Is it possible to Butler create a card with a custom field?

My automation is:

When a card is moved to Done
Create a new card with Title "MY NEW TITLE {{%customfieldvalue}} in list ToDo.

It works, but the new card don't have a custom field with any value, like the original card have.
I tryed to create a new action to set a custom field with the {{%customfieldvalue}}, but at this time the {{%customfieldvalue}} is empty. I think that is because the action ("create a new card") executed before created a card with an empty custom field.

I would like to create a new card with the same value of the custom field of the card that is moved to Done list.

I think you should be using {{%CF_Name}} 

when a card with a name starting with "New video filmed:" is moved into list "Done 🎉", create a new card with title "Preparar projeto e Sources: {{%FilmTitle}}" in list "To Do", and set custom field "FilmTitle" to "{{%CF_FilmTitle}}"

The log:

Running command on board XPTO.
I created card link_to_card in list "To Do".
I cleared custom field "FilmTitle" in card link_to_card.
The command finished running.
Total operations: 2

The second operation just cleared the custom field


without trying the code in Trello, your challenge will be in trying to set the CF on the new card with the custom field from the trigger card. For this reason, I have this created

when a card with a name starting with "Original cartd:" is moved into list "Done 🎉", post to url "" with payload "{\"card_id\" : \"{cardidlong}\"}", create a new card with title "Created: {httpresponse.FilmTitle}" in list "To Do", and set custom field "FilmTitle" to "{httpresponse.FilmTitle}"
Ty man!
