my problem is a yearly one, and this year, i wish to see if anyone can provide answers...
in windows 7 i see 3 different attributes for files, either .jpg or .mts (my hd videos)
of date, date modified, date created.
after i sort and batch process my pictures, all my date modified and date created get rewritten to the current date, and only "date" and the sequential files names i give them keep the order...
my videos on the other hand, in a different folder, will be in correct chronological order if i sort by "date modified".
so the question becomes, as i merge them into one folder, or one into the other's current folder...
how do i get them all to appear in correct chronological order, as they were taken, throughout the whole year?
i.e. pictures and videos interspersed. so i can do one big rename selecting all and starting with "2011CV(1000)"
i've tried a bunch of batch file renames, but they rename, rather than allow me to tweak meta data, if anyone has ever been able to batch rewrite the date created, from the windows 7 describer "date" or "date modified", i think it would solve my problem, but i can't find any.
interesting indeed, this is prep for the yearly family video... only after they are properly named can i drop them in adobe premier and edit away.
Who has the answer? thank you for your time and head horsepower.
