Dragscript - Camera Expose function configuration

For the Camera Expose function in Dragscript, I’d like to customise the filename output with the use of variables. This is so I can get the fit files named as per a requirement for a specific project (the naming requirements are beyond my control).

I need access to the UTC time of the exposure (hhmmss) and the target name (at least).

e.g. MyPrefix_##UTC##_##TARGET##_MySuffix.FIT

There’s a configuration field already available for some customisation of the filename, but it would be nice to be able to do more.


Hi Chris,

not supported at now. I will put in the todo list.

All the best

Thanks. While I’m adding to the todo list, could the directory path also be customisable with variables, eg Date (YYYYMMDD)?

Look at file pattern:

Ok, I might be able to do most of what I want now via a sequence. Not as convenient as in the Dragscript itself, but quite possible.

I just need variables for UTC time and it would be nice to get Year, Month, Day as separate variables so I can use them without the “-”.

Assuming I can get the sequence to work, I’m not blocked on this. I can write a small post session script to do the final file naming using what is currently available.
