%%f
    set chap=!a:~2,2!
    set vid=!a:~4,4!
    ren %%f GOPR!vid!!chap!.MP4
    )

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

Just made the same hideous discovery.  Have 86 x 20-30s clips from cycling tour.  Imported to GoPro app on iPad while on tour using wifi.  Exported from GoPro App to iPad Photos when I got home.  Apple dutifully uploaded to iCloud and now I find the clips are file named: nnnnnnnnn.nnnnnn.mp4.  With no way of interpreting and no meta data.  And time stamps that seem to relate to the transfers rather than the date taken.  Utterly useless.

Hi @rossp45872

 

Do you still have the files stored on your SD card?

How are the names of the files once transferred to your Photos?

Would you mind trying to import a couple of files again.

See if it makes a difference.

If you have access to another device, please try it as well.

 

Thanks!

Ej

I think it's a hell of a thing to edit files in chronological order when mixing timewarp and regular video. And arrange dates don't work in Windows either.

Re: GoPro Video Files Name saving sequence wrong?

I think it is problematic to edit files in chronological order when separating timewarp (GX) and regular video (GH). And arranging dates doesn't always work in Windows. So what you have to do is manually change all files to either GH or GX or use a batch file renamer.
