How can I set a pattern that will output a filename equal to the original filename? E.g.

I selected this option for file pattern: "Same as input, but with an additional suffix." That gave me filenames like: something.mp3.ogg

Then I just ran

find . -type f -name "*.mp3.ogg" -exec rename .mp3.ogg .ogg {} \;

to get something.ogg.
