using db_file_name_convert for RMAN 32 to 64 bit conversion.

I'm a little confused about how this works, or if its just an option for what I want to do, which is, take a copy of a production database on windows 32 bit os and prepare it for windows x86 64 bit. Database is 10.2.0.4
So at RMAN prompt I put in:
RMAN> convert database new database '<newname>' 2> transport script 'f:\oracle\backup\10g64\transport.sql' 3> to platform 'Microsoft Windows x86 64-bit'
where <newname is what I want the database to be called on the 64 bit server.
The files exist in oracle\oradata\<dbname> files on d: and e: drives on source server, will be in same directory structure on new server with possibly different drives.
Do I need to use the db_file_name_convert param here? If so, how?
Searching tahiti on this but have found no clear directions yet..
anyone here done this?
