I have a folder with a lot of movies in it. Just one folder. No subfolders. Lot's of different movies.

Is there a way to have MCM look at the folder, grab the movies one at a time and create a new folder elsewhere with the individual movie names, then place the movie into the folder and add the nfo, banners, subs, trailers, etc?

Example: D:\ Movies has thismovie.mp4, thatmovie.mp4, theothermovie.mp4

MCM creates a separate folder at D:\ MCM\thismovie\ and places thismovie.mp4 into it, then the associated nfo, subs, trailers, images etc.

Then does the same thing under another folder for "thatmovie.mp4" and places it in D:\MCM\thatmovie\

Is this possible? Otherwise I've literally got thousands of movies I have to create folders for by hand, one at a time.

I just tested dropping a singe file into my Movie library and refreshing the list and movie appear as RED. I then fetched that movie and was put into movie named folder will all metadata/images.

As a Premium user I use the download parser and put all loose media into a watch folder and MCM processes that watch folder on a schedule and movies it to my Movie folder.

So Yes MCM is able to process loose movies and put them into same named movie folders.

There are programs like filetofolder that do this for you also.

Hey kevin13952

I want to second that what you're asking of MCM is the exact reason I started using it in the first place. It has been a while since I started my organization, but you do not need the download parser, although that makes it easier later when adding files some a separate location.

Make sure in the settings you have the organization setup how you want the files to be stored. And in the General tab, you should see "Detect and automatically organize single-file titles". This allows MCM to scan your Scan Folders and if it detects those individual files, it will create the folders based on the metadata it pulls from the various databases. You may have to force a manual scan, but there is definitely no need to make those folders manually. I do recommend if you have TV shows you put them into a completely different folder so you can set the settings differently for TV shows.
