Is it possible to create folders based on part of the names of files and then move the files to them?

I have a bunch of anime in a single folder and want to get them in separate folders.

basically they're named like this: (Series name, episode number, title)

example series1 01 episodetitlehere
example series1 02 episodetitlehere
example series1 03 episodetitlehere

i'd like to grab the series name and have the folder named after just that part then all the files with that name moved into it. So really just the text before the episode numbers.

You should set the "batch mode" in move mode, but I don't think you can do what you want with AE, there isn't any tags with regex capability for the destination folder names. You can use the tv show tag tho, but you would need to find each tv serie individually, which kinda defeat the purpose.

Would have to be done with something else, like a python script or stuff like that

could try to write you a quick python script if that interest you

cheers

Send me a quick mail at glambany@gmail.com and explain what you want to do with the most detail you can think of

I'll check what I can do tonight.

I must warn you tho, it won't have a graphical interface, but there is a couple ways to make it work rather well without a command prompt, like a shorcut on the dektop you can drag and drop stuff you want rename onto it..

also, this is windows only, I don't do linux or osx stuff, don't have 'em, can't test on 'em

cheers
