Q: I take many captures (video screenshots). How do I sort and manage the resulting captures?

A: Set the Video snapshots Prefix to this:

Filenames of snapshots will then contain the filename of the original file, position information, date, and time the snapshot was taken. This will help you to sort and manage captures immensely.
