I am new to Lightroom starting with version four. I find it very easy and effective developer, do not have much experience with other modules.

I am using a separate downloader, when I am downloading from the cf card.
When downloading I get a folder named date from date shot, raw files go there. In this folder is a sub folder for DNG. The files get date shot added to their file name.
There is a backup folder where the raw files go according to the same folder and file structure as above, no dng files are backed up.

I have tried to do this in Lightroom, but have had no results.

I also have the downloader to add copyright with year shot after ©.

Can import in Lightroom get the camera, date and year from metadata and use it to dynamically make file structure, file name and copyright, with date and year from file's metadata?

If not, I think you should add this functionality to the import module.
