Naming a file based on the folder name
10 views (last 30 days)
So I have a script that can take all the images in a folder and stitch them together into an AVI movie file. It works great. Here's where I need some help.
The script tells ML to start in a root directory, it will look at all folders and subfolders, start in the first one, enter the subfolder, and take the images and create the AVI. Then it goes back out and enters any other subfolders and does the same, then goes back out to the root directory and goes to the next folder, and so on down the line until it runs out of folders to use.
The only thing I would like to do is to have MATLAB name the new AVI file this way: FolderName_SubFolderName_AVI
Any tips are appreciated.

folder = 'd:\all_tests\test1'; % Sample folder name.
[parentFolder, deepestFolder, ~] = fileparts(folder)
[parentFolder, folder1, ~] = fileparts(parentFolder)
baseFileName = sprintf('%s_%s_AVI.avi', folder1, deepestFolder)
fullFileName = fullfile(folder, baseFileName)
In command window:
Also, see my demo, attached, where I recurse into all subfolders.
