Output Directory Management [AuI ConverteR Guide]

Tutorials

Read about the output directory, where the converted files are located, and path templates for audio-file conversion with AuI ConverteR.

File name issues

File names have some limitations, that depend on file system of a hard disk drive (HDD) and operating system.

There are limitations:

  • forbidden symbols;
  • file path/name length.

When audio files are converted, file name may be formed by metadata (album name, performer, etc.). Metadata may be long and contains forbidden symbols.

AuI ConverteR truncate file name and replace forbidden symbols according to operating system requirements.

 

Absolute and relative paths

Realative path is path, that added to source audio file directory.

Absolute path is path, that is indicated directly.

 

Example 1. Relative path:

The source file is located into c:\Music folder.

Into the program main window, Directory of output files field contains: ConvertResult.

Converted file will saved into the folder c:\Music\ConvertResult.

 

Example 2. Absolute path:

The source file is located into the folder c:\Music.

Into the program main window, Directory of output files field contains: d:\ConvertResult.

Converted file will saved in folder d:\ConvertResult.

 

To to assign output folder, in the AuI ConverteR main window, at the right Directory of output files field, push the button and select output directory in Open directory window.
