Adding books: getting metadata from path?

This has gotta be in a nuB post someplace.
But My grepfu has failed once again.

got a folder tree full of files.
but the Filename is just the title. The Author is the folder name.

I looked for functions/templates that'd have the path available before
the book entry is made. But, 'twas joyless.

Clues?

TIA

Not from path. Only file name or internal metadata.

Templates apply to saving to devices only. Calibre controls internal storage

Use a file renamer to rename the files with the basic metadata befor importing
