Re-naming by giving new names

Post by Optimus » 15 Apr 2019, 01:01

Hi,

I just purchased this program, but I'm unsure how to use it.

I've got picture and videos files with too many duplicate/scramble names. I'm looking to unify all my files in numerical order.

For example, if my files look like this:

Picture 1
Picture 2
Picture 3

I'll be looking to re-name them like this:

1
2
3

Is this doable?

Yes, renaming is generic files without matching them against an online database is supported:
https://www.filebot.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=2072

In this particular case, a format such as this will do the job:

Code: Select all

fn.after(/Picture /)

Alternatively, just using {i} will also work, if you just want to put files into order.

Code: Select all

i.pad(3)

I highly doubt that you want to rename every single file to i.pad literally.

Please read the documentation regarding format expressions and look at the examples, then everything will become clear.

Q: What does {...} do?

Hi,

Where can I read upon this?

I was hoping one could just provide the code I need. I did pay for it.

I've read the Documentation here.

It's all gibberish to me. I have no idea what I am doing.

use e.g.

Code: Select all

{i.pad(3)}
output
001

Code: Select all

{i.pad(4)}
output
0001
ext. will not change

Hi Kim,

That worked. Thank you!!!

In three folders I have images and videos mixed. I wanted to re-name the pictures and videos separately.

Can you, please provide the code needed to re-name them numerical order apart?

I'm then done.

The easiest way would be to rename video files and image files separately:

Hi,

Thank you. I'll give it a go, when I return home from work.

I take it the only options that applies to me would be 1 and 4?

1 to 3 if you're using the GUI.

4 if you're using the CLI.

5 if you're using the CLI on Linux.

Hi,

I'm on Windows?

So, it's 1 to 3?
