[FFmpeg-user] preserve creation time

Is it possible to preserve the creation time of an avi when adding metadata
info such as comment, copyright etc using ffmpeg in batch.

I want to rename the files using the date time original and a tool called
exiftool but i want to record the original filename information first in
the comment.

Whenever I use ffmpeg to do this it remove the date/time original
information. I'm using a build from 20190417. Alternatively is it possible
to rename the file using the creation_time information in ffmpeg?

Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.

Warm regards,

Sian Doherty
