What version of BYE? This is always important to know. Also, you did not say what the exposure was or what you expected to see in the file name.

I tried to duplicate your issue and was not able to, but I did see something that seems wrong with BYE 3.2.2 and my T5i..

Notice that the capture plan called for a 40 second BULB exposure, followed by a 2 second Tv and a 1/8 second Tv exposures. They were logged differently.

The log shows the 1/8 second exposure is shown in the file name to be 18s and is listed as the second image when it should be the third image. This was with the image quality being set to In-camera and the camera being set to Large JPG. When I set the image quality in BYE to be RAW, the images were listed in the correct order, but the 1/8 second image was still named 18s_. My conclusion is that your symptom and mine may both be caused by a bug in the application of the file name template to create the file name.

I would have expected that sub one second exposures would be reformatted when used in the file name. For example, a 1/8 second exposure would display as 1-8s_. This did not appear to affect fractional exposures with a decimal point where a 0.6 second exposure had Tv0.6s_ in the file name. Are you using a period or a comma for your decimal separator?

The full log file from my testing is also attached.

The slash is removed from the filename as part of a last step to remove all filename illegal characters before saving, otherwise the file would not save as Windows would puke. Alternatively, I should replace the / with a filename legal character to represent the "/", anything but 18s.
