Caption from Filename

Is it possible to have royal slider simply use the filename of an image as a caption, so without having to add the caption text for each image in the code? If so, is it also possible to hide the extension in the caption text?
I'm working with a large set of images where the caption text is identical to the filenames.
Thank you!

    There is no such option, by default caption can be retrieved from alt attribute or from rsCaption element within When generating HTML markup on the backend, consider parsing the image URL and setting it as an alt attribute.

    As an alternative, you may disable default caption module and write your own via slider JS API, you may use simple events such as rsAfterSlideChange or rsBeforeAnimStart. To retrieve the path to current slide image URL:
