    Error in Condition Editor. Need in help in why it's doing this..

    I'm just not understanding this.....
    When i manually test a condidtion it tests true, but when it runs thru FW. it doesn't.

    see screen shot..
    http://www2.theflaggs.com:8080/quickshare/help.jpg

    No condition i create after the entry "convert to dvrms" and before "everyfile" seems to work, reguardless of what I CE i create.
    Anyone know why?

    The wiki doesn't appear to cover this senario.....

    Why not just add the remaining items that you want to do into one big profile.  What I mean is convert to dvrms, cut out commercias, clean up metadata, and convert to wmv all in one profile.

    One more thought.....

     I assume you are starting with a .wtv file and are converting to dvrms.  Have you change the context of the converted dvrms file to "InputFile"?

    Re: Error in Condition Editor. Need in help in why it's doing this..

    Some Programs I would like to convert to wmv, some not...hence no "one big profile" would work.

    I'm sure they are not being "enabled" when FW runs because FW is not truely sequential when it's time to run on the selected directory.
    I think they are failing is because all condition parameters are tested at the time FW runs, instead of step by step,
    Does condition 1 exist....Yes...run it.
    NOW got to condition 2...
    etc...etc..

    The things is after condition 1 runs (convert to dvr-ms) and I restart fw..
    conditions, 2 and 3 still fail, yet they are defined to run only when they see file ext contains "dvr".

    So for me this is very confusing.
    after all these years that this cool program has been out, I would think there is a way.
    I couldn't find it searching this forum or in the wiki(which is very outdated).

    How about a couple of "big profiles"?  For example

    Condition 1- Convert to WMV - SGA (For example tv shows Lost and 24 in your conditions) - Convert to dvrms, cut out commercials, clean up metadata, and then convert to wmv in the same profile

    Conditon 2 - Everyfile - Everything remaining not covered under Condition 1 - Convert to dvrms

    Re: Error in Condition Editor. Need in help in why it's doing this..

    I'll give it a go....
    But how to I take my output file to be the new input file for the next action?

    I spent a bit last night and couldn't find/figure it out....

     

    thank you very much for your time...

    I'm really trying but getting nowhere. The way I'm reading this, the converted wtv to dvr-ms file is now the output file.
    The wtv file (inputfile) is deleted since no other profile really works with wtv files.
    So now I'm trying to do the second step and that is cut out commercials and save a dvr-ms using the just converted output file (dvrms)
    But the next step can't see the darn thing to act upon...


    Andy can you help please?

    I've attached a profile that shows you how to make the Output file the input file.  I still highly recommend you use profiles to do your processing and processing conditions to select which files you do processing on.

    Re: Error in Condition Editor. Need in help in why it's doing this..

    I did try exactly that.
    I'd attach my test profile but I don't see where I can do that....

    Profile 

    Find Commercials in File is set to "InputFile"........
    The next steps there isn't any input/output files choices .....

    If i set "Find commericials in file" is set to "OutPut", the next 3 steps fail, because they need "InputFile"....

    You can scan for commercials on the "output file".  Move the line "Get the value of context["OutputFile"] and set the value of Context["InputFile"] below Write commerical spans as xml.  The commercials should be cut and you will get another "Output File".  Then copy the line "Get the value of context["OutputFile"] and set the value of Context["InputFile"] below CutCommercialsout of a DVR-MS file.  Then your file should convert to wmv.  Add a step before delete files from dtbtemp to do a File Operation to move "Output File" to where you want your wmv to go.

    I am a Lotus designer/admin and windows admin.. and i'm quite sure the directory on the local machine security is fine.
    So now i"m even more confused. Does the error suggest that I have to be logged in, regardless that the DTB directory is set to everyone full access?

    This one might be a question for babgvant, but you could try running filewatcher in the taskbar instead of as a service.  So, disable the service and add DVRMSFilewatcher to your startup folder (also clicking on it will start it immediately).  You should see DFW in black letters in the taskbar.  Report back if this does or does not do the trick.
