I'll follow up here instead of your other thread, please do not cross post different questions over multiple threads.
Looks like you changed my example workflow from this very thread in a way that it cannot work anymore. Why would you insert 2 different watchfolders, one for m2v and one for wav - this will just end up in multiple jobs, all of them not knowing what to do?

Basically you need to understand the merging behaviour as explained in this thread:

Guys do you know why sometimes my nodes vanish and end up under other nodes. I was confused and thought i lost some work and didn't export to save it.

Hi abul,

The Workflow editor has several flaws. This issue and hopefully most (or all?) other editor issues has been properly addressed in the next version of FFAStrans.

Ah okay i see,


Does this command in the command executor make any sense?

%comspec% c/ %s_ffmpeg% -i "D:\Abul\Documents\Projects\Trans-Wrapping\merge\%s_audio_filename1%.wav" -i "D:\Abul\Documents\Projects\Trans-Wrapping\merge\%s_audio_filename2%.wav" -c copy -map 0:0 -map 1:0 %original_name%.mxf


Edit: I will have a transcoded video going in as well, but just wanted to if thats how you would execute a command

Pay attention to quotes and paths:

%comspec% c/ ""%s_ffmpeg%" -i "D:\Abul\Documents\Projects\Trans-Wrapping\merge\%s_audio_filename1%.wav" -i "D:\Abul\Documents\Projects\Trans-Wrapping\merge\%s_audio_filename2%.wav" -c copy -map 0:0 -map 1:0 "<what path???>\%original_name%.mxf""

Guys do you know how i can use the populate variable or the conditional to check if the name of a files contains certain characters

e.g

be able to say if Video_test_P2High, contains the value _P2High

I know i can select everything before the P"High from the previous help you have given, but is there a way for me to look for the string _P2High.

refer back to previous naming convention, name_somename_moreName_P2High
or name_somename_morename_High - don't need t do it for this one as i'm using the regext code provided before $regext("%s_original_name%","(.+)_High") to get the name cut and name the final file this.

but if my watch folder contains files with the P2High on it, the final name that i get in the delivey folder is .ext

Hi abul,

You can simply use wildcards like this:

Contains: If %s_original_name% = *_P2High*
Ends with: If %s_original_name% = *_P2High
Starts with: If %s_original_name% = _P2High*

Hope this helps.
